Columbus Flexes Its Strengths

By Michael J. Solender, September 6, 2018

Easy Walking, Global Dining

Several contiguous distinct walkable districts surround the GCCC with vibrant local dining, hip galleries, shops
and entertainment. Find your match here.

Short North Arts District has scores of dining options and one-of-a-kind shops to browse. Try The Guild House, the showpiece eatery of Cameron Mitchell, a local restaurateur with more than a dozen concepts in town.

Meeting attendees mingle with locals at Columbus’ iconic North Market. This unofficial cafeteria of the city features spice emporiums, green grocers and global eats, from pierogies and German bratwursts to Vietnamese pancakes. Want to host a taste of Columbus for your group? The market can coordinate an after-hours event for up to 2,000.

Columbus’ Riverfront district, the Scioto Mile, is the community’s living room with welcoming green space, parks, fountains, shopping and restaurants. Central attractions along the mile are COSI (Center of Science and Industry) and the National Veterans Memorial & Museum, coming in summer 2018.

Find fashionable dining and craft cocktails at Hotel LeVeque’s The Keep, a contemporary brasserie/speakeasy offering French-influenced cuisine extending to influences from Louisiana, Southeast Asia and North Africa.
