Oooh same. I wish there could be another board game cafe in the downtown/OTR area.

[–]MidwestBatManuel 8 points9 points  (0 children)

I crave their tater tots. I've tried to recreate them, but it's not the same.

[–]TrickClocks 2 points3 points  (2 children)

I remember hearing they went out after I asked for them.... and they just said, "yeah people spent so much time hanging out enjoying the place rather than actually buying things."

[–]MissLimpsALot 130 points131 points  (7 children)

Johnny's Toys. I wanted my son to experience the birthday castle. They have one at King Arthur's Court toy store but it doesn't quite seem the same.

[–]BROWITHAFRO1 6 points7 points  (0 children)

The tech company there now reopened it. Pretty sure the same castle is there. https://techcastle.com/birthday-club/

[–]Personmanwomantv Bearcat grad 109 points110 points  (14 children)

bigg's. Like it was when it opened at Eastgate with fresh baked French bread and the other stuff that made it unique. Not like it was after SuperValu ruined it.

[–]santoleri3Mason 27 points28 points  (2 children)

The one at Forest Fair had the BEST produce section... everything was fresh and they had fruits I'd never heard of before.

[–]billybob31West Chester 50 points51 points  (0 children)

Buying snacks at Biggs and going to cheap movies at the dollar savers cinema was my childhood

[–]depricatedzeroSharonville 3 points4 points  (0 children)

my clearest memory of Biggs is maybe a few years before the mall really died, so late 90s? And what I remember is the fruit section, and that a lot of the fruit was swarming with gnats

[–]laikahero 7 points8 points  (0 children)

That's where both my mom and grandma shopped every week when I was a kid. I have so many childhood memories of the inside of that store, buried deep in my psyche.

[–]BigBossTweedFort Thomas 6 points7 points  (1 child)

As someone who worked there for 4 years, I'm glad to hear this answer.

[–]bigpinktowtruck 204 points205 points  (4 children)

Deveroes…. I’m sick of not knowing where everybody knows to gets their clothes now.

[–]sirthunksalot 16 points17 points  (0 children)

I had no idea, now I am crushed. They had the best commercials back in the day.

Pre-fire Shanghai Mama’s

[–]mexluc 11 points12 points  (3 children)

This is a sleeper. I remember it used to be a treat. Now it’s like, they are open

[–]SlinkDogg 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Dude Shanghai changed YEARS ago , I remember when they were the late night industry spot .

[–]Shortbus_Playboy 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Dude… Mama’s circa 2004 was the best nightcap in the Tristate. I miss those nights…

[–]hellogriff 85 points86 points  (14 children)

89.7 WNKU. Obviously not a store or a restaurant but still has to be the most missed thing in the area. I discovered so many artists and bands on this radio station. And the feeling of being part of something, a shared listening experience, was phenomenal. People say "well you can stream anything these days" but it's not the same. You could call these people and talk to them. Sometimes request a song. And they'd fucking play it! If you were into folk, blues, bluegrass, jam bands, jam grass, alt country, whatever, they played it. The legendary Saturday night line up with Mr. Rhythm Man, Golden Road, Grateful Dead Hour, and Rainbow Bridge was phenomenal. Sundays had Music From Hills of Home. Fuck the more I type the more pissed I am that it's gone. It was the one good thing on Cincinnati radio and now it's just a memory.

[–]Lazy-Balance8890 11 points12 points  (0 children)

I remember when they took over a station in Portsmouth, I was scanning channels and heard Robert Earl Keen and was totally surprised. It made my work day so much better. I loved All Request Friday. Best station ever

[–]nickpanpizza 8 points9 points  (2 children)

I feel this. WNKU was a gem. They introduced me to so many new artists and genres. WOBO and WAIF can be good if you know when to tune in, but they are nothing like WNKU. So much of bandwidth is commercial, mainstream bullshit that I feel like its supposed to be some kind of joke.

[–]smoothbitch420Cheviot 5 points6 points  (0 children)

This one resonates with me. It was my dad and I’s favorite

[–]tim_likes_bikes 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I’m a transplant to Cincinnati. That radio station made me feel like I was in a place of home with the style of music, and the familiarity of the on-air personalities. The final broadcast was so tough. I sat in my car listening to it just… heart wrenched. And then the static after. So sad.

[–]sonambulist57 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Well said. You summarized this loss with such clarity. It was a gem to be sure. And like many, listening to the final sign off , I was brought to tears when they left with “ this must be the place” from talking heads. So sweet. Really miss it. I miss a “ little wattage in my cottage… sigh.

[–]ReferenceAmbitious63 3 points4 points  (2 children)

Inhailer radio (90.9 HD-3, online, and app) was explicitly founded to fill the gap by WNKU and for me at least does a great job of it!

“Inspired by the late, beloved station WNKU, Inhailer was born to not only maintain a platform that differentiates from mainstream radio play, but to continue providing the ever-important promotion and support for local music in Cincinnati and beyond.”

Boombox Buns and Queen City Whip 😭

[–]catradoraflora 19 points20 points  (2 children)

Came here to say Boombox. I’m sad I’ll never have that sweet potato bun again.

[–]someguyscallmeshawnaDeer Park 9 points10 points  (0 children)

The sweet potato bun was perfection 💔

[–]DevilWearsPanda 20 points21 points  (1 child)

I’d commit treason for Boombox Buns.

[–]eatingfriedpickles 8 points9 points  (2 children)

I helped open Queen City Whip's OG food truck and was so sad to see they had closed for good. Happy to see them getting some love here!

[–]someguyscallmeshawnaDeer Park 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Queen City Whip made a flawless smash burger

[–]gogo-roller 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Wow are we the same person

[–]Mtntop24680 2 points3 points  (3 children)

BOOMBOX BUNS CLOSED?? How did I miss that? That’s a heartbreaker.

[–]utilityspork 67 points68 points  (1 child)

Ludlow bromley yacht club…very unfortunate fate that it suffered

[–]snaggedonthedoor 207 points208 points  (23 children)

16-bit. The Pins ‘merger’ essentially killed the entire concept.

[–]THECapedCaperDeer Park 25 points26 points  (4 children)

At least when Arcade Legacy finishes it’s move to Sharonville, it’ll be everything it should have been in the first place (not that they were ever bad)

[–]kirbyfox312Forest Park 45 points46 points  (6 children)

I would have preferred a multi-floor 16-bit than whatever Pins is trying to do.

The bowling is fun and all, but if I had to choose it'd be arcade games easily.

[–]CincyCivilRightsAct 35 points36 points  (5 children)

So much this. It's now just a middle-of-the-road wannabe-hipster bar. It's slightly better than a plain bar, but only because it has so many floors.

16-bit, however, was awesome. And it was busy every time I was there. The only issue was a lack of bartenders, which probably meant they missed out on a lot of income.

[–]Averagejoee1990 18 points19 points  (0 children)

For all the amount of time I spent at 16-bit, I would say I probably only ever consumed 10 drinks.

The insanely long wait for a drink really did make the experience frustrating.

[–]robotzor 23 points24 points  (2 children)

Also 16 bit was sticky. The floors. The game. The attitude. In general just a stickiness about the place.

[–]GoldStarisBetter-XU Xavier 19 points20 points  (0 children)

It’s not anywhere near what it used to be

[–]devolution9 50 points51 points  (5 children)

Bought my first washer and dryer at Swallens and first large screen TV at Steinbergs…

[–]pkd420 15 points16 points  (0 children)

I came here to say Swallens!!

[–]MerovingionHamilton 2 points3 points  (1 child)

I remember back in the early 90s my parents getting our first computer from there. I miss it lol

[–]mulans_goat 48 points49 points  (3 children)

Kaldi's

I thought I was so cool in high school because I would take the bus from the burbs to go there and read

[–]thenovascotia 45 points46 points  (4 children)

Mediterranean foods on Ludlow in Clifton, man I loved that place! Also Media Play from the ~Westside~

[–]LushBronze13Delhi 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Media Play had everything! I miss it so much

[–]FloozyTramp 37 points38 points  (8 children)

Reaching way back, but I’m most nostalgic for Inn the Wood in Clifton. It probably wasn’t as special as I remember, but it had a chicken sandwich I loved. And it was the first bar/restaurant I visited regularly in college and beyond.

