The Banks is getting a brand new sports bar this September.

Located between the Reds and Bengals stadium The Filson Queen City Kitchen & Bar will be a great spot to catch any game.

The 10,000 square foot space, designed by local designed firm Drawing Department, features a 200-piece interactive memorabilia collage curated by Cincinnati artist Jake Gerth, per a release from development group BRG Concepts.

BRG Concept describes The Filson as an "upscale sports bar" that will have outdoor seating and delicious food and drinks.

The drinks menu offers craft cocktails, local beers and “beertails.” For food, they’ve got “elevated sport bar dishes” featuring items like The Porkopolis Burger —topped with barbecue sauce, bacon, cheese, pickles and fried onions— and the FM Steak Sandwich —a filet mignon with sauteed mushrooms, bacon and swiss cheese.

Appetizer options include Court Street Nachos made with an option of chicken or beef topped with refried beans, cheese sauce, pico de gallo, pickles jalapeños, and sour cream.

The Filson is located at 25 E. Freedom Way, The Banks. Find more information at
