A new player burst onto the Northern Kentucky nightlife scene in December. Forum, a restaurant/ nightclub located at 322 Greenup Street in Covington offers high-quality food, cocktails and music in a hip, urban atmosphere. Like its ancient Roman namesake, Forum is an assembly place for all types of events, from lunches to happy hours to private parties. The downstairs features a large bar, main music stage and several high top and private seating areas. Upstairs patrons enjoy City Square views, a fireplace, televisions, comfortable seating and a balcony overlooking the music stage. The historic building has been newly remodeled with exposed brick walls, hardwood floors, and enhanced lighting. Forum is owned and operated by Anthony Ditomaso and minority owners Jesse Dalton, Titus Matthews, Brian Richmond, Tim Scanlon and Aaron Tucker. With friendships among the group spanning over 20 years, the Ditomaso and his team are looking forward entertaining guests through their love of good music, cocktails and food. "We work well together and get to spend our personal time with family and friends while entertaining our guests through our vision," says Titus Matthews, who also serves as Forum's Special Events Director. "We believe Forum's atmosphere and live music line-up set us apart. "Forum's stage is a unique place to play," Matthews continues. "We go beyond the local band scene. A number of our artists have national recording contracts and have made both tour and television appearances." While the drink menu features craft beers, eclectic cocktails and interesting wines, the food menu has more of an Italian/American influence. Ditomaso and Chef Steve Proctor have developed a variety of selections sure to please the lunch, dinner and late-night crowds. Build-your-own pastas, pizzas and sandwiches appear on the menu, in addition to bar-food favorites such as chicken wings, fried ravioli and Italian potato skins. The Italian-inspired entrees include long-held family recipes as well as more nouveau selections. Glo's sauce, a marinara sauce recipe passed down for three generations in the Ditomaso family, is featured prominently throughout the menu. "Our keys to success are to establish a high-quality experience when you walk in the door. Excellent food, timely service, interesting cocktails and our excellent atmosphere will ensure customers to return," says Matthews.

Over 25 years ago we opened a little restaurant in St. Paul Minnesota named Concourse 7. It quickly became apparent that burgers, beer, and sports were never going out of style. In 1984 we shifted our focus a little, invested in a bunch of big screen TV's and renamed the restaurant, Champps. At the time when everyone else in America was coming up with ways to downsize and think small, we were thinking bigger and better. Our philosophy is simple. Make burgers from scratch and pile them high. Fill our bar with TV's and turn the volume up for games. Bring in a DJ and have a party every night. It wasn't like anything else and the people loved it. That slightly irreverent attitude has become our calling card over the years, doing things the way we always have regardless of convention. We're still making fresh hand-crafted burgers, roasting our own turkey and chicken, slow-basting our falling-off-the-bone-tender ribs, and hiring the friendliest people to be part of our team. Why bother? Because bigger and better isn't just an attitude. It's a commitment to everyone who comes through our door. The party is still going strong today. The burgers are still huge, the beer is still cold and we're the best place to watch the game. No matter what part of the country you're in, you are sure to find a neighborhood Champps nearby.
