We Found the Best Bloody Mary in Cincinnati!

On Sunday, October 20th, Igby’s rallied together bartenders throughout Cincinnati to thank them for their hard work in making the Cincinnati food and beverage scene so extraordinary.


During the Bartenders’ Brunch, Igby’s hosted a competition for the best Bloody Mary in Cincinnati, and we were shocked by the exceptional turnout. We’d like to extend a heartfelt thanks to the bartenders at Igby’s, Via Vite, Sotto, Oddfellows, and Nada. The competition was tough, but ultimately, the crowd chose Oddfellows as the “Best Bloody” in Cincinnati!

We also want to thank the local restaurants for the effort they put into preparing and donating food to the Bartenders’ Brunch. Without them, we wouldn’t have been able to host such a memorable event! Take a peek at their delicious food below, then give them a like or a follow… or stop in and try their food for yourself!


Nada has been a staple in Cincinnati for some time. If you haven’t been there yet, we suggest you run, not walk there. You can drool over their food on Instagram @nadacincy.
