Neat historical restaurant and bar. See one of the places that in historical Hot Springs, made the casino scene and even survived through prohibition.

This is not just a Historic eatery! It's so much more! This is a location that was frequented by Al Capone, Mae West, Babe Ruth, and other names we recall from the past. It is said even Teddy Roosevelt sat at the bar here. Nightly entertainment includes the best local professional talent. Menu features "The Best Burger in Arkansas", but... More

Our purpose was visiting with new acquaintances, and the Ohio Club on Central Avenue in Hot Springs seemed the perfect spot. Atmosphere was conducive for visiting because no live music was playing. In fact, we met around 1:00 pm and practically had the entire place to ourselves. Staff was especially friendly, but our sandwiches were not as tasty as expected.... More

The best "Ohio Burger". Onion rings are the real deal. Service friendly and efficient. The best food in Hot Springs.

Stopped by for lunch a had a good burger and a local beer. Food was very good but the place just gives you a real sense of the past. The bartender was very friendly and gave a little history of the Ohio Club. It is a place that you can have a drink and just relax and enjoy yourself. There... More

We visited the Ohio Club, billed the oldest bar in AR, on two occasions. Both times we found the staff to be very friendly and capable. Also on both visits, we enjoyed live music and great drinks. The ambience is impressive, with notables like a roulette wheel converted into a glass topped drink table. The location is conveniently located across... More

We stopped in to check this place out and have a drink. It's got an amazing history and is pretty amazing to think about what has gone on in this place. Our waitress was absolutely outstanding, after getting our drinks she walked us around and told us a lot of the history and showed us various mementos on display. Later... More

Arkansas' oldest bar. Step back in history and have a drink where the likes of Al Capone, Lucky Luciano, Al Jolson, Mae West and a host of others have. We have won People Choice awards for our Hamburgers and our Reubens have been reported to be the best they have ever had. We keep our menu simple but high quality. We have live music 7 nights a week with Blues on Wednesday nights, Jazz on Thursday night and classic rock on the weekends. The Ohio Club Players are our house band and have been a Hot Springs favorite. Non smoking and open at 11am every day until 2am.
