Howl at the Moon returns to town to fill another empty space at The Banks

Howl at the Moon will offer dueling pianos and bowling at The Banks this summer


A new concept from an old favorite will open this summer at The Banks in the former Toby Keith’s I Love This Bar and Grill space along Second Street. Howl at the Moon music bar is collaborating with Splitsville Luxury Lanes to bring an entertainment venue and bowling alley to downtown.
 
Howl at the Moon was founded by Jimmy Bernstein in Greater Cincinnati, with its first location at Covington Landing opening in 1990. The Banks' location will be the company’s 18th across the U.S. and its second in the area. It will also be its second Howl at the Moon/Splitsville location, with the other one located outside of Boston.

"This is like a homecoming for Howl at the Moon," says Maggie Kmiecik, digital marketing coordinator for Howl at the Moon. "The show has changed so much since Howl was originally in Cincinnati, and so has the city. It's exciting to be back."

Howl at the Moon started out as a dueling piano bar, with two piano players who interacted with the crowd while playing covers. Things have changed, and the Howl at the Moon of today is an ever-changing show with two grand pianos and a full-time band that plays hits from the 1970s, '80s, '90s and '00s as well as other dance tunes.
 
The 16,000-square-foot space will be renovated into a bowling alley with live music and dueling pianos. The venue will be more family-friendly and event-driven than before, with the ability to host private events too. There will also be a food menu highlighted by hand-tossed pizzas, burgers and gourmet appetizers.
