How would you rate OTR Live?
We paid for VIP status instead received very subpar status! Only great thing that Mint Condition gave a hell-of-a performance! However, we WILL NEVER go to that establishment again!
They bring in live artists/musicians
Great space....drinks...and people!
Love the Treehouse Patio. The design is meant to inspire fun. Sip your drink and swing. Great outdoor setting and award winning design.
Absolutely the worst venue/show I’ve ever been to. Not only were there people starting fights with each other everywhere, the artists my friends and I paid $227 to go see (there were three of us) didn’t come on stage until 3 in the morning. We also found out the tickets we bought for $65 a piece (plus fees) were actually $50 at the door. It made absolutely no sense. There were people smoking cigarettes inside, among other things. I watched a bartender charge me for four drinks, laugh about it with her coworker, high five, and give me three. I would have said something if I wasn’t positive I’d get hurt by someone there. DO NOT GO HERE. IT IS GARBAGE.
This bar is a very popular spot for the college crowd. It is technically the indoor portion of the treehouse bar, as they are connected and patrons can walk between the two freely.
While the DJ usually plays great dancing music, the volume is well beyond safe levels. Extended exposure to this volume will damage your hearing. There are usually a few puking girls outside near the bouncers, disgusting bathrooms, and a super crowded bar. The outside is not as loud but still very crowded.
On the positive side: The club-lighting is well put together, good crowd of people dancing, good people watching, and outdoor section has rope-swing seats at the bar. This place attracts single folks who are ready to mingle...
Ive had an ok experience but really just on here to ask what the real hours of this place are?? Left something there 2 weeks ago and everytime I've went back to get it they're closed & won't pick up the phone..AND. always says their open online
One bar. Hard to get drinks
Went to this venue to see Lil Wayne last night not knowing the place or it's reputation. What I discovered was a great space to veiw a one of a kind experience. First thing I noticed was the size of the place. It was small enough to get up close and personal with a world class artist but large enough not to feel cramped and over crowded. Next was the bar, fully staffed and stocked. Never waited longer than a few minutes for a "drank". The one bartender I frequented was crazy cool and even made the "drank" with some bite, if ya know what I mean. A real quick shout out to thicc and tatted up. Forgot your name baby girl but I see ya!! Thanks for keeping me wet as a dolphin's back. After that was thier security staff. Top notch! Real professionals. Kept it "G" from the gate, literally and figuratively. Never seen them hassle noone and were helpful with directing me to the VIP section when I was 4/5 Tito''$ & Bull$ in.. When they do thier job to that level that helps attract great talent. Not talking Weezy if ya know what I mean. Last but definitely not least was the people. Great mix, everyone vibed and there was no incidents that I witnessed. That's what happens when all the things above come together to create a great atmosphere. The whole place was jumpin' and it seemed that all were there to share and enjoy a once and a lifetime show. All said and done I'd give this place 10/10 but am limited to only 5 stars. Highly recommended and mad respected. If you haven't been, you sleeping on the place. Dont cheat yourself, treat yourself yo!!
Pretty nice place, i always have a good time here. Get pretty crowded so get there early, have drinks and fun enjoy the night out meet some cool people
Great music, drinks and ppl! Had a blast!
Sat dec 8 was trash Dj literally played the same songs the whole night I heard I’m upset about 5x that night and mo Bamba about 4x didn’t play good music/different music until it was time to leave 😒
good place. good drinks. good dj and music. gets crowded so get in the door as soon as possible
It's lively on Saturdays. It's always a fun time. Clean. Great DJs. Good times. A place to escape and let loose.
A lot of people don't realize that OTR live is connected to the tree house. Both establishments on a Saturday is to say the least unpleasant. I would suggest going on any other day because in the beginning this place had potential to be one of the livest outdoor patio bars that Cincinnati has seen.
Besides the WWE brawl it was nice
The police and security is rude and disrespectful and they get physical. And they call females disrespectful names and they obviously don't want business. DONT ever go there. It's a dirty place and the workers will treat you like you nothing. And tbh they really don't have the right. This is not the club to go to. Me and my friends are scarred for life. Thank you for the worst experience of my life
I went to this club because it was recommended to me by locals to go here (I was on a mini vacation in Cincinnati) This place was amazing! Great music, generous staff, and a very nice atmosphere. Outside there were swings to sit on and have conversations with others and inside it was more of a hip hop feeling where people were able to dance and enjoy themselves to the fullest.
While the Treehouse half is pleasant during the week, this is the trashiest bar in OTR on the weekends. Beware this bar on Friday/Saturday. Whether it’s a fight, shooting, or another cameo on r/publicfreakout, OTR Live is by far the lesser choice when compared to the great overall bar scene in Over The Rhine.
thw Security is rude overly aggressive with the females police says they get a lot of complaints about the security and the staff there
Great atmosphere, great dancing but shitty bartending! Holy fuck you literally have to wait at the bar for an hour to get drinks. Its ludicrous. Even with 4...read this and 4 more
