The heart of downtown Columbus typically shuts down early, but one street stays wide-awake early into the morning Wednesday through Sunday: Wall Street. This LGBT club celebrates diversity in every way, going so far as to host country line dancing followed by a hip-hop party on Thursdays. Sexiness is standard at Wall Street, where the options include drag shows, burlesque and a monthly Traffic Jam dance party in which club-goers broadcast their availability by wearing red, yellow or green: taken, open or available. With an ample dance floor, great DJs and a lack of lounge seating on the main floor, dancing is almost compulsory. And people-watching, that’s mandatory.
Runners-up: Axis, Long Street District
