After the Ohio Liquor Control Commission passed an emergency rule on Tuesday, restaurants that are still operating are now able to offer alcoholic beverages as an item on the to-go menu. Read that twice. Your eyes do not deceive you.
This new ruling is both a victory for the community—who doesn’t want a delicious cocktail to go with their meal?—and businesses—it’s an extra incentive for folks to support businesses during this time.
“This will help bring additional revenue into the restaurant and money into the pockets of our team members,” said Todd Cumbow, managing partner at Lindey’s.
With that in mind, we wanted to bring you five spots now offering carry-out drinks on their menu. Cheers, Columbus!

According to Cumbow, customers can expect to sip on some of Lindey’s signature cocktails. He said they will have more details in the coming days of the selections available.
2.) El Vaquero | vaquerorestaurant.com
Can you even remember the last time you put back a margarita? And in times like these, treat yourself to the premium tequila.
3.) Cuco’s Taqueria | cucostaqueria.com
Keeping the margarita theme alive, Cuco’s Taqueria will also be offering to-go beverages. Now the question is: do you go with a frozen marg, or on the rocks?
4.) Olde Towne Tavern | theoldetownetavern.com
“We want our carryout cocktail experience to be as close to being at our restaurants as possible,” said Brad Hobbs, managing member of Olde Towne Partners. Here, you can expect cocktails and wine by the glass, bottled and canned beer by the singles or six-pack, and draft growlers.
This is also a four for one spot. In addition to the Olde Towne Tavern, Olde Towne Partners operates The Walrus, Peacan Penny’s, and The Woodbury Urban Diner. These four spots will be running weekly $5 specialty cocktails of the week. Follow along on Instagram for more details.
5.) Condado Tacos | condadotacos.com
If you order a $10 Bud Box through Condado, you’ll receive two tacos from the suggestion menu and a half order of queso or guac with chips. The only thing missing was a house marg, until now. Order a marg with your next take-out meal, or check out the $15 marg kits now available.
“While you can order our House Margaritas to-go with tequila included, we also offer $15 Margarita Kits that come with 32 ounces of our house margarita mix, 2 fruit purees, fresh limes and a how-to card, so customers can create their own margaritas by adding their favorite tequila,” said Joe Kahn, CEO and founder of Condado.
