Magazine names OTR bar among best in America

OVER THE RHINE, OH (FOX19) - Japp's Since 1879 is named among Esquire magazine's "Top 18 Bars in America."

Owner Molly Wellmann is called the "Bar Queen of Cincinnati" in the article, penned by reporter David Wondrich.

The popular Main Street bar was opened in 2011 following its run as a wig and hair store opened by the Japp's family in 1879.

Esquire suggests trying Japp's Cool Jules cocktail – a creation by veteran bartender Bryan Harris. The mag also gives a shout out to the monthly Tiki Night.

Wellmann also owns Old Kentucky Bourbon Bar in Covington, Neons in OTR and Myrtle's Punch House in Walnut Hills. She recently bought into restaurants Melt and Bottle and Basket.
