    Come in for happy hour, drink cheap beer (yum, Eliot Ness) and order food. Yes - you can order take-out or have food delivered to the bar. Enjoy some Chix at Solly's? Don't mind if I do.

    This little dive bar has a great atmosphere, usually a younger crowd, and is a great place for a neighborhood drink or chat any day of the week. Come weekends and you might be fighting for the bar

    When you age out of the college coed set at Madam's Organ, you'll feel right at home at Solly's, with its rickety floors, cheap beer, and over-it bartenders.

    Unassuming decor, but the kitchen produces some fan good bar food. If unsure what to get, go for the bacon grilled cheese

    If you're from Ohio, you'll feel at home at this chill bar. Drink a delicious bottle of Great Lakes once you've warmed up on a few $3 PBRs.

    Loyal to Ohio State and the Miami Dolphins, game nights at this divey sports bar are a cacophony of shouted commentary, cheers, and jeers.

    Come see Eric Himan, Sunday 7pm on his way to the SiriusXM to record some of his tracks live. Himan has been featured in The Advocate’s 40 under 40, Out Magazine’s Out 100 & LOGO #1 Click List Artist.

    Double check your tab before cashing out. I definitely got charged $18 for a drink he told me would be $11. Unfortunately I wasn't in a frame of mind to argue it when I left...
