Patio Szn: 5 spacious outdoor plazas along High Street

Ahh, there’s nothing like capping off a long, stressful day in the office with a frosty pint on a sunny patio.

What’s more, these patios along High Street will provide optimal chances for people watching AKA opportunities for you and your coworkers to talk about something other than Jen from accounting’s chewing or your boss’ borderline inappropriate sense of humor.

Weather’s looking peachy for the next few days so we suggest you spend them on any or all of these five High Street patios!

Cazuela’s |2321 N High St

This campus institution, located directly off High Street, is known for its large patio, margaritas, and all-around great environment.

Running EVERY day from 2-6pm and again from 10-11pm, Cazuela’s happy hour includes half-off apps (bean dip, quesadillas, fries) and discounted margs ($5.99 lime and $6.99 flavored).

Michael’s Goody Boy | 1144 N High St

The newly-renovated Short North staple is back and better than ever after Corso Ventures bought it up and gave it some much-needed TLC. 

Happy hour is Monday through Friday from 3-6pm with half-priced shareables, soups, salads, pizzas, sandwiches, desserts, beer, wine, and craft cocktails. 

BROUGHT TO YOU BY

The Eagle |790 N High St

Another Short North patio, another great happy hour, another chance to people watch and soak up the rays.

From 3-6pm Monday through Friday, The Eagle offers $4 snacks like pickled vegetables, house-made bacon, corn nuts, and sausage and kale dip. For drinks, they offer half-off house cocktails and beers.

The real star? That $2 18oz High Life draft chalice.

Standard Hall | 1100 N High St

It’s not Ohio’s #1 Uber destination for nothing! Standard Hall’s patio is spacious and sure to make any boozy pop or 90s-themed Throwback Thursday drink taste just a little bit better.

Happy Hour is Monday through Friday from 3-6pm with #3 canned beers and $5 shareables.

Union Cafe |782 N High St

Located in the heart of the Short North, Union is welcoming and friendly to persons from all walks of life.

A patio with ample shade that is prime for people watching, Union’s happy hours run from 3-7pm weekdays and includes $2 drafts and domestics, $3 wells, and rotating daily drink specials.

Also, capitalize on the $5 small plates of mac and cheese, cheese curds, and biscuits with chicken sliders.

Milestone 229 overcomes 2020 challenges, to reopen soon

Every industry has taken a hit this year. It’s cliche to generalize it. With that being said, some businesses have taken more damage than others.

Milestone 229, located on the river’s Scioto Mile, was forced to closed in March along with all the other restaurants across Ohio, as the restaurant industry took a hit despite the uptick in carryout orders.

Just as things seemed to be coming back to normal, as restaurants and bars were allowed to reopen, the protests demanding change during the Black Lives Matter movement brought an unexpected rioting component that had devastating effects for Milestone 229.

The downtown, upscale eatery with the playful fountain for kids and adults alike, took an extra hit when rioting, looting, and vandalism broke down the windows of the restaurant on Thursday, May 29. Milestone 229 was supposed to reopen the upcoming Monday.

Griggs has tried his best to stay positive through it all, finding some valuable and much-needed help along the way.

“A good friend of the restaurant, Cathy King, executive vice president of Wasserstrom, started a GoFundMe page for Milestone 229. We are using that money to help relaunch the restaurant.  We also had many friends and family come down the morning after the riots to help clean up the broken glass.”

Doug Griggs, co-owner of Milestone 229


Now, recovering once again, Milestone 229 is set to open back up on Wednesday, July 8. The fine-dining establishment will offer patio and dining room seating, as well as a new curbside pickup. Co-owner Doug Griggs said in an email that the restaurant was able to keep the majority of its patio seating and over half of its dining room seating. 

Milestone 229 has a new venue revamped for the summer as well. You can view it here.
