Soon there will be one more place to dine and drink in the Arena District.

Vine + Forge, a new bar and restaurant located in the newly-renovated Crowne Plaza Columbus Downtown, is shooting for a grand opening at the end of October/early November.

The establishment “seeks to delight guests with inspired food, hand-crafted cocktails, world class beer, and wine selections with a truly local vibe,” according to a press release. The menu will include tapas-based shareable items hand selected by Executive Chef Angela Allison.


Mixologist Shawn Ford developed Vine + Forge’s cocktail menu. Ford is a nationally recognized, award-winning hospitality trainer, operator and concept developer, and former resident Master Mixologist on the hit Paramount Network TV show Bar Rescue.

Vine + Forge’s namesake comes from the historic legacy of Ohio’s agriculture and steel industries, dating back to the early 1800’s.

Crowne Plaza Columbus Downtown is located at 33 East Nationwide Blvd. For more information on Vine + Forge, check out their Instagram.
