When you're looking for hard-charging night out, Columbus has you covered. Find live music any night of the week, local drinks at watering holes all across the city, and an accessible, diverse arts scene that leaves many bigger cities envious.
There's something special about getting dressed up and going out to see a show. In Columbus' Theater District, there are four large theaters and three smaller spaces bringing you everything from ballet and opera to avant garde plays. The Wexner Center for the Arts puts on frequent artist talks, dance and music performances and cinema screenings. During the summer months, the Columbus Symphony brings outdoor concerts to downtown's Columbus Commons for its popular Picnic with the Pops series. The Brewery District's Shadowbox Live! is America's largest resident theater company, and performances range from the comedic to the artsy.
