Our friends at Yelp, www.yelp.com/cincinnati-oh have shared with us a review of The Mockbee in Clifton. The Yelp reviewer has given it 5 stars so you might want to try to get there for their next event.
The Mockbee is located at 603 W McMicken Ave
Cincinnati , OH 45214 .
A review of the Mockbee is a review of the space itself. A wide variety of events are held here and through out the last 8 years I've seen punk shows, peformance art pieces, an independent erotica film festival (don't ask), fundraisers of various sorts, tons of indie music festivals, burlesque shows, poetry readings....everything one can imagine. It's probably best known for housing the SSNOVA shows.
The owners do not have a liquor license so a special event license must be purchased for each event. The space is extremely cool to walk though once serving as a warehouse for barrels full of beer from the the various breweries around the area.
The Mockbee bills itself as the largest alternative space in Cincinnati and I haven't found another space like it in the area. The place does suffer from lack of parking and many have difficulty locating it on Central. I would love to see the Mockbee used more often and promoted on a more consistent basis. If you've never been, I highly suggest you go just to see the space and walk around to locate all the crooks and corners that exist at the Mockbee. This is one of the cities coolest buildings and treasures.
