Located in Cincinnati’s new 21c Museum Hotel, Metropole offers a contemporary take on old world fireplace cooking techniques. Led by executive chef Michael Paley, the menu focuses on dishes cooked in a custom-built wood-burning fireplace. A showcase for the region’s sustainable farmers and producers, Metropole’s ever-changing menu features hearth roasted meats, fish and vegetables; grains; and housemade charcuterie. The bar and lounge are inviting places to explore the rotating selection of craft beers on tap, housemade cocktails, Bourbons and a smart selection of old and new world wines. Designed by architect Deborah Berke Partner Architects, the space highlights original mosaic tile floors, arched windows and architectural details, reestablishing the warmth and vitality of this historic gem.

PLEASE NOTE: The evening will benefit the Freestore Foodbank in the form of a canned food drive. Please bring two cans with you to donate on the night of the event. Two cans per person adds up to quite a bit for our events.
