Massive new East Side marketplace opening its two new bar concepts to the public this weekend

While we don’t have access to the market’s full slate of vendors just yet, the East Market—the 30,000 foot centerpiece of the historic Trolley District development in the Franklin Park neighborhood—we’ll be able to patronize at least part of the market in the coming weeks.

That’s because the East Market’s pair of new bar concepts, The Railhouse and Switch, will open to the public this weekend, according to Aubrey Stevens, Director of Operations at the East Market.

“We are thrilled for the first phase of the market to open to the public! Our neighbors have been waiting patiently to see inside,” Stevens said. “Opening Railhouse and Switch on weekends will be a great way for the community to get a feel for this being a new centerpiece of the neighborhood.”

Starting today, both bars will be open to the public on weekends. This weekend, they will be open on Friday and Saturday.

Following this weekend, the bars will be open Thursday from 4 p.m. until midnight, Friday from 4 p.m. until 2 a.m., Saturday from 11 a.m. until 2 a.m., and Sunday from 11 a.m. until 12 a.m.

The Railhouse is located on the market’s first floor, and Switch is located in the space’s lower level.

Both of the names for the new bars, like the East Market’s interior decoration, are inspired by the development’s history as a trolley repair depot for Columbus transit system.
