A brunch stop on the way back from Jackie Oís bottle sale, this was well worth the short detour from I-71. Located in one of Columbusí better bar scenes this was bustling even around 11:30 on a Sunday. The tap list is a mixture of local and regional favorites. Other than perhaps the token PBR you will not find many filler beers offered. Prices are reasonable even before factoring in some of the happy hour specials listed.

The bottom line is that if you are in the vicinity this is worth a visit. Plan to spend a couple of hours making your way south towards the downtown brewpubs using this and Bodega as a starting point.

Sorry if this place reminds you of a New Orleans brothel then you need to leave home more often! That being said great place with ambiance, deep beer list & groovy cocktails. Wish I wasnít driving so I couldíve dug deeper into the beers.

The decor in this place gave me the impression of a voodoo New Orleans brothel. Large tap list with some local Ohio interest but nothing too exciting when I visited. Fancy pub grub on the menu. Odd little hole in the wall for the short north in Columbus.

When I visited: Late January 2013. What I had: Rogue Fifteen Thousand Brew Ale, Hoof Hearted Musk of the Minotaur IPA, and Wolaverís Oatmeal Stout on tap, white wine and cocktails for the lady. What I liked: Large comfortable tables provide plenty of privacy, quirky and somewhat mesmerizing decor, stellar beer menu with many draughts I hadnít seen before, welcoming and efficient waiter made great recos, clearly visible chalkboard, my girlfriend loved her drinks, we would come back here in a heartbeat. What I disliked: Nothing that I can recall. Would I go back? Without question. This was the best spot that we visited on our trip to C-Bus. Overall Rating: 90

Stopped for a beer on a Saturday afternoon early so not many folks in the bar, decent draft list and funny things on the walls of the bar. Mix of local brews and us micros.

Stopped in here on a Sunday and it was hoppin.Service was average, the waiter took care of us but nothing out of the ordinary. The food was very good and the beer selection was slightly above average. For the newbie beer person this would be great. I would definately revisit for the food.

This place was a bit hard to find for us. We had parked down by the Cap and walked up. It didnt really align to where it was supposed to be on the maps. This could just mean we arent that bright. Hah! The interior rocks. Period. We went on a Sunday afternoon and had to wait a mere 15 minutes. The place is small and there is NO room to wait so I imagine it gets crowed at peak times. Our waiter, while friendly, was not overly attentive, but I think this is just how servers are in the Short North. To hip to be bothered. The food was fantastic. Not overly large portions. I had the Ranchero quesadilla and it was divine! I was not overly impressed with the beer list to be honest, but I guess I have just had too many beers at this point. They had the usual suspects. Stone. Barleys. Left Hand. Etc...If in the area I would definitely stop in, but probably wouldnt go out of my way to get there. I think I preferred Bettys overall.

This is one of the bar/restaurants that is owned by the same people who have Bettyís, Tip Top and Dirty Franks. These people know their stuff. This is a small place, like all places in Short North. Its hard to find, but they have parking off to the side which is very convenient for the area. Rock-a-billy is the best way I can describe the decor here. There are crazy chandeliers, cattle skulls, and scorpion print wallpapers. Its mostly black and red throughout. The taps are right at the end of the bar. Obviously they rotate but I have seen selections from Barleys, CBC, Great Lakes and some of the other usual Ohio beers, some Founderís, Bellís and some interesting Belgians you dont seen too often like Piraat. This place has a focus on female and organically brewed beers as well as Ohio brewed selections. The menu, like most of the other sister bars, features vegetarian and vegan options. The food menu isnt expansive (mostly wraps) but it is still all very good. This place has a lot of that edgy Short North charm to it. I enjoy visiting here and seeing what beers have rotated into their taps.

Small but happening restaurant with many great beers on draft. Nice regional, national, and international beer selections Beer prices teeter on high side. The menu is not huge but somewhat unique in its offering of comfort foods. You can get an entree, side and cupcake all served on an old school plastic lunch tray. The food is good. A nice combination of good food and a good beer selection
