Low class staff and thug bouncers! – Wasn't drinking at all and went there to celebrate 2 guys from gym who won a fight at Turfway park. yes we are an MMA gym, but I can assure you we don't cause trouble. We are all adults and very clean/nice guys.
One of our fighters who won a hard fought fight came to Jefferson hall to celebrate. We came in and the bouncers asked where he got the medal her was wearing....he explained and they seemed ok with him wearing it.
We alked straight to a table and didn't even get a drink when a very large bouncer (I guess to intimidate us)came over and grabbed Mike's arm and started saying "Come with me" and he started pulling him. Never said he was a bouncer and or even explained anything to us. He continued pulling Mike out as I followed asking who he was and what was going on. I thought he was taking outside to fight. When we reached outside he said leave, then we recognized he was a bouncer.
I can put my life on the fact Mike did nothing wrong. Even being dragged by his arm and not told by who or why...he remained suprised and even tempered.
I bounced for years and being 300lbs,fat,and having a badass temper doesn't qualify as a bouncer. The job is to not esculate a situation by explaining issues. If that doesn't work then by all means force may be taken. You need to at least say who you are and what happened. Especially to a bunch of sober adults who are asking awhy their friends is being manhandled out the door when he did nothing.
They probably didn't want a guy to wear a medal in a drunk testosterone enviroment like that place gets. Maybe because it could cause trouble. I understand that and could handle that reason. Tell him to take it off or explain it, but they handled to very badly. Chubby bouncers with no social skills don't cut it in a bar district like this. Things can be handled maturely until force is needed. They will have some story i am sure saying I am wrong. I would put my and life on the fact we/he did nothing and my story is the truth. To hell with this place and the way they treated us.
Great live music, atmopshere, and view! – They have live music Tues-Sun and DJ 513 on Monday nights. Most of the bands are local but also get traveling bands. The atmosphere is full of energy and draws a wide variety of people. They also have a great view of the Cincinnati Skyline from their outdoor patio. A full bar outside, just a step away and they offer a full food menu until 11pm. They have nightly specials that will let you have a good time even on a tight budget.
Part of the city's best-known entertainment district. – The Scene
With Main Street hopping every night of the week as fun-seekers visit the area's well-known art galleries, clubs, restaurants and bars, Jefferson Hall's is guaranteed to lift your spirits. Shoot pool, watch a Reds game, feed quarters into video golf or just sit back and enjoy the company. Meals aren't served, but you'll be happy nibbling on bar snacks as you down your favorite domestic and imported brews. Local and regional bands perform regularly.
Hot Chicks and Nice Peeps – I had a great time at "J Hall" as it is called by locals. In town for a meeting and trying to find the perfect mixture, Jefferson Hall was refreshing. Cool bartenders, great drinks, and the best women Cincinnati has to offer. Pretentious girl lovers need not apply, because this bar is comfortable from the start and guarantees a drunken finish.
J-Hall – Good place to hear live music...just hopin' the floor doesn't cave in!
