Myrtle’s Punch House in Walnut Hills

Myrtle 10

Have you ever been to a punch bar? Me neither—or not until last weekend, that is, when I visited the recently opened Myrtle’s Punch House at 2733 Woodburn in Walnut Hills. Already the bar is drawing a crowd, as both floors were well-populated without feeling crowded. Wonderfully, there were no big-screen television screens (no TVs at all, actually), and the only music was the performance in the basement by a jazz quartet doing a low-volume mix of old-timey songs like “Night And Day” and “Sweet Georgia Brown.” Once again mixologist extraordinaire Molly Wellman has opened another drinking establishment that’s added character to Greater Cincinnati—or perhaps we should say that she’s help bring back some of the character that was originally there. I generally don’t like bars, but Myrtle’s had a nice, laid-back vibe to it, and age-wise there was a nice mix. I ended up meeting new people while I was there, the porter and punch I drank were par excellence, and visually Myrtle’s was splendiferous, inspiring me to snap a few photos. Hours are Mon – Wed 4pm to 1am, Thu – Sat 4pm to 2am, and Sun 4pm to midnight. The phone number for Myrtle’s is 513.479.6554
