CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

With the 2015 All-Star Game looming, the Cincinnati Reds showcased new amenities throughout Great American Ball Park before Opening Day this year.

Retail Row: Fans will immediately see replica storefronts as they walk into Great American Ball Park's main entrance. The 'row' stretches to Gapper's Alley, replacing the kiosk pods. The storefronts will feature the Season Ticket Holder Center, Split the Pot and the Reds Heads Kids Club.

Concession Stands: Concession stands in the 100 level will be remodeled to replicate storefronts. Reds' Chief Operating Officer, Phil Castellini said fans should feel like they are walking down Main St.

Handlebar at the Riverfront Club: The Riverfront Club will now feature the Handlebar. The Handlebar will be an inside bar with all you can eat and drink. The glass has been removed on the patio of the Riverfront Club so fans will be able to experience the sights and sounds of the game. Fans with a ticket will be able to enter the Handlebar for an additional $65. Fans without a ticket can enter the Handlebar for $85.

Pampers Nursing Suite built by Fischer Homes: A mother's nursing area has been built in the suite level on the first base side. The 'Mommy Zone' will feature rocking chairs, changing tables, love seats, a restroom and a sink. Officials said the idea stemmed from requests of mothers asking for chairs in the woman's bathroom.

Great American Insurance signs: LED lights have replaced the neon lights on the three signs around the ballpark: on top of the main scoreboard in left field, Crosley Terrace and overlooking Mehring Way outside the stadium near right field.

Ole Smoky Moonshine Party Barn: Will be next to Mr. Red's Smokehouse near the Fan Zone. The party barn will be accessible for groups.

Frybox: A new gourmet french fry concession stand located on the first base side near the Mr. Red's Smokehouse.

Bootleggers Bar: Located on the first base concourse. The bar will be air-conditioned with a speakeasy feel, featuring tile floors. Officials hope the bar will ease congestion on the first base concourse.

The upgrades inside the ballpark will cost about $5 million. Castellini said the Reds are paying the bill and will not cost taxpayers any money.
