“a meeting place for artists and strange creatures”

Rake's End is a meeting place for the DIY-minded, artists, any variety of strange creatures perhaps misunderstood or ignored by Cincinnati's more commercially-driven venues. The Rake's End is located in the historic Mohawk-Brighton district of Cincinnati, now known as Cincinnati's West End neighborhood. Brighton is home to several art galleries including Semantics, Museum Gallery/Gallery Museum, Synthetica, Third Party, as well as the Mockbee, the state of Ohio's oldest hardware store Hartke Hardware, the historic Sterling Ice Cream factory building (now home to a moped shop and artist studios) and The Brush Factory custom clothing and furniture design studio.

rake's end is a super funky and incredibly cool place to grab a drink. it has awesome, unique art made by the owner/bartender himself hanging all over the place. sometimes theres even live music which can range anywhere from 90s hiphop to borderline musique concrete. the place is a little off the beaten path but is definitely worth a try!

Totally funky bar in Cincinnati's West End aka. Brighton. I once heard Rake's described as Tim Burton's favorite bar. It's self proclaimed a DIY bar for artists musician types. Went here on a live music night with a great house DJ set. If you're not familiar with the area it's a bit sketchy / underpopulated. Totally worth the visit though. I feel like I hit the goldmine and got a little feel for Berlin in Brighton.
