2020 has been a very difficult year for local bars, but there has been a few silver linings. Changes to Ohio liquor laws (temporary at first, and now permanent) allow bars to sell cocktails-to-go for both carry out and delivery, and patio expansion into streets has allowed safer outdoor patronage during the pandemic.

While some bars have limited their hours of service to err on the side of caution, our readers and editors still took the time to narrow down their Top 20 spots to grab a drink. The full list can be found below:
