NATION KITCHEN & BAR

The ultimate destination for sports fans

Nation Kitchen and Bar - AGAR

THE CHALLENGE

Nation Kitchen & Bar was approached by BetMGM to bring the popular local restaurant chain to The Banks Cincinnati in order to create a new hybrid concept, nestled between the city’s national sports stadiums. The challenge was to create the optimal environment for sports fans while also celebrating the heritage of the Nation brand and the city of Cincinnati.

The new flagship experience created the ultimate destination for sports fans, features multiple TVs, optimal lighting, surround sound, and premiere sports programming with upgraded packages, so fans never have to miss a game.

The atmosphere evokes elevated hospitality at every touchpoint, from leather-topped bars to the brand’s signature hatchet wall, complete with dramatic backlit lighting. The focal point of the restaurant though is the wall mural featuring Cincinnati sports legends, past and present, bellied up to the bar. The space features functional garage doors to take full advantage of the warmer baseball season, with Great American Ballpark just steps away from the restaurant. With a variety of seating types and a mouth-watering menu, this new destination has something for everyone.
