CINCINNATI — An elevated sports bar makes its way to The Banks, and this one is conveniently located between Great American Ball Park and Paycor Stadium.
Located across from the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center, Filson Queen City Kitchen & Bar brings upscale design and menu to the concept of a sports bar.
Scheduled to open on September 8, the restaurant offers a bit of everything on its menu, making it the perfect place to bring all your friends and family. There is a wide variety of craft cocktails, local beers, in-flight beers as well as “beertails”.
The menu, which follows with that elevated sports bar vibe, features dishes like the FM Steak Sandwich (marinated filet mignon, sautéed mushrooms, bacon, Swiss cheese and crispy onions), the Porkopolis Burger (served with homemade barbecue sauce, bacon, cheddar cheese, pickle and fried onions) and Pizza Nola (classic Creole tomato sauce, andouille sausage, shrimp and roasted peppers).
Besides food and drink, the 10,000 square foot restaurant has indoor and outdoor seating.
In terms of atmosphere, the restaurant is elegantly designed – provided by The Drawing Department. Cincinnati’s rich history is showcased in a variety of ways at the restaurant, but it culminates in a 200-piece interactive memorabilia collage. The collage was curated by local art lover Jake Gerth.
“We have been involved with The Banks project since its initial construction,” said JR Anderson, vice president of development for Jeffrey R. Anderson Real Estate. “And The Filson is a concept we’ve wanted to bring to the region for a long time. We’ve seen the momentum build as each new phase of The Banks has been completed, and we think The Filson is a great addition. .to the existing downtown Cincinnati restaurant community.”
The restaurant is backed by BRG Concepts, which owns several restaurants in South Florida. It is the restaurant group’s first company with a location in Ohio.
