Brothers Drake family growing with Polaris pub/co-working space

Brothers Drake Meadery will soon be a big brother to its second location in Polaris.

The local meadery is teaming up with COhatch to offer North Columbus a co-working space by day and a craft bar and entertainment center by night.

Cohatch The Pub is slated to open this winter.

Brothers Drake also plans to produce its specialty brew of meads on site at Polaris, giving customers a view into how its product is micro-brewed, while highlighting its local sourcing practices.

It will offer tours, experiential tastings and knowledge sharing. The venue will feature some live music similar to its Short North location.


The Pub will be open to the public to rent for events, such as holiday parties, weddings, birthday parties, and fundraisers.

COhatch’s co-working component will offer guests 7,000 square feet of private offices, dedicated desks, game areas, co-working spaces, meeting rooms, large conference rooms, indoor outdoor event spaces, Wi-Fi, and numerous exclusive member perks, including a fitness center membership and access to a Florida beach home.

COhatch plans to open more than a dozen total locations in Central Ohio within the next five years.

“We share in the vision of COhatch and its plan to scale its community-based concept across Central Ohio and then the Midwest,” said Oron Benary, owner and general manager of Brothers Drake. “How cool is this new model where patrons of COhatch can work locally in an office environment by day and by evening, relax and enjoy our honey-based concoctions at a location such as Polaris. We are beyond excited to bring a new authentic local feel to the area and be a part of COhatch’s growth plans.”

“Brothers Drake is an amazing and authentic local brand that was born out of the Short North,” said Matt Davis, founder of COhatch. “They really exemplify what we are trying to accomplish by finding the best local makers to join our community so that together we can all thrive and create the lifestyle our employees, customers and members desire. The Pub is a unique work and meeting space that is also a lifestyle amenity for our members. There is nothing we can’t achieve if we learn to share again and build a like-minded community that supports one another and values a work/life balance.”

COhatch currently has two locations in Worthington, Ohio, and three others under construction. The Delaware location “The Newsstand” will open this Fall and the Upper Arlington location “The Overlook” and Polaris “The Pub” will open this Winter.
