Live Music-Bowling Concept Moving Into Toby Keith’s Old Space
  • Cincinnati, OH

Howl at the Moon occupied Covington space in the 90s

CINCINNATI —The old Toby Keith’s bar is getting new life at the Banks.

It was announced Monday that the downtown space that’s been unoccupied since the bar closed last year will be home to a music venue-bowling hybrid.

The space will be filled with Howl at the Moon, a dueling-piano bar that once occupied a space at the Covington Landing, combined with Splitsville Luxury Lanes.

According to a release, Howl at the Moon has 17 other locations nationwide.

“The dueling pianos and high-energy environment are legendary and will be a perfect fit on Second Street. The combination really complements both the new venues we’ve announced recently and the long-time favorites at The Banks,” said Laura Griffin, an associate with Nicol Investment, owner of the Phase I development at The Banks.

A partner with Splitsville Luxury Lanes described the bowling alley part as a concept that will be different for most.

“Our layout and design create unique lines of sight for customers and dynamic energy and interaction within the establishment,” said Mark Gibson with Splitsville Luxury Lanes.

Since December, The Banks has announced several other new tenants: Taste of Belgium and Pies & Pints in Phase II and The Stretch from 4EG, drinkware retailer Tervis and gourmet burger restaurant BurgerFi in Phase I.

Howl at the Moon and Splitsville Luxury Lanes are expected to open mid-summer.
