CINCINNATI — If you're missing the feeling of being at Paul Brown Stadium for a Bengals game, you can do the next best thing and watch the game safely at Fountain Square with other fans.
3CDC has turned Fountain Square into a socially distanced outdoor bar so you can watch the game with other Bengals fans while staying healthy and safe.
Tables on Fountain Square will be spread out and sanitized for people to sit at, and the game will be projected on the Fifth-Third LED screen. Masks are required to walk around Fountain Square, but once you sit at a table, you can take your mask off.
Officials with 3CDC said they had success when they did something similar for Reds games, and they want to bring some level of normalcy back to sports fans.
"This is an effort to bring some life back into Fountain Square and Downtown," said Emily Stowe, 3CDC's event marketing manager. "That's been hard during COVID, but we found some good ways to activate the spaces and still remain safe."
The outdoor bar opens at 3 p.m. and kickoff is at 4:10 p.m.
