“Arnold’s [Bar & Grill] is a historical, legendary downtown Cincinnati destination with a reputation for good food served in friendly surroundings at moderate prices. The two buildings that make up Arnold’s Bar and Grill were built in the late 1830s. The bar room at 210 East 8th Street was originally a barbershop and the other building, 208, first housed a feed store with the adjacent courtyard used for a stable and carriage house. Simon Arnold opened his tavern in 1861 in the same room that continues as the oldest bar in the city of Cincinnati. Since that time the bartenders have changed, different rules allow women to enter through any door now, and the cost of a beer has increased slightly. During prohibition, a kitchen was added and Arnold’s was converted to a cafe. The second-floor living area became dining rooms and second-generation owner Hugo Arnold lived on the third floor with his family. Legend has it that he left the bathtub on the second floor to be used for bathtub gin. The bathtub became somewhat notorious and remains today (without the gin). . . . Over the years, Arnold’s has achieved and maintained a wonderful reputation for good food served in friendly surroundings at moderate prices. “
