The Backstage Entertainment District is on a roll lately with all the newly announced business openings (like the J. Hamman Prime steakhouse, for example).

Well you can add another to the list as Obscura will open at the southwest corner of Seventh and Walnut streets.

The high-end cocktail lounge will take the place of the former optical shop that has sat vacant since its closing.

The new establishment (check out their website) will reportedly have seating for 80 people and employ 40.

It is expected to open within the coming months, and we’re excited that it’s yet another destination located directly on the phase one route of the Cincinnati Streetcar.
