Brewery District

Located just south of Columbus’s central business district, the Brewery District has a history stretching nearly 200 years. At the height of its success, five breweries were located in the area.

The new Arepazo Tapas Bar Grille is doing its own thing down in the Brewery District. Sure, it’s from the same good people who created a legendary joint in Pearl Alley, famous for empanadas and a cilantro sauce that people will spill blood over. But the new digs are a little glitzier. It’s more Frida […]
