Downtown Cincinnati's bar scene is pretty generic. Unless you want to walk up to Neons in OTR, the downtown scene is dominated by cluby-type places (Bartini, Mynt, Cadillac Ranch, Righteous Room, Scene and their ilk.
You have to dig a little deeper for the hole-in-the-wall type places. I much prefer Arnold's, Madonna's, Tina's, In-Between, Head First, O'Malley's, etc to any of the places you mentioned.
