Cap City Fine Diner and Bar

This post is part 2 of a 7 part series featuring Columbus happy hours. Whether you like to head downtown or to the suburbs, we have you covered. Check back each week as Experience Columbus staff spotlight their favorite areas of Columbus to meet friends, share a drink and have some fun.

In this post, Arica explores the happy hour specials abundant in Grandview Heights. Stay tuned for future posts in the series as we explore the Short North Arts District , Park Street, downtown, the University District at OSU, Easton Town Center and Worthington.

Choosing a happy hour location in Grandview is all about atmosphere. Do you want to sip wine at a cellar? Have a cold beer while watching the game? Enjoy the weather on a patio with a cocktail? Or even shoot some pool with friends? Basically, Grandview has a little bit of everything you could want in a happy hour all in the 1.4 square miles I call home. So where do I go to unwind after my 8-5? All of them. (Just not in one night!)

Some of my favorites include Spagio Cellars, where you can sample from thousands of wine, and during happy hour, they waive the corkage fee. Brazenhead Irish Pub is a no-brainer for their Burger Night on Wednesdays. You can get a huge burger with their house made kettle chips for $3, and wash it down with a $2 well drink or $3 glass of wine. Grandview Café is great for drink specials and their two-story patio, plus Team Trivia on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Then, for the Buckeye sports fan, you must go to the new Buckeye Hall of Fame Grill and check out their Block “O” fire pit. During happy hour, you can get $1 off any drink every weekday from 4-6 p.m.

So, next time you are trying to think of where you want to go for happy hour, remember that Grandview packs a lot of options:
