Sit down for some tapas while you experience one of their famous karaoke or trivia nights, and make sure to check out the calendar for their next live music act. This place is perfect for a low-stress, high-caliber night out with close friends, acquaintances you occasionally grab dinner with or a hot date.7454 Beechmont Ave., Anderson, 513-827-9146.$$.

If you love New Orleans delicacies and an incredible beer and wine suggestion for every meal, then this authentic establishment is right up your alley.2062 Riverside Dr., East End, 513-861-2484.$$.

4 German Bars with Food

0 Comments · Wednesday, February 29, 2012
The two things I am most proud of after working in a German bar for a year are being able to carry three liters of beer in each hand and taking a warm sauerkraut juice and Jager shot without letting out a whimper. If you like pickled things, meat and carbs then German cuisine should be a must.
