We stopped in for a lunch while visiting the City of Hot Springs. There were three of us and we sat near historic bar which is a very neat to see. The three of us had a Ohio burger, Ruben and bowl of sausage sauerkraut. Each of them were delicious and well prepared. Bread and buns were fresh and cooked... More

We loved the history of this place and the mahogany bar. It's much smaller than I expected. We sat downstairs because the music was starting soon and we wanted to talk. Once it did start at 8 p.m., it was very hard to hear each other even though we were downstairs. My husband and a coworker had burgers. She didn't... More

We went to the Gangster Museum this morning (Fantastic, by the way!) and we decided to carry on the ambience by having lunch at the Ohio Club. This is the oldest bar in AR. If those walls could talk!! I'm sure all the gangsters passed through this neat place. It is very quaint and the food was great! I had... More

Food is average. Husband had burger where it was "all right". I had sausage and kraut which were good, but it was just sauteed and kind of salty. Waitress repeatedly kept asking if we needed anything more, implying when were we leaving so they could free the table for the next customers.

Visiting the Ohio Club is a must if you like charming places with a great historic atmosphere. It helps that whoever assembled the beer list is a genius...I've rarely seen restaurants with a list that is this small yet this uniformly excellent. You can't go wrong with any of the microbrews on tap. Also, I give them props for a... More

My friend is super into Al Capone and just absolutely had to go into this bar. It was a really cool place with a neat atmosphere. The bartender was very nice and made us drinks even though we didn't really know what we wanted. It was definitely one of our favorite parts of our stay in Hot Springs!

Historic Ohio Club is steeped in Rich History of Gangsters who bellied up to the Bar... Original Bar is worth seeing. Great Burgers!

The Ohio Club Players are so good and so much fun. Everyone really enjoys themselves and that really makes for a great experience. Try the new "Big Al Burger" it is the best burger I can ever remember eating.

This place is a must visit. There is lots of history here and a fun atmosphere. The beer list is excellent and the food is good. We had their version of a portobello mushroom burger which was different than any I have had before. Also great onion rings.

Description
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.
