Only drawback is the limited food menu. Great live music by Tom and Ian Carroll, and my favorite restroom in all of Columbus it smells FANTASTIC and the hand towels are uber soft. Great atmosphere and cocktails, although if you don't drink Gin you will be searching harder for something you enjoy. Staff was quite friendly and attentive.

"I've been here a few times they get top notch talents. Only got dessert appetizer and alcohol which all was quite good. The servers were the worst part. Never brought me utensils had to get myself. Drinks came late like that the people we were with got theirs and finished before we got ours. And the … more y were impatient like they rather be doing something else. "

"This may be my new favorite bar. It has a little bit of something for everyone. Before you walk in you wonder if you’re at the right place… on the outside it looks like a garage but when you walk in … it’s like your neighborhood dive bar meets funky lounge. You walk into pool tables and dart … more s and then there’s a random fish tank… keep walking through and it has these really cool wooden table booths and a long bar. Look overhead and there are these funky/fancy chandeliers. The staff were extremely friendly. When we got there around 9pm it wasn’t super busy but around 10pm it’s like someone flipped a switch and there were people of all walks of life just having a great time. Loved this place. "

"Tips for having a good time. because I'm an expert after only going twice lol. 1: Go with a friend. 2: Don't hide in the corner 3: At least try and shake your a** when you're walking past the dance floor 4: Pass out some compliments as you are walking from one area to the other to make out w … more ith your friend or shoot a game of pool or go back to the kitchen and grab yourself a drink. 5: dress the part. I think there's a theme every Saturday, I could be wrong. I've read a few reviews of people saying they didn't have a good time. Complaining that nobody said Hi to them or engaged with them in any way. I don't know what these people were wearing or what they did, how they acted or what they expected when they were at the club but… if you are going to hide in the corner nobody's gonna talk to you, if you don't walk around and past people and smile at them and comment on what they're wearing or how they're dressed or Hey nice boobs… nobody's gonna say anything to you. If you aren't wearing something seductive, Nobody's really going to notice you, unless you make yourself noticed. And just because it's "that kind of club" doesn't mean you're going to walk in there and Bang the hottest girl on the dance floor. You are also not going to be friends with half the people there on your 1st night. I'm one of the most introverted people on the planet but when I went to ohana's I went with a friend and I dressed the part. Every single person there was staring at me at some point and nearly every single person stopped me to tell me how amazing I looked, at least once. "

Always a great time! The scene is friendly, the shows try to actually be diverse in casting. Some weekends are a little uncomfortable, but all in all a good time. I'll take this place over stuffy a** racist a** union ANY DAY! Also, who doesn't love Virginia West right?!