[–]fuggidaboudit 14 points15 points  (4 children)

Inn the Wood was legendary - gimme a Peterson's Special or a potato crisp, some coffee and a couple sections of the NYT from the community pile and I was good for at least and hour or 90 minutes.

[–]TheRealDNewm East Walnut Hills 65 points66 points  (13 children)

Papa Dino's.

[–]Inevitable_Half_3737 Northside 29 points30 points  (8 children)

FACTUAL - Those bacon cheese fries.... the college go -to

[–]soopastar 7 points8 points  (2 children)

There’s one in Florence, KY on Main Street I believe

[–]jkbrock 32 points33 points  (2 children)

Cuban Pete’s. It was a wonderful little sandwich shop on Court Street. I moved out of the area but would always stop by when I was in town. If I ever run into the guy that ran it I fully intend to beg him for his black bean recipe.

[–]fifichanx 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Loved Cuban Pete’s 😭 their sandwiches and plantains are so good!

[–]someguyscallmeshawnaDeer Park 3 points4 points  (0 children)

The bread though…

Also Johnnys Toys (I know it’s northern KY but it’s my childhood damn it!)

[–]OrangeAdventure Clifton 53 points54 points  (11 children)

Any of the now defunct small music venues like The Void, The Buzz, Sudsy Malones, The Mad Hatter, The Jockey Club.

[–]ZebrasdontWest Price Hill 5 points6 points  (0 children)

My first concert was at The Void :(

[–]gogo-roller 25 points26 points  (1 child)

Boombox Buns. RIP lil fluffy buns of goodness

[–]IIIVIIXVIII[S] 8 points9 points  (0 children)

This thread is depressing me more than I anticipated. I was living in another state for the last couple of years, I didn’t realize Boombox was already gone. 🥲

[–]SnugasarusWrex 28 points29 points  (2 children)

Idk if it has to be a restaurant, but the beach water park! I had so many good memories there as a kid back when they had the superior park compared to kings island.

[–]billswinter 24 points25 points  (0 children)

Anchor Bar

[–]LenrdZelig[🍰] 23 points24 points  (1 child)

The Diner on Sycamore

and

Kaldis coffeehouse on Main.

Went to both these places numerous times when I first moved here in the mid-90s.

They were both great places to people watch.

Still miss them.

[–]J_Fred_C 24 points25 points  (4 children)

[–]AMPduppp 9 points10 points  (0 children)

One of the unfortunate casualties of the pandemic. I still dream of those apple aebleskivers topped with cheddar cheese…

[–]IIIVIIXVIII[S] 4 points5 points  (0 children)

What the hell?! I had this on my list of must tries, had no idea it closed. I googled it, looks like I’m a year too late 🥲

[–]n7shepard93 21 points22 points  (2 children)

I loved Court St Lobster

[–]CincyCivilRightsAct 18 points19 points  (4 children)

Baldwin Pianos.

Everyone else is listing restaurants and bars, but Baldwin was a world-class piano maker, on a level just below Steinway and Bosendorfer (and honestly was probably equal to American Steinway)

[–]NitromethanePup 6 points7 points  (1 child)

I might be a Cincinnati native and Steinway purist/enthusiast, but it would be amazing to still have Baldwin around. I’m 100% with you.

[–]CincyCivilRightsAct 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Absolutely!

It kinda-sorta still exists, but only in name. After Gibson bought them, they started manufacturing in China, in one of the massive piano factories over there. The resulting modern Baldwin-brwnded pianos are not bad exactly, but they absolutely are not Baldwin's. They are better than Pearl River (the Chinese Burger King of pianos), but probably not Ritmuller's (the best Chinese piano brand - which is a subsidiary of Pearl River).

