Bars & Cafes
Not far from the glossy sports bars and student hangouts of the university area, Cafe Bourbon Street sits as a dirty little beacon of all that is divey. The walls are covered with grubby old junk. The bathrooms are dirty. Punk bands come from near and far to play before the sauced and grungy crowds here. Long-time local favorites The Feelers even chose Bourbon Street as the site of their swansong performance in August 2008. Drinks-wise, you can't go wrong. Where else can you order a 40-ounce bottle of cheap malt liquor and drink it right there at the bar? See website for schedule of events.
Offers award-winning food and unique beverage menus. Enjoy appetizers, cool salads, small plates, sandwiches, great burgers, steaks, seafood, desserts, and the chef's signature dishes.
Right across from a university in central Ohio, one would not expect to find a seafood shack straight outta Ft. Lauderdale, Flordia. Nevertheless, Ugly Tuna Saloona persists. Located right across from the Ohio State University, the place is a double shot of Floridian fun right down your gullet. The menu consists of fish done a ton of ways, from raw shellfish and steamed pots, to grilled mahi and fried crab cakes. The house's namesake swimmer -- tuna -- can be served sandwich-style, taco-style, seared with ginger, or grilled and jerked. A number of non-seafood options are available to appease the squeamish (or allergic), ranging from burgers and sandwiches to steaks and salads. In terms of atmosphere, the Tuna is a party all the time.
At Panera Bread, you can enjoy freshly prepared bagels, breakfast sandwiches, breakfast favorites, sandwiches, pastas, soups, panini, salads, just baked bread, pastries & sweets, and a Panera Kids menu.

Village Idiot is a sports bar in Columbus's university district. This bar offers a welcoming and casual atmosphere and a back patio for when you need a little fresh air. The Village Idiot isn't pretentious or trendy, it simply is what it is, and that's what so many people love about it. Head to the Commonwealth Sandwich Shop next door when you start to get a little hungry.
St. James Tavern is a dive bar in the Italian Village that caters to an adult crowd, as opposed to trendier bars that draw crowds of hipsters.
