Arthur Bryan III was the long time owner of the Red Head Piano Bar. A very popular late night spot in the River North neighborhood.  The Red Head opened in 1993 and soon thereafter Art Bryan became manager, investor, and within five years he and his brothers took ownership of the club.  Art had managed other highly rated Chicago entertainment and dining establishments; he had a long held passion for serving patrons at the bar and showing off his latest wine.   

Over the years celebrities would show up and take a seat at the piano. Guest pianists included: Billy Joel, Seth MacFarlane, and Dennis Quaid.

Art Bryan lived in River North near his club; he grew up in the Chicago area and attended New Trier High School.
