We visited twice during our stay and found the Ohio club to have some of the best hamburgers we have ever eaten. The history of the club is fascinating and the servers are wonderful. The Ohio Club Players are one of the best house bands I have seen in some time and are really worth seeing. An overall excellent experience... More

We stopped in for drinks at this place. The history and story of the Ohio Club is incredible. The backdrop on the bar is beautiful. Would have loved to live back in the s-day and seen it in its heyday. They have cool tshirts too. Must try the Key Lime Pie Martini! Yummy!

My husband and I were told from everyone around town to visit this bar- I'm so glad we did!!! There was a small cover due to the house band on weekends but was definitely worth it! The band was great! Our bartenders were Rob and Brittany and they were awesome!! You must sit at the bar and admire the awesome... More

This was a neat place to come eat. The history here is neat. There aren't many tables and you seat yourself. The food was good, but not over the top great.

If only the walls could talk. What an incredible history. Just the day before I was watching a History Channel show on a hidden speakeasy. I wonder if there's something hidden here? The bartender was very gracious and introduced me to the local bourbon distilled in Little Rock. Rocktown Bourbon.

I was in Hot Springs for two nights - I chose Ohio Club having seen it on my walk about in the afternoon. It looked like a pretty interesting hang out. The restaurant has a lovely ambience which is obvious from the moment you enter it: Old southern style with dimmed lights, a bar and a live band too. The... More

Family was visiting and we wanted to take them to an interesting local spot. We had not dined at the Ohio Club previously, but had heard a lot about it and decided to give it a try. Very interesting place - great history, awesome bar and the sandwiches were quite good. Both couples split one and glad we did, as... More

Historical and yet contemporary. We had a great experience on a Friday night. just the history of this bar was enough, but we had an awesome burger! A must if you visit Hot Springs!!

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.
