The first authentic Hofbräuhaus in America, modeled after the legendary 400+ year-old Hofbräuhaus in Munich, Germany. There are a couple of these now across the US, but this was the first venture in United States. The location is in a old building reminiscent of the original beer hall in Munich. There is an outside beer garden as well overlooking skyline of Cincinnati. The hall is located right across the street from Newport on the Levee, a destination spot for entertainment and dining. This is a great spot for pre-gaming before Reds or Bengals games.

Mainstrasse is a turn of the century German village located in Nothern Kentucky. The location is very accessible, in downtown Covington right across the river from Cinicinnat, Ohio. The bars located here are what I label as your "hole-in-wall" venue, and I do not mean this in negative context. Rather you local dive type of bar, instead of some trending, upscale, stuffy atmosphere. There is a good mix of bars based on your style and type of crowd or entertainment you are searching for. None of them charge a cover, unless special event going on. My favorite in The Village Pub. As for restaurants, there a a few classy joints with excellent food, I recommend Ottos & DeFelice. If you are just looking for good pub food, Cosmo's and Cock n' Bull would be the place to go. The village sponors several festivals throughout the year including Mardi Gras, Maifest, and Oktoberfest to name a few. There are cool little shops and galleries in the area as well. If you are in the greater Cincinnati area and looking for a place to hang out, I recommend putting Mainstrasse on your itenerary.
