Over-the-Rhine board game parlor The Rook confirmed today that is has closed. The bar, which opened in 2016, offered hundreds of games for guests to play, two floors of gaming space and a creative food and drink menu which included themed cocktails like the Pretty Pretty Princess and Clue-esque Mrs. Peacock Mojito. 

The bar is currently considering new owners to take over.

"Talking with several potential buyers, looking for more. We would love to see it reopen with same basic concept," reads a Facebook message from The Rook OTR's account, sent when we reached out for comment on the closure.

The bar is located at 1115 Vine St., next to Ensemble Theatre. We'll update this story if we hear anything else.
