Top 3 best overall bars in Columbus

Swivel your head in any direction around here and your eyes will probably fall on a drinking hole.

But the real question is…which ones are best for boozin’?

Luckily, thousand of Cbusers who minored in alcohol in college turned out to put their two cents into our ColumBest reader poll.

Here’s how it panned out for the best overall bar category:

#3 Seventh Son

6.9% of 5,666 votes

3683, 1101 N 4th St, Columbus

#1 PINS Mechanical Co.

14.2% of 5,666 votes

 141 N 4th St., Columbus -Downtown
6558 Riverside Dr., Dublin


PINS seems to have taken the cake this year, sweeping up three number one spots—all majorly important categories, all clinched by the duckpin bowling alley that stole our hearts last calendar year.

Obviously, as the people’s champ, it may be a waste of breath even explaining, but PINS gives you delicious drinks, great atmosphere, and plenty of fun shit to do to regress you back to childhood.

If you haven’t been, you’ll surely find your way into PINS sooner or later, and with patio weather finally arriving, we’d recommend sooner.
