1044 N. High St., Short North



It looks like the rest of Columbus agrees with Alive's mantra: a happy-hour destination requires great drinks at even better prices. And not only does Bodega have 50 drafts on tap that would make any aficionado drool, but from 4-8 p.m. on weekdays, they're all half-off. Plus, well drinks are $2 and the house wine is a dollar more. That's why, on any given evening, the bar - and, come spring, its patio overlooking High Street - is bursting with the thirsty.
