The venue, formerly known as the Champion City Sports Club, will be bringing lots of new fare to its line-up, including nitro coffee — cold brew coffee that has been infused with nitrogen to give it a creamy texture similar to traditional stouts like Guinness — and “al’cachinos,” alcohol-infused cafe drinks.

Renea Turner, president of the company, said the grand re-opening will be the first of a series of planned new bars opening under the Voodoo Moon name. Other locations are planned for Cleveland, Columbus and Cincinnati, with a Dayton location also slated to open this Christmas.
