There’s a new spin on ice cream in the Queen City and it’s more delicious than ever. Learn more about these tasty treats.

Bold Face Dairy Bar is a new soft serve ice cream spot in East Price Hill.

Summer is just around the corner and so are your cravings for ice cream. That’s when it’s time to consider stopping by the Bold Face Dairy Bar, a “creamy whip” style, walk-up, soft serve ice cream shop in the East Price Hill neighborhood.

Founded by the Grear and Harkins families, the Bold Face Dairy Bar was inspired by a love for ice cream and a love for the neighborhood. Partner Rhett Harkins says the two families, who have 11 total members, have been residents in the neighborhood for over 10 years.

“The inspiration behind the Bold Face Dairy Bar is two fold melded into the desire to create a quality and accessible retail business to employ and serve the diversity of our neighbors with something that would ‘sweetin life’ just a little bit and hopefully become a sweet part of childhood memories and family traditions,” says Harkins.

There are unique items available off the menu at the Bold Face Dairy Bar including a bourbon barrel stout milkshake, lavender vanilla cup, classic twist cone, and the Bold Face Cone, all of which are rising favorites among customers, Harkins says.

According to Harkins the ice cream from the Bold Face Dairy Bar is some of the creamiest soft serve in the Queen City. “The Bold Face Dairy Bar Company has a smaller, curated menu of treats than a traditional cream whip, with some unique artisan flavoring combos that cannot be found at any other local cream whips,” Harkins adds.

To expand its unique offerings, the Bold Face Dairy Bar recently launched a partnership with BLOC Coffee Co. for fresh drawn ice cream and fresh pulled espresso Affogators available on Fridays and Saturdays.

“We are also looking forward to launching our monthly special sundae program,” Harkins says. “We’re opening with a ‘Dirty Martini’ sundae that is awesome.”
