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

Cool vibe but the waitress was rude and the food mediocre. I personally did not care for the original burger but my aunt enjoyed hers. Will not return

Nice ambience. Bartender welcomed us on a slow, drizzly day. Classy pub interior with old fashioned ceiling, and gorgeous original bar. First song they played after being seated was "King of the Road," followed by Sinatra, Tony Bennett, others of that era. Really suited the surroundings. Service was good; they were happy to let you sample the beer choices, of... More

This was our first visit to The Ohio Club and we were impressed. We sat in the bar and had great service. We had the fresh guacamole dip which was very good and split The Ohio burger. Wow! It was cooked perfect. Would love to visit at night too, they have live music!! Cool place.

This is one of the coolest clubs to visit. The atmosphere is so cool. It gives you a touch of the history of Hot Springs, plus provides great entertainment, drinks and food. Fun place for night life.

Tiny, cozy but not a lot of room to sit at bar or dine. Upstairs sweet, but we were there on a popular Fri night. So, suggest you arrive early or make reservations. Lots of history....

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.
