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.

Oldest Bar in Arkansas and full of History

I love old bars and I'm glad I stopped in here. It's been around since the early 1900's and was one of the original illegal casinos back in the day. It's located directly across the street from the Bathhouse Row. It's small and narrow but there's two floors. Don't be shy, check out every inch of... read more

Imagining AL Capone walking in and around this very establishment is mind-boggling, if you are a history buff and love old mafia. Bartender was great and we had a great time sitting at the bar. Make sure to go upstairs and see the pictures and memorabilia. Oh! And buy a cool tshirt!

Quaint bar, full of history. Must stop by for a drink and sit at the bar, thinking about all the gangsters of the past who must have sat there.

This place isn't much to look at from the outside, but don't be put off. The bar is special enough to warrant sitting down for a beer just to read about its origins and look at the details in the wood. We had lunch upstairs, and after taking our order our server came back and offered a tour of the... More

Mike and Donna are amazing folks who run an awesome business. They made our weekend getaway one I will never forget with their hospitality. The food and drinks were delicious, the band was great and the building itself is beautiful. I will be back every year when I visit Hot Springs!

The Ohio Club is one of the best bars, clubs, lounges, venues, that I have been in a very long time. The atmosphere was wonderful and so were the people. Our bartender Tina, was fantastic and so was our waitress Jameson. The bar has such a good vibe and history, you can't help but feel like you have become part... More

So would have loved to dine and have a drink at this establishment. I looked in through the front door and took a photo with Al outside on the bench. Love the story of this place and was looking forward to visiting, however the Ohio Club is not friendly to families who are touring the area. Should be able to... More
