Sure, the Horseshoe is ideal for watching the Ohio State football team, but sometimes you want to join a crazy party for game days. That party is at the Varsity Club. Founded in 1959 and located only a few blocks from Ohio Stadium, partying at the Varsity Club is as much of a tradition for college students as jumping in Mirror Lake before the Michigan game. It’s always packed to the gills on Saturdays in the fall, but it’s brimming with scarlet and gray for basketball games, too.
