Restaurants in the Arena District
The Arena District is a popular place for dining before and after local sports games, or enjoying a night out on the town. Dining options range from the unique like Nada offering upscale Mexican cuisine, to the familiar beer and pub grub at The Half Pint, while hockey fans will find a raucous home at R Bar.
The North Market and Park Street
At the northern end of the district, the North Market is home to 35 local vendors that display the best of the local food scene. Shop for spices, produce, meat and kitchenwares, and choose from Vietnamese, Indian, Belgian, Polish, Mexican, vegetarian, fried chicken and more for an outstanding breakfast, lunch or dinner. Treat yourself with a scoop from the original Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams or a craft cocktail from The Barrel and Bottle. Adjacent to the North Market, the clubs and bars on Park Street are a mainstay of Columbus’ nightlife scene.
