We attended a private event at this location. The dueling piano players were excellent & great fun. The waitress was quick & friendly. The food provided was tasty.

This place has such a fun atmosphere! The only reason I didn't give it a 5-star rating is that the drinks are quite expensive. The musicians are beyond talented and quite entertaining. I'd say if you are visiting Downtown Columbus this is definitely a place...More

Though the drinks and drink prices were reasonable, the overall experience was sub par. I visited this spot for the first time over Halloween weekend. There were underage girls throwing up in the bathroom and men in their 20's (or older) waiting outside the bathroom...More

We arrived shortly after they opened to make sure that we got a table. This particular night things didn't stay to get busy until about 9pm so we didn't need to rush. That may have been due to the fact there was a blue jackets...More

Looking for a place to laugh and sing, then Big Bang Bar is for you. We've seen the show during Red, White and Boom but it does not compare to the show they put on at the club. Drinks and service are good but the...More

The musicians are very talented! Sadly, the venue has some table cleaning staff that are very aggressive and take advantage of their position. Be careful here. The musicians encourage you to come to the stage,give them cash, and make a song request. We did this...More
