It’s been a busy year down at Newport on the Levee.

The multi-level entertainment center, which draws more than 3 million visitors annually to the south bank of the Ohio River, added six new tenants and a new look for one long-standing attraction.

Now in its 14th year, the Levee features 15 restaurants for an array of tastes from Brio Tuscan Grille to Claddagh Irish Pub to Tom+Chee. More than a dozen shops are on site such as Barnes & Noble, Deb Junior, & Plus and Tala’s Distant Treasures. Attractions range from the Newport Aquarium to AMC Theatres to the Funny Bone Comedy Club.

“There’s plenty to keep you busy,” says Christy Gloyd, Levee marketing director.

Axis Alley is the new name for the former Star Lanes, the boutique bowling alley. Under a new management company, the 16-lane bowling alley was completely renovated and the menu has been revamped. Axis Alley also includes the latest high-tech audiovisual equipment. Customers can watch their favorite sporting events and music videos on the giant projection screens over the lanes, making every seat the best seat in the house. On weekends, live music is featured with local and regional bands.

A wall now separates the lanes from the former Toro nightclub, now Redondo, a taqueria-style Mexican restaurant with a casual, eclectic dining environment. Tacos are the primary focus on the menu with a selection of unique ingredients that include fresh fish, crispy pork belly and lengua, as well as other authentic Mexican fare.

Redondo has a patio overlooking Third Street and offers a grab-and-go menu. “I’m addicted to their guacamole,” says Gloyd.

Wizardz Magic Theater opened in April featuring a 60-minute magic review in a 108-seat theater intimate enough to get the audience involved in the show. The theater is located inside the Levee’s main Gallery Building on the Riverwalk level.

If humor is your thing, you’ll feel right at home at Dick’s Last Resort, a national restaurant and bar chain known for its surly servers who dish plenty of sarcasm along with the food and drink orders in the former Tropicana space on Third Street.

“It’s a fun place for bachelor or bachelorette parties, birthdays and it’s great for tourists, before a ball game or a trip to the Aquarium,” says Gloyd. “It’s family friendly. They’re great with kids. It’s a neat experience.”

Also new to the Levee is the Carnevale Wine Bar, located near Art on the Levee across from the AMC Theatres ticket booth. Opened last spring by the owners of the La Vigna Estate Winery in Georgetown, Ohio, Carnevale is dedicated to showcasing the best of Ohio River valley wines.

“It’s a fun place for wine before dinner,” says Gloyd.

New on the shopping front is the Man Cave, a specialty store featuring fun decor, apparel and specialty grooming products for men, all selling for less than $20.

“It’s everything a guy would want for his man cave,” says Gloyd.

The owners are Michael Kelly and Russ Shirley, who also opened Kelley’s Kloset, a similar concept featuring women’s apparel and accessories also for under $20.

With all these new tenants, what’s more in store at the Levee?

“All I can say is, we continue to stay busy. There’s never a dull day in the management office,” says Gloyd.
