Each year, our readers cast their votes in our annual survey to decide the best people, places and things in Columbus. Some of the hottest opinions always boil down to food and drink with the “best restaurant” and “best bar” being at the top of the stack.

While there’s a lot of great options for places to drink, this year our readers picked Antiques on High as the number one bar in the city. After launching in late 2018, Antiques has quickly become a top destination for a night out. The bar was launched as a spin-off from Seventh Son Brewing, who wanted a second location but didn’t want to replicate the same experience. Antiques on High takes its name from the former antique store that was housed in the building, and customers can enjoy a mid-century modern decor while imbibing on sours from Seventh Son or cocktails from the menu.
