And we have a winner! The Bogey Inn was chosen by Alive readers as the Ultimate Party Patio in a resounding victory. The Dublin-area watering hole has long been a popular spot for good times, especially during the Memorial Tournament. Since its unfortunate closing and welcomed reopening, the Bogey Inn has only enhanced its festive atmosphere, drawing a steady clientele of young Dubliners — and others outside the suburb — looking for some fun.
The main reason is the Bogey Inn’s patio. It’s utterly massive with seats galore and partially covered to protect from rain or the unrelenting summer sun. The outdoor space is the bar’s best attraction, with a number of amenities.
There are sand volleyball courts that are always in high demand. The outdoor stage brings in live bands Thursday through Saturday with an eclectic mix of tunes ranging from wild rock to more chill acoustic sets. And let’s not forget about the huge bar operating at full capacity with drafts (crafts, imports and domestics), some wines and a handful of seasonal cocktails. Rounds of shots are ordered frequently as well, signaling the party is in top gear.
The Bogey Inn is also well-known as a destination during big golf events, given its proximity to Muirfield Village Golf Club. While droves head to the Bogey Inn during the Memorial Tournament, the upcoming President’s Cup in October will be a crazy good time as well. The President’s Cup is when the best U.S. golfers take on the best international golfers. And the Bogey Inn is ready to take on all partiers (and golfers, too).
It’s no secret Columbus knows how to party, and the city also loves its patios. The winner they’ve chosen for this contest most surely combines the best of both. Cheers, Bogey.
