News from Downtown - 10.07.21
One of my favorite diners in Cincinnati will be hosting a grand opening tomorrow to celebrate its relocation. Hathaway’s Diner, which has been located inside Carew Tower for decades, has moved just steps away to a new, visible location along Fifth Street. Previously tucked away in a windowless space, the new location offers street-level visibility while still being located inside the historic Carew Tower. To celebrate the move, Hathaway’s will be providing live music from 5-7 p.m., with a ribbon cutting at 6 p.m. The diner will be open all day at the new location at 25 W. 5th Street starting at 8 a.m. Stop by for breakfast or lunch tomorrow and see the new space!
Also happening tomorrow night is the latest gallery opening at the 21c Museum Hotel, the first annual art exhibition dedicated to Indigenous People's Day. In collaboration with local arts organization Wave Pool and the Greater Cincinnati Native American Coalition, this exhibition showcases works by artists representing various cultural backgrounds. The exhibition will run October 8-10, and the opening reception happens tomorrow night from 6-9 p.m.
Live theater is back in full swing in Downtown Cincinnati, with a wide array of performances to see, from Shakespeare to musicals and more. Opening tomorrow night, catch a performance of the classic tale Romeo and Juliet at the Cincinnati Shakespeare Company, which runs through November 13. The latest show at the Ensemble Theatre is Pipeline, a powerful story about a high school teacher and her son, providing a commentary on life for young, Black men in America. And if you haven’t visited in awhile, Taft Theatre has a great lineup of comedy acts, kids programming and live music of all genres returning to the stage this year. It’s truly exciting to have visitors returning to these live shows, supporting these arts venues as well as surrounding retailers and restaurants while they’re here.
