About Mount Adams
Mount Adams, a neighborhood just east of downtown Cincinnati, is an oasis in the city. Surrounded by the 186.29-acre Eden Park, it's a sought-after section of town, with historical and cultural attractions, diverse restaurants, and an abundance of nightlife. During the day, visitors can learn to paint or draw at Studio 23, enjoy coffee and a pastry at one of several coffeehouses, browse antique and gift shops, or visit Eden Park. Contained within Eden Park are the Cincinnati Art Academy, the renowned Cincinnati Art Museum, the 75-year-old Krohn Conservatory, the Murray Seasongood Pavilion, and Playhouse in the Park, a theater where you can enjoy dinner before the evening's production. If you prefer a meal on the town, offerings range from the higher-end Mount Adams Fish House to paninis and salads at Guido's. After dinner, Mt. Adams has several options for a drink or two. There's the friendly Longworth's, which sports outdoor seating and bar food, the Blind Lemon for live music, or the intimate Bar 950. The neighborhood's rich cultural and entertainment offerings make it a must-see when visiting Cincinnati. Its current attractions are almost as interesting as its history; Mt. Adams was named after John Quincy Adams, but its former moniker, Mount Ida, was a tribute to an old woman who lived in a tree.
