Dinner & Drinks
Whether its a draft at Ill Mannered Brewing Co., a bottle from the Village Winery, or a nice glass of bourbon at Liberty Tavern, Powell has plenty of quality watering holes to kick your night off in style. From there, take your pick from the city’s signature eateries such as Local Roots or the Prohibition Gastro Lounge for an unforgettable night of dining. Room for dessert? Look no further than Mrs. Turbo’s Cookies, or central Ohio favorite Jeni’s Splendid Ice cream.
For the cherry on top, finish off your night with some tunes. Powell’s own Nocterra Brewing Co. and Local Roots are just a couple of places where live music can be found on the regular.
For a less conventional night out, consider booking a cooking class at Savoir Cooking + Wine. Svaoir provides hands on cooking classes for skill levels from novice to advanced, as well as wine tastings, and private events. Classes cover a wide range of topics including regional cuisine and technique based workshops, with upcoming classes including the Holiday Champagne Brunch, Winter 2019 Kids Camp, Wine Bar Dinner: Taco Tuesday, Winter Brunch, Risotto Workshop and more.
