6Featured Review- Julia G: The room was clean and the bed was very comfortable. (show more)

Pros: Only 2 block walk to Aronoff Center. The room was clean and the bed was very comfortable. Valet parking. The garage was full when I arrived, but with valet parking that wasn't a problem. Excellent hotel location.

Overall I had a very pleasant and comfortable stay at the Westin Cincinnati. This was my first stay at this hotel. The person at the registration desk was friendly and very helpful. She was knowledgeable about the area & answered all questions to my satisfaction.

Pros: Staff and accommodation outstanding

Cons: Didn't have WIFI in room, only lobby.

I took my husband to the hotel and Orchids for dinner. Everything about the hotel and dinner rated a 5.. only drawback was no cable connection for computers in the rooms... we have an IPad so we had to go to the lobby for connection... but everyone and everything else was very, very nice. Above and beyond!

6- Lori: The room was nice and the restaurant was excellent as well, with service and food. If in the area again, I will certainly stay at the Radisson. Thanks.

Venue Information

What's the best way to get to the Riverbend Music Center?

The Riverbend Music Center is easy to get to by car. It is situated just off Interstate I-275. From the North, take either I-71 or I-75 and merge onto the I-471 and cross the bridge into Northern Kentucky before merging onto the I-275 and crossing back into Ohio. You can take the 1st or 2nd exit for the Music Center. From the South, take the I-71 or I-75 north and merge onto the I-275 and then take the 1st or 2nd exit after crossing the bridge into Ohio.

If you plan on taking public transportation, there are very limited options, unfortunately. You should probably think about carpooling or taking a cab if you don't have your own car. There isn't much in the way of hotels immediately near the Riverbend Music Center as most are located in downtown Cincinnati.

How much are drinks/food in Riverbend Music Center?

There is a huge choice of food and drink from the various concessions around the music center. A bottle of water will cost around $5 but the venue does allow one bottle of unopened water to be brought in per person at events. The Riverbend Music Center also allows you to bring your own food, so you don't necessarily have to pay the concession prices while you're there.

Is there any parking?

There is ample parking at the venue for concerts and events.

How much does parking cost?

Parking is included in the cost of all tickets at the Riverbend Music Center.

What time do the doors normally open?

Gates generally open 60 to 90 minutes prior to all events unless otherwise noted.

Any other important information visitors should know?

Riverbend Music Center does allow you to bring in lawn chairs so that you can sit back and relax during your concert. If you do bring one, make sure that it is no more than 9 inches off the ground or you won't be able to bring it in. Don't forget that the venue is open-air, so be prepared and take an umbrella just in case.

Near the venue

What's the surrounding area like?

The Riverbend Music Center is about a 15 minute drive from downtown Cincinnati. It is part of the Old Coney Island amusement park complex. Nearby there is Belterra Park with a race track and a casino. The best choice of bars and restaurants is in downtown Cincinnati.

How can I spend a day in Cincinnati before heading to the concert?

Cincinnati Reds

Take in a game at the Great American Ballpark in downtown Cincinnati, home to baseball's oldest franchise, the Cincinnati Reds. The ballpark is in downtown and has a great view over the Ohio river. The average ticket price is around $22.

Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Gardens

A visit to the zoo is always a winner. Cincinnati zoo is the second oldest zoo in the entire United States and home to all sorts of different animals: from big cats to primates as well as amphibians, fish and reptiles. General admission starts at $16 if you buy online or a little more at the gate. Parking will add around $10.

Kenwood Towne Centre

If shopping is your thing, then head over to the Kenwood Towne Centre mall. Shop in over 180 specialty stores and the 2 department stores. Grab a bite to eat at the foodcourt and order your dessert at the Cheesecake Factory. The Kenwood Theater is located next door if you want to catch the latest movie.

Where are the best places to eat and drink near the Riverbend Music Center?

Market Buffet

Located within the Belterra Park gaming & entertainment center is the Market Buffet which serves up a range of cuisines. At under half a mile from the Riverbend Music Center, it is the ideal place to eat before the concert. The dinner buffet opens at 4pm and costs $19.95. There is a lot to choose from, from Brazilian rotisserie meats to fresh stone-baked pizza.

Eli's BBQ

If you really want to have a great choice of restaurants, you should head to downtown Cincinnati. Here you will discover Eli's BBQ that serves up fantastic hickory smoked ribs. Be brave and go for the full rack of ribs for $30. It is worth the journey downtown.

Gordo's Pub & Grill

If you're on the lookout for a good burger, good beer and somewhere to watch the game, you can't go wrong at Gordo's. Try one of their half pound burgers, treat yourself to a few craft beers, and then jump in a taxi for a 20 minute journey to the Riverbend after.

Is there anything else visitors to Cincinnati should know?

Jerry Springer was once the mayor of Cincinnati. We're not saying that affects your visit, but now you have a fun fact.

Pros: Once inside they really enjoyed the concerts.
Cons: No information posted for traffic or road closures. The drop off route was completely different, and the road was closed at 8pm with no through travel and no notification of where to pick up. Had to drive in circles until finally flagging someone down who told us we had to park at Bell Terra and by the time I had parked and called the kids to tell them where to meet they were told "no re-entry" and had to walk on the road from the Coney Island entrance to the Bell Terra parking lot.

Not one rude person - everyone very friendly and helpful. Easily one of the best concerts we have ever been to - it was worth the 8 hour drive!

We always love shows here! The bathrooms are large and clean. If you get a good spot on the lawn, it's a great park like atmosphere. The sound is good and the vending is enough to keep you fed and clothed in the latest swag. Decent beer choices. Will definitely be back!

Pros: Not oversold! Plenty of room to roam.
Cons: Traffic getting in and out is a nightmare! Some obstructed views if you sit on the lawn.

There is a lot of walking to get to but is so worth it. The music center is very spacious, has a very good set up for beverages, t-shirts, and plenty of clean bathrooms!
