“Fun Time”
Reviewed July 31, 2013

I should start this review off with a disclaimer. I went to Columbus to see the Columbus Blue Jackets and Pittsburgh Penguins square off in an NHL regular season game with about 15 friends. The Blue Jackets have poor attendance numbers, but when they play Pittsburgh a lot of people from the three rivers city fill the arena. As such when we went we were around a lot of friends and fellow Penguin fans. That being said the Arena District is a safe place to party and directly in front of the arena. Standard places to eat which is not a bad things i'd rather have decent food than bar food.

Fun place!

“Arena District - happening place”
Reviewed April 24, 2013

The Arean District dominates the Columbus downtown scene for activity, restaurants, nightlife, because it's home to the Nationwide Arena, where the NHL Columbus Blue Jackets play. The area has sprouted all kinds of fun entertainment venues, and even though it's only a decade old, the brick streets and sidewalks give it a really warm welcoming feel.

“Patience is a virtue”
Reviewed April 10, 2013

It's taken a long time, but the area continues to grow. This area used to be blighted, but 10 years later, Gallery Hop is the bomb.
