CINCINNATI – Howl at the Moon and Splitsville Luxury Lanes will open Aug. 26 inside the space previously occupied by Toby Keith’s at The Banks.

Piano bar Howl at the Moon, which opened its first location at Covington Landing on the Ohio River in 1990, is described as a “high-energy live music bar.” Splitsville will offer hand-tossed pizzas, burgers and gourmet appetizers alongside its bowling lanes.

“We’re excited to welcome Howl at the Moon home,” said Laura Griffin, an associate with Nicol Investment, owner of the Phase I development at The Banks, when the development was announced in April. “The dueling pianos and high-energy environment are legendary and will be a perfect fit on Second Street.” 

Both locations will occupy the 16,000-square-foot space left vacant by Toby Keith’s last year. The two entertainment destinations will have a maximum capacity of up to 800 people.

The new Howl at the Moon will be the company’s 18th location nationwide.

“You’ll come for the bowling, but you’ll come back for the food and live entertainment,” said Mark Gibson, partner in Splitsville Luxury Lanes. “Splitsville is different than any bowling concept you have ever seen. Along with the live entertainment from Howl at the Moon,  you will have to visit several times in order to experience all that we have to offer.”
