There’s a brand new hotspot in Cincinnati, and it’s located in the booming Walnut Hills: welcome to Comfort Station!
Created by Sundry and Vice owner Stuart King, Comfort Station is housed in a building that sat vacant for 90 years. Similar to Sundry and Vice, the cocktails at Comfort Station are innovative and fresh.
I attended the ribbon cutting last Friday and it was the perfect celebration for this new Walnut Hills destination. You could feel the excitement in the air and the setup of the bar is conducive to mingling and socializing.
The outdoor space was one of my favorite parts to explore at Comfort Station.
It’s spacious and there are tons of different seating options to cozy up and hang out with friends. I loved this swinging bench on the back patio and the rope detailing is even more impressive in person!
Another outdoor area I’m sure will be popular is this lounge spot that looks very tempting for a nap and a cocktail. I love that all the different areas at Comfort Station encourage people to hang out and stay for a while.
The drinks offered during the opening were so pretty that I took about 20 pictures of them!
The summer wine is made of cabernet, sweet vermouth, grapefruit tonic, lemon peel and a sprig of thyme.
Another drink is the chartreuse swizzle which includes green and yellow chartreuse, pineapple juice and mint. The color was so pretty and vibrant!
There was also a cantaloupe drink mixed with rum that was equally as pretty as the rest. The drink lineup offered was seriously impressive!
The herbs used for the cocktails are actually grown outside, making them as fresh as possible.
Comfort Station will feature two separate areas, playing off the theme of light and dark. The upstairs area of the bar features more light, especially with the pretty skylight that pours in lots of natural light (which I love!).
Downstairs will be the “darker” area, with different cocktail offerings and a more intimate setting. It will open in the future.
