The Top 10 Music Venues in Columbus in 2017
For two years running, our readers and editors have picked Ace of Cups as the new King (or Queen?) of the local music scene. Founded by local music maven Marcy Mays in 2011, Ace of Cups has become a go-to destination in the Old North neighborhood where you can always find local bands, small-to-medium-sized touring acts, and a plethora of unique monthly dance party nights like Laser Beam (new wave), Mall Bangs (80s pop), Heatwave (motown) and more.
Recently, Ace of Cups expanded their daytime offerings with an ongoing pop-up coffee shop from the folks at Johnny Coffee.
