Nightlife in Columbia

Select Local Merchants

A lengthy lineup of traditional game-day fare and a sports atmosphere captivate fans at Fox and Hound - Bailey's, where the kitchen remains open as late as its neighboring fully stocked bar. Chefs cook until the wee hours of the morning and always until the bar closes, baking Bavarian pretzel starters, crafting towers of onion rings, and preparing hand-battered chicken tenders that are cooked until they are golden brown. They blend their own seasonings to sprinkle over grilled-to-order burgers, and draw from a diverse roster of cheeses and toppings to crown their wood-oven-inspired flatbreads.

While manning the bars, bartenders tap into a stash of libations, such as UV Whipped vodka and Patron Silver tequila, to mix their specialty cocktails. To further foster a sporting ambiance, high-definition TVs glow with sports games and custom music-video playlists, and guests partake in pastimes of ump bashing, billiards, or competitive people watching.

Trained in the art of sausage making, German-born Wilfried Huller put his skills to use by opening a butcher shop in 1968. The business expanded into a restaurant and moved its current location, where mugs sing glassy songs in toasts over brimming plates of Wiener schnitzel and spaetzle. A German-style buffet sets forth an endless parade of steam, which hints at meats free of MSG, mixed with fistfuls of spices, and smoked over natural hardwood. Cool suds spill forth from bottles and taps, fueling revelry with honey-hued wheat beers from Franziskaner and Maisel. The onsite butcher shop sends homemade sausages with guests eager to enjoy them in the comfort of vacationing neighbors' kitchens.
