neighborhoods that entertain Short North Arts District

Arena District

Head north on High Street from the Arena District and you’ll land in this creative neighborhood filled with art galleries, boutiques and hip restaurants and bars. The neighborhood’s alternative roots show every July 4 when the DooDah Parade marches down High Street. Another great time to visit is the first Saturday of every month for Gallery Hop, when galleries and stores stay open late and entertainers line the streets.

True to its name, this is the spot for sports action, including the minor league Clippers baseball team at Huntington Park and the pro hockey Blue Jackets at Nationwide Arena. But entertainment doesn’t stop there. There’s also popular indoor-outdoor music venue Lifestyles Communities Pavilion, and a splattering of casual restaurants and bars.

German Village Located just south of downtown, the historic brick homes and streets of German Village make it not just one of the city’s most charming neighborhoods, but a local favorite, too. So it’s no surprise you’ll find great restaurants, shops and bars nestled throughout.

Clintonville Just south of Worthington, this popular neighborhood has attractions from the Park of Roses to the many independently owned retail shops and restaurants that line High Street. During warmer months, people flock to the Clintonville Farmers Market to get fresh produce and to the Olentangy River recreational trail, along the river to hike and bike.

shadowbox live

explore the brewery district  Just a block from German Village, the Brewery District is home to the nation’s largest theater troupe, shadowbox live, which thrills audiences with its original sketch comedy and live music. Stop for locally produced microbrews at the columbus brewing company restaurant or choose from hundreds of varieties at world of beer.

Short North Arts District

One of the city’s historic treasures and culinary hot spots is the North Market, home to chocolatiers, bakers and ice cream makers, cheese pros and ethic eateries. Head here for a big meal, quick snack or a treat to take home. In many cases you can talk with the chefs and entrepreneurs. A few spots not to miss: Photo courtesy ARNOLD AGENCY © SNBA
