The Jury Room is the oldest continually operating bar/restaurant in Columbus. I find this so unbelievably cool. Named “The Jury Room” since 1831. Re-vamped a couple of years ago under new ownership. Featured on the Travel Channel because it’s supposedly haunted. Open late (until 11pm during the week and 1am on Friday and Saturday). Affordable, delicious cocktail menu.
SCHMIDT’S SAUSAGE HAUS
240 E KOSSUTH ST
Schmidt’s oozes with history. Featured on the Travel Channel and Food Network, the authentic German restaurant began as a food stand at the Ohio State Fair. My pictures show everything in the “Schmidt’s area” on Kossuth Street, but the restaurant is where IT’s at.
There are so many reasons of why I love The Ohio State University campus (did you know it’s the third largest college campus in the country and was also originally named the Ohio Agricultural and Mechanical College?!) but I will say, just walking around their campus is something my husband and I love to do at least once a week.
