Northside offers a variety of small, independent restaurants as unique as the neighborhood itself. Whether you're craving gourmet tacos, vegan chili or would prefer to belly up to the bar for trivia, Northside has an option for everyone.

For the widest selection of vegetarian, vegan and organic options in the city, Melt Eclectic Cafe can't be missed. Locals rave about the hot sandwiches and their Artichoke Melt is a must-try.

When you crave something a little more western, head over to Django's Western Taco for authentic beef, shrimp or chicken tacos served on hand-made corn tortillas. If you're feeling adventurous, give the Al Pastor a try. These tacos come loaded with pork, pineapple, mint and cilantro.

For the trivia buffs looking to test their skills, Northside Tavern offers trivia night in the back bar every Monday at 8 p.m. Head in a few minutes early for happy-hour specials on a wide range of local and craft beers. The bar doesn't serve food, so bring your favorite carry-out or homemade dish to fuel your brain while testing your trivia chops.


Northside began in the early 1820s as a small neighborhood with only a few residents, a handful of businesses and a tavern. A few years later, an influx of German immigrants brought new residents to this growing neighborhood. By the turn of the century, Northside was a business district where the wealthy citizens of Cincinnati could find an oasis of high-quality merchants, shops and manufacturing.

After World War II, the boom in industry throughout Cincinnati and the rise in highway construction drove residents away from Northside. Residents who once needed to live near shopping and dining could now commute instead. In the 1950s and '60s, Northside's popularity declined.

A few decades later, Northside regained popularity. Its lower home prices attracted first-time buyers, and young residents began to reinvigorate the neighborhood. Now, Northside has a rich German heritage as well as the vitality of new business and culture.


With all of its restaurants, shops, and businesses located within just a few city blocks, Northside provides a pedestrian-friendly option for its residents. Locals in Northside can check out books at the library, grab a latte, cash a check at the bank and browse handmade gifts, all on a morning walk.

Local bus lines coordinated through SORTA provide access to nearly all other areas of the city, and a short drive to Interstate 75 provides a quick 10-minute commute to downtown. The streets include bike lanes in most areas, and the Mill Creek Greenway Trail, located just south of the neighborhood's central streets, provides a convenient alternative for cyclists, runners and walkers.


Residents of Northside enjoy a cost of living comparable to the city average. A bus ride to the city center costs $1.75 and the cost of gas remains generally equal to the national average..

A one-bedroom apartment in Northside costs around $400 per month on the economical end, and $650-$700 per month in a freshly remodeled location.
