Best LGBTQ bar: Union Cafe
Union has served as the Short North's flagship LGBTQ bar before LGBTQ bars were cool. With the perfect people-watching patio, lots of great entertainment and some of the strongest drinks in town, it's the best place to have a "gay old time" in Columbus - even if you're straight.
