Mt. Lookout is a neighborhood of Cincinnati, Ohio.

Mount Lookout, Ohio is one of the Eastern neighborhoods of Cincinnati, just northwest of Linwood and overlooking the Little Miami River valley. The neighborhood is named for the Mount Lookout Observatory, which moved to the neighborhood in 1873.[1]

Mount Lookout's lively business district is referred to as Mount Lookout Square. Local restaurants and bars fuel a vibrant nightlife, while specialty shops and small business serve daytime needs. Mount Lookout Tavern anchors the east end the Mount Lookout square and attracts college students from the several area universities (including the University of Cincinnati, Xavier University and Northern Kentucky University), as well as twenty and thirty-something working professionals. The City of Cincinnati recognizes Mount Lookout as the location of Ault Park although the nearby neighborhood of Hyde Park claims it belongs to them. Cardinal Pacelli School is located in the neighborhood.
