Corryville is a neighborhood in Cincinnati, Ohio, east of the University of Cincinnati, southeast of Clifton, south and west of Avondale, northwest of Walnut Hills, and north of Mount Auburn.

The original owners of part of the land were Jacob Burnet and William McMillan.[1] The neighborhood's namesake, William Corry, was an early mayor of Cincinnati and himself a prominent landowner in the Corryville area. German Americans largely settled the village of Corryville, moving north up the hillside from the congested Over-the-Rhine basin.[2] Corryville was annexed to the City of Cincinnati in 1870.[3]

Its most famous street is probably Short Vine, which contains several small shops, bars, adult stores, and the music venue Bogart's. The Corryville restaurant known as Mecklenburg's Garden is listed on the National Register of Historic Places;[4] it has operated since at least 1870.[5]
