“Historic beauty with a contemporary touch”

The Lackman is a one of-a-kind bar experience by Four Entertainment Group (4EG). Located at 1237 Vine St., the bar is on the first floor of the Lackman building, built by turn-of-the-century Cincinnati brewery Herman Lackman. The bar’s signage reflects the label Herman Lackman used on his beer bottles.

The Lackman is a new addition to the Gateway Quarter neighborhood of Over the Rhine and includes a full bar and eclectic wine selection. The diverse beer selection includes 14 beers on tap and over 30 bottled beers covering microbrews, imports and domestics. The knowledgeable bar can assist, suggest or educate customers on their selections. The jukebox includes a handpicked eclectic mix of indie/alternative music, local talent, as well as the classics.

The 900 square foot building has been carefully preserved of its historic beauty, retaining the original tile floor and exposed brick while incorporating modern charm and convenience. HD flat screen televisions, three custom handmade chandeliers by local artists Ted Gantz and Bob Dyehouse and the large plush leather bar stools are just a few of the contemporary accents.

Plain and simple, the best Old Fashioned in Cincinnati. Maybe in the midwest. Period. That's what you need to order here.

Very basic, with a solid beer selection and service. The Lackman is a great place to hang out with friends, whether you're watching football on Sunday or just waiting for a table somewhere in OTR.

Just another bar. I'm not crazy about it but people seem to like it. It can be nice during the week when it's not too crowded

This was the first OTR bar I ever went to and it's remained one of my favorites. Great selection of beers on tap, pretty much all local and the bartenders don't skimp on the liquor for mixed drinks. Brandon's right about the pretzels. Especially after a few drinks.

Nice place with a simple aesthetic. It's a great place to go to while you're waiting for a table, or better yet, go late at night when it's cleared up. You can have great conversation without having to shout across the table.

Lackman is a great bar to hang out in while you wait for one of the many restaurants on Vine to text you for your table.

A nice spot to grab a pint or a cocktail. Nothing too fancy but quite enjoyable.

When you're strolling along in OTR, perhaps waiting for a seat at The Eagle or Senate, the Lackman is the perfect place to stop in for a drink or two. I know it's my favorite pre-dinner drink spot. The drinks are always perfect- nothing fancy- just perfectly executed.
