“Kick-ass Queen City rock bar.”

We have decades of foggy years promoting local, regional, national and international rock 'n roll shows in the Queen City, and have developed and established such legendary greater-Cinti venues as Sudsy Malones in Corryville during the 90's and the Southgate House in Newport during the 00's. Live music, local bands and promoters, food and drinks!

This is my favorite bar in Cincinnati. Great atmosphere, loads of free shows, and pinball downstairs! Be sure to go on a Friday between 5-8 and for the happy hour - for ten bucks you can get a huge MOTR burger and a pint. Can't beat it.

One of my favorite Dive bars/Pubs in Cincinnati's OTR! Live music every night from a different band. Great outdoor patio with fire pits. Friday and Saturday can be insanely busy so get there earlier if you want to sit down.

MOTR is the answer any afternoon/evening/night. You can hang out on the patio for hours on end after work drinking ale, play some pinball downstairs, grab a burger and fries, and come back at night for live music and drinks.

What a great, chill atmosphere. They made a promise to give Cincinnati free, local, music and have definitely delivered. They serve some decent hard ciders here (one of the only places in Cincinnati) and have a nice patio to hang out on after work.

Hands down my favorite bar in Cincinnati that I've found so far. Instead of being fancy or pretentious like some other OTR places, MOTR is just a tremendously solid place to get beers and a burger with friends. They also have live music (FOR FREE) throughout the week, and draw some pretty big time acts.

I'll echo everything the other reviews have said, and add that MOTR has one of the best weekend brunches in the city. Try the biscuits and gravy or breakfast tacos if you like chorizo!

If you're hungry get the MOTR burger. It's a giant "made as you like it" burger, topped with an enormous onion-ring and fries. It's seriously big enough to feed 2 people, so come hungry!

This place has two awesome things: pinball in the basement (Metallica and AC DC machines!) and a vegan BLT that is incredible! Even if you eat meat, you'll love the vegan BLT.
