Friends, Family, Patrons and Fans of the Rib Room…

After 26 years at the same location, and many ‘make-overs’ throughout those years, I’ve made the decision to close Neumeier’s Rib Room & Beer Garden; the venue and property have recently been listed for sale.

 

I believe it’s time for someone with fresh ideas, and a forward vision, to ‘take the reigns’ on one of the coolest Live Music venues in the region. I plan to help whoever that may be, in whatever capacity, to insure a smooth transition and a successful ‘take-over’. If anyone knows someone who may be interested in a ‘one-of-a-kind’ venue/opportunity, please ask them to reach out to me, or our realtor, RH Ghan (479-478-6161) .

 

This decision will allow me to devote more time and shift more attention to my other Downtown establishment, Papa’s Pub & Pizzaria. I hope to continue selling Bar-B-Que one day, but for now, I ain’t in a hurry! Downtown Fort Smith has been my love and passion for many years, and I will continue to promote and support it as long as I’m around.

 

On a more exciting note, I’ve been invited to take part in a new, multi-genre, Fort Smith Music Festival coming to Riverfront Park this Summer. We’re still in the very early planning stages, but it will be a 3-day event, with 5 (+/-) acts on Friday and 8 (+/-) Saturday; we’ll have a Gospel-themed Sunday Brunch; “Praise God and Pass the Biscuits”.

 

In ending, I want to thank everyone for the support and patronage over the years at Neumeier’s.
