Catherine Manabat is the Co-Founder and Owner/Operator of HomeMakers Bar.  A Los Angeles native, Catherine has lovingly called Cincinnati home for 11 years. She has made it a priority to be part of the growing bar culture and community of Cincinnati. She was on the opening bar team at 21c and ran the bar program from 2013- 2015. While at 21c she started a monthly cocktail class series entitled Sunday School that ran for 2 ½ years. It consistently sold out and became a platform for her to share her passion to learn about cocktails and create an environment that made cocktails fun and approachable for everyone. Sunday School has been featured in Cincinnati Magazine, City Beat, and WCPO. She then became the Southern Ohio Sales Manager for Watershed Distillery-a craft distillery based out of Columbus, Ohio.  The position  allowed her to create partnerships and collaborations with non-profits, restaurants, bars, community influencers, and the bar community. She has established herself as one of the top beverage consultants locally and regionally offering product education, cocktail classes, and marketing strategies. She is one of the founding members of Cincinnati Cock FIght.

Catherine and Julia opened HomeMakers Bar in June of 2019 and it is quickly becoming a go-to favorite in the neighborhood. HomeMakers Bar is the slightly retro, mostly modern craft cocktail bar & bottle shop with food. . HomeMakers Bar serves up classic and modern cocktails focusing on aperitifs, digestif and bitters. It is a space that celebrates makers and the community that helps them thrive, it is a place that encourages you to defy conventions. Catherine & Julia, along with their team, hope to grow HomeMakers Bar as a unique voice in the Cincinnati community.
