Columbus Bars

Will be in Columbus, OH for a wedding 7/11-13. Staying at the Hotel Blackwell. I'm the "planner" of the group but have never been to Columbus. All I know about Columbus is its the home of Ohio State and Jeni's ice cream. The rehearsal dinner is Friday night at the Buckeye Hall of Fame...where is the closest "nightlife" or "bar district"...Thanks for your help!

You will want to head over to the Short North/Arena District. From your restaurant, just take 5th or King Avenues east to High street, turn right on High, and the Short North district will be lit up with arched lighted signs along High Street. About a 5 minute drive. The Arena district will be the same way down High, past the 670 "cap", make a right onto any of those streets like Swan, Vine. Those bars are about a block off the west side of High.

If you want to map quest an address, map quest Burgandy Room for Short North, Spice Bar for Arena, those will put you in the thick of things.

I agree with Binti; the Arena District and Short North area are your best bet. Lots of places to go from low end to high end. Enjoy your time here!
