Brothers Bar & Grill enters Cincinnati market with Newport location

With 17 locations across the Midwest including Columbus and Indianapolis, it was only a matter of time before popular Brothers Bar & Grill entered the Cincinnati market.  Their newest location is at Newport on the Levee.  

Founded in 1990,  Brothers Bar & Grill is known for its entertaining restaurant/bar atmosphere that caters to a younger demographic between the ages of 21 and 35 years.  As a result, many of Brothers' locations are in cities and towns with a strong college population like La Crosse, WI where Brothers was founded and where the University of Wisconsin has a satellite campus.

What sets Brothers apart from other restaurants/bars is their unique and innovative approach to operating the business in addition to their "over-the-top special events."  In 2002, Brothers was given the award for "Best Independent Beverage Program in America" at the Cheers Beverage Conference, and received the "Innovator of the Year" award at the Nightclub and Bar Tradeshow in 2004.

Located on the exterior Riverwalk Level of Newport on the Levee, Brothers Bar & Grill will boast a sports bar atmosphere with sweeping views of downtown Cincinnati and the Ohio River and feature live music, special events, and outdoor seating complete with fire pit.

Brothers Bar & Grill is open daily from 11am to 2:30am.
