Fans of live music have quite a lot to choose from in Central Ohio. From arena-style stadiums to intimate mom-and-pop live music venues, there’s a lot of different ways to enjoy music throughout the city. 

This year, our readers and editors bumped the Newport Music Hall to the top of the list of best live music venues. Billed as the longest continually running rock club in the country, the Newport hosts over 150,000 guests per year. The club has been operated by PromoWest since 1984, which was acquired by AEG Presents earlier this year.
