““The back yard of Over-the-Rhine””

Described as “the back yard of Over-the-Rhine,” The Famous Neons Unplugged is located at historic Over-the-Rhine neighbourhood. With plenty of outdoor space, a bar on the first floor inside, and a second floor lounge, Neons is the place to be on Main Street in Over-the-Rhine. Try to snatch a game of shuffleboard before the bar fills up, or go upstairs and shoot some pool while watching the game on the television.

A definite favorite of Cincinnati's nightlife scene.

Two tips: 1.) there's a second floor with a pool table and lounge that rarely has a crowd. 2.) the second floor also has a bathroom that also rarely has a crowd.

Neons is a great place especially when the weather is nice. If the weather is cool there's almost always a fire to keep warm outside while you play "jenga" with 2x4s. Inside they have shuffle board and pool table. Regardless of weather they always have a great selection of beers and spirits!

One of my favorite bars in the city, not to mention it's dog friendly so you don't have to leave your pooch at home!

I go there for their outdoor space complete with craft beer, life-size jenga, Eli's BBQ, and an occasional dose of live music. One of my favorite places to have a drink and chew the rag.

You can play life-sized Jenga! It's very relaxed, and backyard patio somehow manages to always be just bustling enough while giving you room to breathe. A perfect place to start your night, whether it's a weekday happy hour or 11pm on a weekend.

The life-size Jenga is a must. Nothing's more fun than having a few beers and testing your precision and steadiness. The outside area is great with lots of seating, a bar, and food preparation. I haven't been on a weekend yet but it's definitely ideal for after work drinks.

Great outdoor bar area, and if you can't tell, also a favorite place for Roadtrippers happy hours (tm).

Had my first taste of firefly amber on tap, and it was quite good. Also giant jenga and grilled meats on hand.

Went here after work for drinks with a large group. The outdoor patio is ginormous, as is the beer selection. Neon's is up there with the best of the OTR bars, and is a great place to spend an evening.

Neon's is one of the best bars in OTR. They make excellent drinks with generous amounts of liquor. They have a great outdoor patio with plenty of tables/chairs, fit pits in the winter, bocce ball, life-size jenga, and in the summer, feature the best BBQ around in Eli's for $5! You can bring your dogs and sit outside. Never a cover. Always a blast!
