New tenants announced for The Banks


CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - The development team of the Banks project, Carter and the Dawson Company, have announced four more tenants have signed leases.

The tenants are:



• Holy Grail Tavern & Grille – a sports bar concept that will offer the ability to watch almost any sporting event live and munch on their traditional tavern fare including their signature Reubon Wontons, award winning wings, and Blueberry Grail Ale.

• Huey's 24/7 Diner – a diner open round-the-clock that will offer traditional diner fare along with Big Easy favorites such as shrimp etouffee, jambalaya and red beans & rice.

• La Crepe Nanou – a romantic neighborhood bistro that will offer traditional French fare including signature crepes, cheese fondue, salads and moules fritas.

• Wine Loft – An upscale wine bar offering 70 wines by the glass and over 250 wines by the bottle. The Wine Loft also offers spirits, beers, and international cuisine.

When combined with Toby Keith's I Love This Bar & Grill, the leased space at The Banks first phase now totals close to 32,000 square feet which means approximately a third of the first phase retail space is leased.

"These announcements further our plan to create a fun place that's always happening and offers something for everyone," said Trent Germano, The Banks' developer. "Each concept brings a unique experience that when combined will create a dynamic, entertaining and fun place to be."

Three of the concepts – Huey's, La Crepe Nanou and Wine Loft – are owned and operated by the Doyle Restaurant Group which is based in Louisiana.

The Holy Grail is locally owned by the same group that owns and operates Holy Grails in Corryville and Delhi. The Banks' Holy Grail concept will be an upscale bar centered around the ability to watch almost any live sporting event.

"As lifelong residents of Cincinnati, we are excited to bring the first sports bar to the Banks Development and downtown and sit directly across from the entrance to Great American Ballpark," said Jim Moehring a partner in the Holy Grail ownership group.
