If you've ever been to Columbus for an event at the Greater Columbus Convention Center and found yourself looking for a drink, you've probably serendipitously found Char-Bar , right across High Street. Char-Bar is a Columbus institution, with a great selection of beer on tap, dart boards, a pool table and a spacious patio in the shadow of the new Hilton Columbus Downtown. The history of the place is palpable - to get to the restrooms in the stone-walled basement (the original street level), you pass by a lonely piano. This place definitely has character!
