Restaurant details
Good for: Special occasions
Dining options: Late Night
Description: 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.

After visiting the Gangster Museum, we learned of the history of the Ohio so had to eat there. The sign said "best burgers in Arkansas" and I have to agree. Beer choice was good. Food was good. The atmosphere of the restaurant is priceless. They lost our order so the food took too long but the manager made it right. We really weren't in a hurry so it was the perfect place to unwind from our tour and walk. Wish we had stayed to listen to the music.

The Ohio Club is over 100 years old, frequented back in the day by gangsters like Capone that came to gamble. On Wednesdays they have a Blues Jam with all kinds of great talent showing up to play. On Friday & Saturday evenings they have "The Ohio Club Players." The singer Dona Pettey engages the crowd and the band is awesome. The Ohio Club menu is versatile, but they were voted Best Burger in Arkansas. The burgers are awesome, my favorite being the Southwest burger. It's got some heat to it, but mmmmmm good. Mike Pettey is the owner and always makes you feel welcome. Prices are reasonable, and it is non smoking! They fill up fast, so come for dinner, stay for the music and dance the night away. I know by reading this review you can tell we love The Ohio Club!!!

If you want to go to a place with history, visit this bar. They have live music every night. The drinks are great and the people are even nicer. We went back both nights.

We went there for Sunday lunch and the food was excellent. The burgers are the best anywhere.....juicy, flavorful and very large and the service is great. The walls are covered with old pictures of the past (and some of the present). It's worth taking time to learn the history of the place. They have live entertainment in the evenings, usually starting at 9. Will go back.

The bar area has an amazing wood mantle that was imported, there are stories about gangsters visiting this location with bullet holes still visible. The burgers were large and very good and the staff was very friendly. Enjoyed the live entertainment that made the whole experience fantastic. Took pictures with Al Capone statuette outside...
