We were in the area for a Convention and there were quite a few good restaurants in the Arean District including Dicks and the Three Legged Mare to name a few.

Great area to walk around, especially during an event. Great people watching, lots of choices for dining, a fun place to visit. The only detriment is that parking is expensive!

Always a fun place to go. All the "cool people" go here. Lots of "night life". Just found out, great way to enjoy Arena District, get a room at Hyatt Convention Center, and make a day, and a night, and a day out of it, so you don't drive and drive.

The district incorporates a riverside walk, two sports venues, a food market, and sometimes outdoor activities such as live music and festivals. It is located on the near northwest of downtown, and is very safe. Lots of city police presence, parking rates are very reasonable by large city standards.

This is the first time in 15 years that we made it to the Jazz and Rib fest! The music was great in the background as we grazed our way down "rib row" OMG too many great ribs to taste in one day so we took some home too! Big thanks to channel 6 for providing some shade & seating... More

The arena location in downtown is thee IT area of Columbus because there is always something to see or do!

The Arena District has some of the best nightlife because of the many restaurants and bars, and the Lifestyles Community Pavilion which... More

OK….I'm a bit biased because I work in the Arena District. With that said, you won't find a better area of town for entertainment such as concerts and sporting events like baseball and hockey. The array of eateries is fantastic and there is plenty of easy parking. Great part of the city to visit!

This is the future of how cities can finally capitalize on sports facilities. Put them downtown and use them to build family-friendly entertainment districts.
