CINCINNATI -- The Banks will rock this Saturday with the grand opening of The Stretch, a new bar that will regularly feature music spun by local and national DJs.
The Stretch, a full-service bar that will offer wine, beer and cocktails, will open its doors at 4 p.m. with music by local DJ Fusemania, according to bar owner Four Entertainment Group (4EG).
The Stretch was originally slated to open in the summer. 4EG signed an agreement in February to fill the former Johnny Rockets space at 191 E. Freedom Way. Johnny Rockets closed in April 2015.
Founded in 2007, 4EG’s other businesses include Mount Adams Pavilion, Lachey’s, The Sandbar, Keystone Bar & Grill (with locations in Covington, Hyde Park and Clifton), Keystone's Mac Shack, Low Spark, The Righteous Room, The Lackman, Igby's and The St. Clair.
The Stretch joins Howl at the Moon and Splitsville Lanes , Taste of Belgium and Tervis, all of which have opened at the Banks since February. Other attractions slated to open at The Banks include BurgerFi, Tiger Dumpling and Pies & Pints.
Crave, a Maryland-based restaurant chain, closed its Banks location at 175 Joe Nuxhall Way in September.
4 p.m.-2 a.m. Saturday
