Columbus Alive

Claddagh Irish Pub

585 S. Front St., Brewery District



Since taking over Claddagh's Front Street location a couple years back, Craig McConville has made Claddagh a hub for the Beautiful Game, where soccer fans gather weekly to cheer on the U.S. national team, root for their favorite English Premier League club and chant their way through Columbus Crew match day.

The vast collection of team scarves on display is no joke - Claddagh takes this stuff seriously, offering special events like December's World Cup draw party and last week's Crew supporters' songs recording session. It's become ground zero for Columbus soccer culture.

Runners-up: Fado, Ruby Tuesday
