CINCINNATI -- A popular bar in Mt. Adams has closed to make way for a more modern concept.
aliveOne officially closed Tuesday after 12 years of operation at its Pavilion Street location.
Four Entertainment Group (4EG), the owner of the bar, says they are closing because the bar needs upgrades to be reconceptualized to a fresh, unique space. The new concept is set to open in fall of 2013, according to 4EG. They did not reveal further details about the new concept.
“We thrive on providing Cincinnatians with the best nightlife and entertainment destinations, and it is important to us to always stay ahead of the trends,” said 4EG managing partner Bob Deck. “We had many years of success with aliveOne, but it is time to make a change, raise the bar and create an innovative venue. We are thrilled to remain, along with our two other locations, in the Mount Adams neighborhood which has been so supportive to us over the years and introduce an exciting new space."
4EG says the manager of the bar gave their employees an option to look at employment among other franchises owned by the group. The bar had 15 employees, according to 4EG.
4EG operates multiple bar/restaurants in the Cincinnati area, including Keystone, The Lackman, Mt. Adams Pavilion, Tap & Go, The Stand, Sandbar, Righteous Room and Igby's.
