Black-Owned Cincinnati Restaurants and Shops to Support


From bakeries, barbecue and burger spots to boutiques boasting clothing, plants and candles, show your support for black members of the community by shopping, dining and sipping at these Cincinnati businesses.

This is obviously not a comprehensive list. In May, Cincinnati City Council member Jan-Michele Lemon Kearney also launched a new initiative: #CincyBuyBlackThursdays, asking locals to support black-owned businesses that have been impacted by COVID-19.

Kearney relaunched an online directory of black-owned Cincinnati businesses.

"We all must work together so that we not only survive, but thrive,” she said.

Businesses currently listed include professional services, childcare, therapists, beauty salons, photographers, law firms, bakeries, boutiques and more. You can ask to have your name, contact info, website and description listed in the directory at no charge.
