Hyde Park Square

Charming Hyde Park Square: Your Trendy Shopping and Dining Oasis

Cincinnati is full of inviting neighborhoods. One of the most popular is Hyde Park on the city’s eastern side. Established in 1892 by a group of wealthy businessmen, this charming area reminds many of a small Parisian village and was named one of America’s best neighborhoods by Forbes Magazine in 2010.

One of the reasons for this accolade is Hyde Park Square, a two-block section known for its abundance of fun eateries and unique shops.

So what exactly is there to do “on the Square?”


No less than 14 restaurants and cafes offer a wide range of dining options, from hearty homestyle cooking at Echo Restaurant to sushi and tacos at E+O Kitchen.

Ready to relax after a long day at the office? Then check out Unwind, a rustic, upscale wine bar with a fireplace and bottles of wine in every nook and cranny. Looking for a cozy coffee shop with live music? Awakenings is just the spot and is open seven days a week.

No matter what your food tastes, there is a restaurant for you in Hyde Square Park.
