The addition of Bar Louie and Bar 145 will enhance the night-life aspect of the mixed-use retail development off I-75 in Miami Twp. The development’s restaurants close by midnight, Austin Landing officials have said. Bar Louie and Bar 145 are both known to operate from 11 a.m. to 2 a.m.
Bar 145 will have 36 taps, including several devoted to local beers, Fitzgerald said.
The Austin Landing pub joins two other bars that are under development across the region that will embrace the arcade-game trend — although Hole in the Wall in Dayton's Oregon District has been offering free arcade games for nearly three years. Canal Street Arcade & Deli is in the works in the former Canal Street music space in downtown Dayton, and "D20: A Bar with Characters" is under development in the Oak Creek Plaza in Kettering.
