Treo presents The One2 Lounge

Lounge featuring unique atmosphere, live music and late night menu

TREO Restaurant and Bar in Downtown Sylvania is proud to present our new music venue: The One2 Lounge. Fridays and Saturdays now feature live jazz, blues, soul, funk, classic R&B, bluegrass and just good old school sounds — complimented by a house collection of records of the same kind played throughout the week.

With its brilliant colors, rustic stained wood and earthly base tones, the One2’s atmosphere is both genuine to, and unique in, the Toledo area— and to TREO itself. Known for its traditional, yet contemporary cuisine and its gorgeous dining room, the TREO Restaurant & Bar ownership and management partners decided, ‘Let’s give people a place to hang out, even if all you wanted was a drink or a snack.’

TREO had steadily been building itself since opening in November of 2008, and just this fall earned a four-star review from the Toledo blade. With some good momentum, now just seemd like a the right time. “This space is just what we — TREO as a restaurant, our customers, our neighbors, our fellow downtown businesses and friends we haven‘t met yet — wanted; and maybe even needed without knowing it,” says Owner/Executive Chef Michael Fletcher (”Fletcher”).

Once a small bar and private banquet room, The One2 Lounge’s creation meant knocking down some old walls, building some new ones, seasonally bringing in art for sale by local talent, redressing and tweaking the already outstanding menu, and applying a whole lot of paint with a whole lot of love.

Now open Monday through Thursday until 10 pm, and Friday and Saturday until midnight, the redecorating and reinventing of TREO‘s bar area into The One2 Lounge represents the hard work and vision of Michael Fletcher, and management partners Kaetlyn Obey and Phillip Kaplan.
“It’s mostly Phil,” says Fletcher. “It’s ‘TEAM TREO,’” says Phil. “Well, we could not have accomplished this without each other. But I am in charge of its creative direction. So I can be blamed when it all goes awesome.”

Opening night, Feb. 25, features the Old West End Records Jazz Trio, fronted by OWE Records Label’s own Ben Langlois. With a standup bass by Steve Knurek, Alan Leizerman on drums, and Ben on piano and occasionally a “melodica”, they sound like the coolest department store in France in the 70s.

TREO and the One2 feature a true gem of a libation selection in the state of Ohio — with wines, beers and cocktails that can only be found within its walls. Perfect for a whole evening, a few drinks, a romantic date or a grand celebration, TREO is waiting on you.
