Bragging rights are a big deal to us and there aren't any as old as us that keeps the nightlife going like we do. For over 100 years, The Ohio Club has been the place to be. It all started in 1905 as a bar and casino. The Ohio Club has been a stop off place for many a celebrity. Al Capone, Bugsy Segel, Bugs Moran, Lucky Luciano, just to name a few of the gangsters and it was also visited by many major league ball players since they had springs training in Hot Springs in the early 1900's. Babe Ruth was the most famous to visit. Because of all the gambling that went on in Hot Springs, many headliner talents were brought to Hot Springs. In 1915, Al Jolson performed at the Ohio Club. The mid 30's saw Mae West perform and an entire host of blues and jazz performers played though the 60's. Live entertainment is still the mainstay at the Ohio Club with music 7 nights a week.
