Atmosphere is just above average, but crowd is pretty good. Bottle selection is excellent and some good drafts. Price is very reasonable. Seek this place out. I love that they claim to be the cultural hub of the midwest.

(Visited 08/2008): Finally made it to the "Cultural Hub of the Midwest" recently. The bar is located on Rte 23 a couple miles south of I-270N. There is a small lot in front and some street parking nearby, but I imagine finding spots can be tricky at busy times.
After passing their small patio to the interior, you can see a long space with the bar along the left with some table seating across from it. Past that are dart boards and pool tables. The bar offers a good view of the coolers and taps.
The bottle selection is impressive, with local/regional favorites from Elevator, CBC, Great Lakes, Hoppin’ Frog, Bell’s, etc. Also some national beers like Stone, Green Flash and Rogue are represented, as are imports. The tap beers are maybe not as varied but still some solid offerings.
Service on a weekday evening was good, and the bartender was knowledgeable about all the beers that were ordered.
No food here.
Overall this bar is definitely going into my rotatation.

Bob’s is one of my favorite bars in Columbus. Known as The Cultural Hub of the Midwest it is often overlooked due to the fact that it looks like a dive bar and is sandwiched between one of those Work now, get paid now places and a Gyro shoppe. They have roughly 150-170 bottled beers in their coolers, many of which are your everyday finds, but among them are some solid IPAs and stouts. Good selection of Rogue bottles. At any given time, this bar carries Ed’s Cave Creek and Founders Breakfast Stout. You just never know. The weekend staff is the best around, and most of them are beer geeks so they know their stuff and treat their regulars like family. 2 pool tables, darts, jukebox, and Karaoke on Sunday nights. This place can get really loud and very busy on the weekends as there is not a ton of space. No food served here.
It looks like a hole on the outside. When you go in its clean and nice the bar tender was cool and they boast 175 beers. I love this place. The have a world beer tour that gets you t-shirts and mugs and such. On tap they had....Strongbow,Great Lakes Seasonal,
Newcastle, Bass, Guinness, Flying Dog Pale Ale, Chimay White, Bell’s Two Hearted Ale, Magic Hat #9, Elevator Bleeding Buckeye Red Ale, Bar Harbor Blueberry Ale, Hazed and Infused Dry Hopped Ale, Blue Moon, Stella Artois
Unibroue Chambly Noire.
