Best Hipster Hangout

The Blue Danube was a really cool bar. Made my first trip to C-Bus for the Miami game last Sept. and remember (hazily) that it was real nice in there. The Library was another place I really liked too.

i must be the biggest hipster in the world because larry's, hound dog's, and buckeye doughnuts were my top three hangout places in college

Don't forget his skinny jeans.

Mine were the Agora, Mr. Brown's Descent, Varsity Subs (where Eddie's place is now).  And yes, I am that old.

The hipsterist hipsters hung out at Cafe Bourbon St., but it's too cool for this list.

Mustards, Crazy Mamas...hipsters.

Park Alley...frat boys

Papa Joes...drinkers


Grad students told everyone that Larry's was a gay bar, so undergrads wouldn't go in.

I only got my masters degree at Ohio State, so I was only ever a graduate student there. I drank at Larry's, it was awesome, and yes, we did tell the undergrads it was a gay bar so that they would stay out. But I'm sure they weren't that stupid. I think they just liked the cheaper bars south of campus better (speaking of RIP).

Here's proof that I don't get back to Columbus nearly as often as I would like: I didn't know Larry's was gone. What happened? Campus Partners?

No just sold it...not sure is The Sloppy Donkey now (if that's still in business)

What happened was the economy.   Larry's, Little Brother's, and Vic's were all victims and Columbus is now a worse place because of it.  What a shame.  Larry's had been open since before prohibition, now it's the fucking sloppy donkey.  jesus...
