KETTERING, Ohio —

A new business in Ohio is throwing the traditional idea of a bar out of the window. 

Gone will be the televisions.

Board games will be on tap for patrons.

It's called D20: A Bar with Charactersand will offer board games and table-top gaming to accompany drinks. It is planned to open in Kettering, Ohio this fall.

“This will be very different from any other bar in Dayton,” said Andrew Sparks, co-founder of D20 along with Christine Cooper.

The bar will not have any televisions, but will have more than 200 board games and table-top games available, ranging from Candyland to Risk to Axis & Allies, Sparks said. The intent is to create “almost a coffee-shop vibe,” he said. The D20 name refers to a 20-sided die — or dice — used in some role-playing games.

The 2,500-square-foot space, which previously housed a women’s fitness center and a cellphone store, will have occupancy for 60 to 65.

D20 will feature 20 beer taps as well as craft cocktails and wines.
