Arts’ on the Ave is located in the burgeoning district of Brighton, downtown Cincinnati. We created an inspirational, art-themed bar that challenges patrons to ask “what is art?" The area has a long tradition of housing Cincinnati's working and starving artists. It is estimated that there are some 200 artists living in and around the Brighton and Mohawk areas.

We wanted to create an environment in this district that was not only a fun place to hang out and have a few specialty cocktails, but also a place for patrons to engage with artwork – and in some cases, learn a thing or two about how the art was made. Arts’ wants you to think about work in a way that's different than just walking through a museum while the security guard whispers "shhhhh!”
