BBR Columbus encourages merrymaking with three bars sprawled across 5,000 square feet, contemporary American comfort fare, and 20 beers on tap in a lively, rock 'n' roll–inspired atmosphere. Chefs infuse the menu's fleet of small plates, wood-fired flatbreads, and gourmet burgers with fresh, local ingredients whenever they're available or materialize in the chef's magic hat. Bartenders stationed behind fully stocked bars unleash craft brews from taps while mixing cocktails with such eclectic liquors as blue curacao and cucumber vodka.

Live music occasionally replaces a regularly featured DJ, who furnishes dancers with a suitable soundtrack for rhythmic strolls to the roomy patio.
