COVID-19 Travel Alerts

Capitalizing on Columbus’ strengths as a forward-thinking city, we continue to “Live Forward” to help rebuild Columbus’ economy and support the local community during the COVID-19 crisis. Though many events have been cancelled, Ohio has slowly begun the process to reopen doctor’s offices, retail shops, restaurants and bars, salons and general businesses if the proper guidelines are followed. Attractions throughout Columbus remain closed and the Governor has continued the stay-at-home order with those business exceptions.

Service Bar

1230 Courtland Ave., Columbus, OH 43201

(614) 947-1231


The Service Bar is a modern American kitchen & bar with a nostalgic, mid-western sensibility. Located at Middle West Spirits in Columbus, Ohio.

Fueled by a passion to draw deeper connections between food and spirits, the Service Bar delivers an experience that is refreshingly innovative, much of that due to carefully placed hints of nostalgic flavors and techniques.

Executive Chef Avishar Barua’s creations are both balance and tribute to his Midwestern upbringing and Bangladeshi roots.

His fresh interpretation of familiar flavors is the culmination of an impressive career, with roles at New York’s Mission Chinese and WD-50, and locally at 1808 American Bistro and Veritas. At Middle West’s Service Bar, Chef Barua and his team elegantly translate the foundations of great cuisine into inventive dishes for all to enjoy.
