At Japp’s, we specialize in handcrafted cocktails using the freshest ingredients, made in-house, and inspired by classic cocktails from the 1700s to the 1950s. Proprietor, Molly Wellmann, heads our team of trained mixologists, who are not only experts at making our delicious craft cocktails, but are well versed in the history of the drinks, and the spirits that go into them. At Japp’s, you’ll find many unique liquors, as we emphasize small, craft distillers in our cocktails, whenever possible. Our selection is extensive and was hand-picked by Molly for quality—not marketing!

What you won’t find at Japp’s are TVs! The environment at Japp’s was designed so that you can have the authentic Cincinnati cocktail experience. The architecture complements the 100+ year history of Japp’s as the Hair and Wig Store, and the unique history of Cincinnati’s Over-the-Rhine neighborhood– providing the ideal setting for you to enjoy drinks, as well as a conversation.

To find out more about our history, our friendly and talented mixologists, or to learn how to make some inspired and delicious cocktails, please look around the website. We hope it will convince you to come down and be a part of what makes Cincinnati great. We can’t wait to meet you!
