Hello fellow 11W's

I am going in a group of 6 to Cincy this weekend for my cousin's bachelor party (that poor soul). That being said, we are getting to town mid-day and then attending the Reds game that evening. I have been out in the area before and have hit up some of the usual suspects but am looking for any and all suggestions on how to send my cuz out with a bang (not literal, although suggestions on a gentleman’s club would be appreciated).  I thought about taking him across the river, hitting the casino, etc. I have faith my 11W fam will come through with solid suggestion and maybe some entertaining stories.

Tour the current breweries in Cincinnati.  http://www.cincybrewbus.com/

Rhinegeist and Mad Tree have pretty sweet taprooms.

Two words: Brass Ass, you all might go out with a bang, literally

In all seriousness, the breweries option is always good and they make great beers. Made tree, Christian Moerlein taproom, 50 west, Rhinegeist, and Rivertown are some good spots to chill for a bit.

Very popular option for bachelor and bachelorette parties is the Banks on the river. Tin roof, Holy grail, Jefferson Social, and Yardhouse. These places are usually the spots before and after Reds games, pretty packed.

As for gentlemens clubs, eh , Cincinnati doesn't have great ones. I wouldn't even consider them good. Best one may be Concepts in Lawrenceburg, Indiana. Note, this is very near Hollywood Casino, which is a much better option than Horseshoe in downtown. Other places include Brass Ass (you may catch something, not full nude either) and Playpen (also known as pigpen)  From experience at both places you have a chance to swindle the women into doing more.
-My take, skip the gentlemen's club unless you want to go and laugh at and degrade loose women with no standards whatsovever

I haven't been to either in a while (about 1 year ago for each), but I recall Horseshoe being nicer and just cleaner in general than Hollywood.  Also, it's no smoking, so I'm a fan of that.

MadTree is my favorite of the local breweries, but if you want to stay in the downtown area you can take a cab up to Rhinegeist from GABP, only about 2 miles. Don't walk it unless you want to take a stroll through the hood

Degrading loose women has been a staple of the American way of life...but thanks for the insights. Might have to skip the peep shows.

Heres what I'd do....

If you get here early enough the brew bus is a great idea.  MadTree and Rhineghiest are good spots to enjoy a couple pints but not more than a couple.  Keep the train rolling.

Look into The Senate or Bakersfield for food.  Yahoo just called Senate the best hotdog in America and Bakersfield is a taco tequila/ whiskey bar.  There will be a wait in OTR regardless for a group your size so expect to go The Lackman for dinner warm up.  They have local beers and some special release whiskeys. 

After dinner before the game head to Yard House (impressive tap system and beer list) or Holy Grail (this is where they do Reds trivia before the games).

The 16 oz cans are the best value in the stadium but you can only get them from the UDF stand on the main level by the front gates and upper level behind home plate.

There is the new craft beer bar along the left fiend line which is impressive but expensive.

After the game you can stay on the banks but its going to be a weird mixed crowd of people of all ages.  I'd head to Haufbrau in Newport or Neon's, Righteous Room, Scene Ultra Lounge

PS...  If you have enough time when you get down here hit up The Party Source for liquor because beer just doesn't stay cold in hotel rooms and you can get airplane bottles to sneak in the game to avoid $8+ dollar beers. 

The closest gentleman's clubs are way out by Hollywood in Indiana or Sparta KY that is if you don't want to drive to Dayton Ohio.  the comedy show named above is just that...  I wouldn't waste your money.

I'm a big fan of the Horseshoe but if you're not experienced gamblers Hollywood would be a better bet with the lower table limits.

Nothing like dancing on the field in 02...

What Toad said.  Though the Yardhouse can be expensive - likely paying at least $1 more per pint just because they have so much to offer and for the location.

I'll also throw The Eagle in there in OTR.  Best fried chicken I've ever had.  Anywhere south of Liberty on Vine or Main should be good to go.

If you're looking for something to do mid day before you get too rowdy, check out Belterra Park for some horse racing and slots. They usually start around noon and go until 6. Do not go into Kentucky for any gentlemen's clubs. Stricter laws kind of eliminate the reason for wanting to go to such an establishment in the first place.

Also as a personal favor to a friend I would be remiss if I didn't mention The Littlefield in Northside. It's a newly opened bourbon bar with a cool selection of bourbons and craft beer, apps and smaller entrees, among other things. Really good stuff.

Jefferson Social - great place to wait for your Yard House table.

Bobby Mackey's - Old country bar...haunted...great place to watch someone get the s**t kicked out of them with Kenny Rogers playing in the background.

Molly Malones - Great Irish theme bar, great Irish Coffee, and great "talent" behind the bar.

If you're on the east side, 50 west brewery is a good stop along side of FlipDaddy's - good burgers and craft beer.

If you're starting on the North side, try Smoq, or Pappadeaux for a food base before you head downtown.
