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.

A great find

Loved the history and the architecture of this place. The Berry Nutty Salad with the Honey Orange Liquior dressing was the best salad I have ever eaten hands down. Will def be back

The Ohio Club is The stop for tourists seeking out fantastic burgers, and live music 7 nites a week. The history behind this bar is worth checking out in the fabled town of gangsters and healing waters, and its right on the main drag, Central Avenue. The crowd is comprised of curious tourists and lively locals; a very friendly place... More

Exquisite preservation of 1905 bar. A feast for the eyes, as well as, the palate, with their exceptionally delicious cheese burgers!

The Ohio Club is a former gambling establishment and bar frequented by gangsters. They have a cool bar and great pictures on the walls. We had drinks and an appetizer. The drinks were good and the cheese and sausage dip was delicious. A live jazz band was playing while we were there which had a good following; the bar got... More

Check the wall for the winning picture of DORN, find a spot and enjoy the people and the music. Remeber a rodeo bar after the wild horse race, the singers at Tooties in Nashville or the name of the winning horse you bet on at Oaklawn and then had a cocktail. The OHIO CLUB will bring those memories back as... More

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