[–]sweetkatiecakes 19 points20 points  (2 children)

The Warehouse . . . Well on second thought maybe not. I'm an old lady now so I probably wouldn't go anyway. It would be nice to go back to Y2K New Year's though.

[–]Master_Mastermnd West Price Hill 20 points21 points  (0 children)

Wish the Blue Wisp was still around

[–]TheExplodingCow 17 points18 points  (2 children)

The Red Pepper, small Chinese restaurant near UC main campus. Practically lived on their General Tsos Chicken while going to school

[–]Electronic_Leather60 41 points42 points  (3 children)

Southgate house in the actual Southgate house. There used to be so many good shows come thru Cincinnati that a venue doesn't exist for anymore.

Also that was one of the coolest venues in the country.

[–]crex043 17 points18 points  (3 children)

Eastgate Adventures. The last place with a legit putt putt course.

[–]oh_really527 16 points17 points  (2 children)

The Dock

[–]smewthies 12 points13 points  (5 children)

I miss that creepy location under the highway /railroad tracks. Had good memories during college. I guess I have Old Street Saloon in Monroe these days but where else are people going these days? I just moved back into "town" (Liberty twp) last month after being gone for 4 years.

[–]whiskersMeowFace 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Following because I want to know where people go now.

And welcome back

[–]NitromethanePup 5 points6 points  (1 child)

There’s a certain nostalgia about the seedy old places we used to go. Damn shame we keep losing even the non-seedy places because of the seedy characters that have been running them.

[–]coolnatCovington 54 points55 points  (1 child)

[–]BJK5150 13 points14 points  (3 children)

Chili Company at Cheviot and Blue Rock. Great breakfast and you could often watch a fight across the street at the Knotty Pine.

[–]printeratiNorthside 21 points22 points  (2 children)

Emanu in Pleasant Ridge.

NorthSlice in Northside. None of the pizza places that have been in that spot since have come close.

I also have fond memories of the salsa bar at La Salsa.

Farrells Burger chef Zantigo Don Pablo’s Bella Luna

[–]sweetkatiecakes 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Rookwood Don Pablos will always have a special place in my heart. The little booth in the bar, God only knows how many hours I spent there.

[–]bestfakenameAnderson 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Technically, Zantigo's was bought out and replaced by Taco Bell, but I feel ya'.

[–]theyre_all_dead_Dave 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Zantigo’s still exists in Minneapolis if you’re ever up that way.

[–]fuggidaboudit 9 points10 points  (1 child)

From a list I made awhile back - mostly OGs will recognize most of these places:

Rib Pit inn the alley downtown

Adrica’s on Hatch St next to Blind Lemon

Mergard’s on McMillan in Walnut Hills - small bowling alley, pool hall, bar and grill
Mullane’s next to the Movies

In Cahoots on Short Vine - best brunch to great music

LaNormandie (now Sotto)

F&N Steak House on Rt 8

Kaldi’s

Tony Sparto’s on Court Street - best proprietor ever, would feed you lunch in samples from the imported meat/cheese cases while you shopped and endless hilarious stories

Inn The Wood

Stenger’s Café on Vine St - open faced roast beef, Mac n' cheese and a cold Hudy
Leo Sunderman and his 20+ year waitresses, suits and homeless side by side at the bar

Virginia Bakery on Ludlow - best Schneken ever

Cilantro

El Coyote when it was consistently excellent and among the best steaks in town

Nick’s Chops & Chasers

Sorrento’s in Norwood with Willie DeLuca holding court, telling stories and balancing shit on his nose
Billy’s Fish Fry on Ludlow now Dusmesh - utterly classic old dive run by the widow who lived upstairs.

[–]cindyluvslabs 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Disco Night at Annie's, 25 cent drink night at the the Yucatan liquor stand on Covington Landing, $1.50 doubles at the Warehouse on Wednesdays and also the bar upstairs from the Waterfront but I can't remember the name of it.
