Old becomes new again at Newport on the Levee

Newport, KY – January 20, 2015 – Transformations at Newport on the Levee (NOTL) are showing no sign of slowing down. In November 2014, NOTL broke ground on an $80M mixed-use development that is set to open in 2016. Today NOTL management has announced even more major changes at the property.

On January 17th, NOTL management reclaimed the space occupied by Claddagh Irish Pub, resulting in the closure of the restaurant. This change is a very positive step for the property because it will make way for the remodel and expansion of longtime NOTL tenant, Bar Louie.

Beginning in early February, Bar Louie will start construction on a beautiful, new 1,800 sq. ft. patio, which will boast a spectacular view of the Ohio River and downtown Cincinnati skyline. The patio will also feature an outside bar area.  In addition to the patio, Bar Louie will also be adding a 1,000 sq. ft. private dining area, as well as renovate the venue’s main bar.

In addition to the construction projects, Bar Louie has also extended their lease at NOTL for another five years.

“We want to provide a quality experience to our guests and we hope that they will enjoy our new amenities,” stated Andrew Gallo, General Manager, Bar Louie.

The venue will continue to operate as usual during the renovation and expansion process. Construction is scheduled to be completed by early April.
