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 a Blues Jam 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.

My husband and I went here for lunch on our first day in Hot Sorings. He got a hamburger and I got a salad. Both were excellent. Service was great and server provided many interesting historical facts.

When one is at the Ohio Club, I figured one orders the Ohio Burger. It was a pretty simple, classic burger overall, but it was cooked perfectly (done but not at all dry) and the bun was what really put it over the top. Very fresh. Atmosphere was good, too, with all sorts of gangster memorabilia (because it was a... More

If you are a student of American history then this place is not to be missed. The decor is authentic and absolutely Americana at it's best. They have some great local brews as well as a huge selection of other adult beverages. Service was first rate. Don't miss this one if you are in town.

We had intended to eat here for lunch but ended up being in the area around dinner time instead. They have live music at night and it was incredibly loud. I don't see how the waitresses could even hear to take people's orders. I couldn't hear my own self talk. So we ended up ordering Reuben sandwiches to go to... More

Stopped by to have a drink and some snacks before going to gamble at Oaklawn. The server was very helpful and friendly. She gave us some history of all the gangsters who had passed through the doors before us. She also recommended the fried green beans. They were great, really enjoyed our time there.

The bug running across the bar kind of grossed me out but everything else was great. Food was great (Ohio burger & cheese & cracker plate), service was great & very friendly and lots of cool photos & history. Walked around reading most of the photos/notes, lots of gambling paraphernalia. Very interesting. Would like to go back at night for... More

The Ohio Club was a favorite pub of the town. There's live music every night, very good food, reasonable pricing, & it's smoke free! Lot's of history here too.

Oldest bar in continuous operation in Arkansas, open since 1905. Originally built as a casino, now serving libations and eatables. Once I read the historic panel outside the building I had to inside and have a beer at the massive carved wood bar. I took many pictures inside of all the gambling memorabilia.

We first had it on Friday afternoon, it wasn't very busy and we lucked out and got to sit at the roulette table! Cara ordered the Hawaiian burger and I had the Ohio harvest salad with grilled chicken, it comes with an orange liqueur dressing and a raspberry vinaigrette and the guy recommend mixing them together. It was hands down... More
