Low Spark, the new Over-the-Rhine bar from 4EG, is a neighborhood bar with a ’70s vibe and a tropical aquarium as the centerpiece.
Located at 15 W. 14th St. at Republic Street, Low Spark was named after Traffic’s 1971 song, “The Low Spark of High Heeled Boys.”
Orange high-back chairs, checkered tile, red leather padded walls and beveled mirrors create a ’70s feel in the space, which seats 39 (capacity is 46). The original tin ceilings have been painted gold. A vinyl record player broadcasts eclectic tunes
Patrons can consume drinks that include a half-dozen specialty cocktails, four wines and a dozen beers on tap. Of the cocktails, two are ’70s drinks: There’s a lighter version of a Grasshopper, with cacao milk standing in for heavy cream; and a classic preparation of a Harvey Wallbanger. A tiki drink, Tropic Thunder, is also among the offerings.
