On October 14th, 2018 we lost an amazing daughter, sister, wife, and friend, Danyelle Marie Echoles Byrd. Danyelle was a basketball star at Colerain High School in Cincinnati, OH before continuing her basketball career at the great Northern Kentucky University. One of Danyelle’s proudest accomplishments was winning a NCAA National Championship at NKU in 2008.


Danyelle had been living in Atlanta with her wife for three years when she suddenly suffered a fatal brain aneurism in her home at just 31-years-old. Anyone who knew Danyelle knew that she had a dream of one day opening her own bar; a dream that she shared with long time best friend, Keith Gwynn. Gwynn, along with his wife, Alison Gwynn, and Danyelle’s wife, Jessica Byrd, have banned together to make Danyelle’s dream a reality. Together the three have established Danyelle’s Bellevue Tavern (DBT), your favorite friendly neighborhood bar! Some of the sports memorabilia that you will see while visiting DBT is Danyelle’s basketball jerseys, pictures of the team, and even a ball signed by 2008 National Championship team. Come watch your favorite sports teams, listen to incredible live music, and try one of our DBT Originals at Danyelle’s Bellevue Tavern today!
