A general question for Columbus residents: When was the last time you went to the Brewery District? And why?
Back in the early ’90s, this German Village neighbor could drink any other Columbus bar district under the table. But since the rise of Park Street and the Short North, destination drinkers have, for the most part, deserted the Brewery District.
The Brewery District seems on the cusp of returning to its former glory, especially now that Shadowbox Cabaret has announced plans to move into the South High Street property that formerly was Brewmasters Gate. Outland, a long-standing dance club that’s the center of Columbus’s seemingly immortal goth-industrial scene, also announced plans last spring to relocate to the Brewery District, and Victory’s, a once-popular sports bar that is temporarily closed, is set to reopen, according to McConville.
