Bob’s Bar is shaped like an onion. It’s a shockingly strong craft beer sanctuary wrapped in a dive bar shell with one of the most severe toilet layouts in Ohio and a big, flaming banner outside proclaiming “Cultural Hub of the Midwest.”
And Bob’s might have been a typical strip mall pub with a local clientele and a TouchTunes in the corner, perilously near a large Target parking lot and a Gamestop a few doors down. But Bob’s is so much more, as seen by the white sign over the entrance, which promotes the Bar’s cultural center status to everyone who enters. The foundations of any excellent bar are there at Bob’s, but the beer selection warrants the label above the entrance. And the variety is egalitarian, with equal parts High Life and triple dry hopped fruited lactose-infused milkshake IPA, offering outlets for every socioeconomic ability and unlimited possible adjustment throughout a beer-soaked night. Bob’s occasionally has beer on tap that is unavailable anywhere else in Columbus, maybe not in Ohio.
