Located at 1410 Vine Street in Cincinnati’s historic Over the Rhine district, Alcove is a bar and restaurant that is warm, inviting and casual and features MadTree beers and house-made cocktails, sustainably-sourced wines and a range of seasonal farm-to-table offerings from chef Stephen Williams. Alcove is open for dinner seven days a week with lunch/brunch available Friday through Sunday.
Alcove’s main space features a large bar, lounge seating, dining areas and two intimate private dining rooms for small groups. Connected by expansive windows that run the length of the building, the main space opens to one of the city center’s rare outdoor spaces. Under the canopy of four large trees, Alcove’s outdoor patio offers shade and space for lounging and dining. It connects to a lively greenhouse bar filled with vibrant plants and two plant chandeliers. Herbs growing in this greenhouse are used in house-made cocktails.
Located at 1410 Vine Street, the building is in the heart of Cincinnati’s historic Over-The-Rhine district.
Throughout the project, many local historians reached out to MadTree to share stories, pictures and old newspaper articles about the nearly 150 year old building. Originally built in 1873 by Henry Wielert, the building was once one of the city’s largest German beer gardens, which included an expansive canvas tent that comprised what is also the parking lot behind the building. Carol Trosset, great-great granddaughter of Henry Wielert, sat down with several people from MadTree to share family pictures, stories, and historical artifacts and said she is “excited to see the building come back to life as a place where people connect over a great beer.”
The house band that played at Wielert’s went on to become the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra; George “Boss” Cox was in city politics during the late 1800s/early 1900s and was known to operate out of Wielert’s Cafe – legend says that he and others conceived the World Series there. Billboard Magazine, started in Cincinnati in 1894, was allegedly concepted on a napkin at Wielert’s.
