    Piece of NYC in Columbus
    Columbus is a GREAT gay city and much of it is owed to Union, Axis and Havana. The guys that did this also helped make this neighborhood awesome and GAY. I love the food. The space is hot and it is always packed. The service used to be ok but is amazing now. The new managers are the best - way to go Sammy Jo!!

    Union is the place to be.
    I have been going to Union for years. Loved the old space, but really love the new location. You can see anyone and everyone at Union and everyone feels so comfortable. I take all my out of town friends here for great food, great social atmosphere, and friendly staff. I have only had great experiences the 11 plus years I have been going to Union.

    The epicenter of gay nightlife
    No gay night out in Columbus can be listed without mentioning Union. The owners did a huge upgrade in the location, food, staff and image when they moved it North a few blocks. As for the cafe...the food is incredible and moderately priced. Service has really improved and is best in the city. This is not a pretentious can fit in wearing a suit or shorts and a tshirt. As for a night out...the music videos with live VJ's are a huge hit and the drink specials, drag shows and live acts pack the house every night of the week. If you want to enjoy the gay side of have to start at Union.
