I always enjoy coming here whenever Iā€™m in the Columbus area. I enjoy the energy, the friendly bar tenders, the food, the drink, and the great gay vibe here and this area of town. I thoroughly enjoy my time here every time.

Perfect spot

Great food and drink menu with exceptional waitstaff. Perfect location right in the center of the short north. Definitely a spot to see while in Columbus. Also, right across from Axis Nightclub.
