Where do you go when you’re looking for a place to hang out with friends and grab a drink? Columbus has a wide range of bars — from low key watering holes to fancy spots for handcrafted cocktails. In 2015, our readers picked The Pint House as their number one destination for drinks. This Short North hot spot opened in 2013, retrofitting an older brick building into a partially open-air beer garden that features dozens of beers on draft (including a lot of local pours) and a kitchen menu that keeps people coming back.

      Because the Pint House is popular? That’s kind of extreme. :P

    ‘Best Bar’ is a tough category — there are so many different kinds of bars, and different reasons to go! Also, there is the ambiance, draft list/specials, and clientele to take into account as well.
