The world is strange… there’s no way escaping that. But the strangeness of social distancing, mask wearing and everything that goes along with it shouldn’t mean that you can’t get out and have a drink, feeling human along the way. How do you do it, though? New Riff has figured out an inventive way for us to be safe, while enjoy a cocktail and some beautiful views of the Cincinnati skyline as well!

The Riff Top Pop-Up Series

This series officially kicked off on Independence Day weekend, and it continues all through July. It’s a simple concept. From 12-10 pm the terrace at New Riff opens up, usually featuring live music and always featuring great drinks for you to “take a break” from the craziness that has consumed our lives.

You’ll find inventive cocktails, beloved classics, flights, extensive single barrel selections, neat pours, beer, wine, and limited snacks too… basically – all the stuff that you’ll need to take a big breath of fresh air instead of sitting on your couch in front of Netflix (or god forbid, one of the news channels) consuming yourself with what’s going on around us.

It’s important to remember that life still exists – and that we can still get away, even if it’s for a few moments in the evening with a drink in your hand!
