If hanging out in bars is your thing, then there’s a lot to choose from in Columbus. From neighborhood watering holes to upscale cocktail lounges, you can find something for everyone in just about every corner of the city.

This year, when asking our readers and editors about the best bars in Columbus, we narrowed down the final results into a Top 20 list instead of a Top 10 list to show off a little more variety and diversity than usual. The results include a mix of old and new, so no matter your preference, there’s likely something off your radar to discover for your next night out.
