Introducing the A&R Music Bar. A one-of-a-kind music bar featuring wall to wall memorabilia from PromoWest concerts over the last 25 years. A&R Music Bar showcases the poster art and photography of some of the country’s most well known artists. The bar is full service and features a huge outdoor patio, (5) 50” LCD flat screen TV’s and proudly serves Boston’s Gourmet Pizza.
Located at 391 Neil Avenue in the entertainment neighborhood of the Arena District, A&R Music Bar is located above the Basement rock club and next to The LC Pavilion. The name A&R has 2 distinct meanings held closely and in high regard to PromoWest and the company’s long standing history. The first being Artist and Repertoire. This is the division responsible for talent scouting and artistic development. For over 25 years, PromoWest Productions has been developing bands by bringing new and exciting acts as well as the industry’s biggest names to Columbus, Ohio. Several notable bands such as Fall Out Boy, The Killers and O.A.R started out playing our smaller venues and eventually ended up selling out our largest facility, The LC Outdoor Amphitheater.
The second part of the name is simple and straightforward. Art and Rock. This is who we are and what the Bar represents. PromoWest has been creating original artwork for their concerts for decades, and continues to do so today through their in-house design Department of artists, designers, photographers and interns. A&R Music Bar allows you the chance to relive some of the most memorable shows in Columbus, Ohio’s history, as well as catch a glimpse of the great things to come at each of our venues.
A&R Music Bar's large outdoor patio offers an exclusive space to lounge before shows at The LC Pavilion, Columbus Clippers games and other events in the Arena District. A&R Music Bar will also be used for live radio station broadcasts, band interviews, special appearances, meet & greets and live performances.
