Who says you have to go to Nashville to experience a little country?
We’ve got our own slice of Music City right here in the Short North. Bristol Republic is what I like to call honkytonk chic. They’ve got the right music, amazing decor, and a country atmosphere that’s pretty much unparalleled in Columbus.
The bar is cozy, casual, and inviting, which aren’t necessarily three words I use often when describing the Short North bar scene in general. They have a delicious menu as well, with southern-inspired items like barbeque, mac and cheese, collard greens, and cheddar cornbread.
On the weekends, they serve a Southern Brunch menu, including an “All You Can Eat Southern Brunch Buffet” on Sundays.
There are a few little nooks throughout the bar giving off a southern vibe, complete with leather and animal print furniture and guitars on display. In addition to the main bar, there’s also a whiskey bar.
Bristol Republic is open Monday through Wednesday from 3 p.m. to 12 a.m., Thursday from 4 p.m. to 2:30 a.m., Friday from 11 a.m. to 2:30 a.m., Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2:30 a.m. and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 12 a.m.
