It’s unbelievable we’re just finding this out, but there are actually other places to drink than just the Short North.
We kid, we kid. We’ve been cheerleaders of boonie bars since day one (see Booze beyond the belt: 3 better bars in the boonies).
One of our favorite places to get our drink on actually rubs elbows with the Short North, though.
Italian Villages stretches from 5th Ave to the north, I-670 to the south, High St to the west, and an imaginary boarder to the east.
But we’d like to draw your attention to the heart of Italian Village, 4th St. and Summit/N 3rd St, and seven awesome happy hour houses that occupy the 0.9-mile length.
Seventh Son Brewing Co.
