One of the greatest rooms for dinner and a drink in a hotel – anywhere.
This grand French Art Deco masterpiece is a showstopper. Just walking in makes you feel like a movie star. The rare brazilian rosewood paneling and italian marble exudes elegance, and the ceiling murals in the Louis XV style feature various views of “recreation”. At the north end of the room is a slightly raised stage with an incredible Art Deco marble wall fountain. Atop the fountain is a ram’s head, with just a slight stream of water dropping through several basins to the pool at the floor.
It has been years since I have eaten here, but whenever I am in Cincinnati, I always stop in just to walk through….. and feel like a movie star.
