Home of Cincinnati's Annual Oyster Festival, The Washington Platform Saloon & Restaurant has been serving up New Orleans inspired food and drink for over 30 years.

While well-known as an oyster bar and for seafood, we have a large menu that encompasses much more, and rotating special menus to boot.

Gift cards are available, in any amount large or small (though we prefer large).

Jazz Every Weekend

Come check out some of the best live music in the city, every weekend on Friday and Saturday nights. The Washington Platform is the premier jazz club in downtown Cincinnati, hosting different artists every week. Some of the musicians may be recognized from Cincinnati's former Blue Wisp Jazz Club, while others are just coming up on the scene.

Refer to the event calendar for details about the night's music and artists, or subscribe to our newsletter for monthly listings.

We have a small cover charge of $5 for weekend jazz, unless otherwise noted.

Event Calendar

All events have been postponed in light of the COVID-19 developments. The Washington Platform will be closed to dine-in service, but will be serving curbside carryout. We are working on implementing a delivery service to further support both our patrons and our staff through these trying times.

Sadly, we can not sell booze, carryout or delivery. But we will drink one for you.
