While the area is a little over-gentrified for our tastes, it has lots of gems, including Northstar (951 N High Street), a mostly local and organic restaurant); Nida’s Thai on High (976 N High Street), the green curry is to die for); and Flower Child (989 N High Street), a great vintage shop.
It also hosts the ever-popular Gallery Hop on the first Saturday of each month, when all of the art galleries debut their new shows, restaurants have special events, and the sidewalks fill with busking musicians.
If you want to go somewhere a little more chill, we suggest checking out Slammers (202 E Long Street), Columbus’ lesbian sports bar.
It has one of the best patios in Columbus, which is filled with witty girls playing corn-hole on warm summer nights.

Ohio’s capital city (and the third largest city in the Midwest) has everything you’d ever need, including the world’s best ice cream, one of the country’s largest universities, and a hoppin’ LGBTQ scene.
We have an estimated LGBTQ population of 35,000, which certainly contributes to our ranking as the second most sexually satisfied city in the country.
The Short North sits in the middle of three neighborhoods, the ritzy and beautiful Victorian Village, the classic and more affordable Flytown (aka Harrison West), and the slightly gritty and really cool Italian Village.
The neighborhoods of North Campus and Clintonville blend together and have a more down-to-earth, organic feel to them.
There are smoke machines, large screens projecting nineties music videos, and disco lights.
