Pendleton is in the northeast corner of Cincinnati's central business district. The heart is just north of the Horseshoe Casino. While you may not realize it, it is not a part of Over-the-Rhine or Downtown. It is its own neighborhood, with its own identity. And the people who live there want to keep that identity as developers come in.
The owners of a popular bar in Over-the-Rhine are now working on opening another tavern in nearby Pendleton. Nation won’t be the first bar in the neighborhood, or even the first new business. But it is the first in a new wave of development.
