I have a listing right near Bob's Bar the self proclaimed 'Cultural Hub of the Midwest ' but I never thought I would actually go into Bob's Bar.... for so many reasons. I was surprised when a co-worker sent the whole office an email on Friday morning saying "be there or be square" about Bob's Bar.
The "be there or be square" was about meeting at the north Columbus bar for happy hour.
I have a picture of the Bob's Bar sign in a previous post about my listing at 301 Girard Rd. Columbus OH 43214. Bob's Bar is walking distance to that home. An easy walk.
Why I never thought I would ever actually go to Bob's Bar? Why I never thought I would actually set foot in Bob's Bar... "The Cultural Hub of the Midwest"
- I don't go to "bars"
- I am not a beer drinker.
- A series of funny YELP reviews. The YELP reviews made me expect a dirty place with snotty, immature clientele and bad service.
Here's just a snippet of one of the funniest YELP reviews of a Columbus business... Melanie a 20 Something who has reviewed Bob's Bar three times on Yelp wrote:
"Every thirty-something on the north side whose biological clock is about to explode and / or who is recently divorced or cheating seems to hang out here. I have only encountered skeezy people at this bar and all of them have bad taste in music. "
That is just a small piece of one of Melanie's funny reviews of Bob's Bar. I wish I would have reread it before I went I could have looked for "skeezy people", I would have listened for those clocks ticking... I worried I would feel very, very old at Bob's Bar...
Bob's Bar is at 4961 N. High St. Columbus Ohio 43214. It is just south of Graceland, north of Morse Road.
I was pleasantly surprised by Bob's Bar. Only five of us showed up. The rest of the Real Living HER Worthington office are squares? To be fair it was the second "Happy Hour" with the office we were invited to this week. The first was in Powell...which while nice is certainly not The Cultural Hub of the Midwest.
Clintonville businesses don't judge a marquee by it's cover another funny YELP review of a N. High St. business... YELP calls it a "Clintonville business."
Edit May 2011 the link to the listing was going to Real Living's site... not my site on Real Living. Not Real Living HER's site (local) but the brand's site. Changes in late 2010 and early 2011 with Real Living websites... the old Real Living website the link would have gone to the Real Living Realtime (Realtime? Real Time ) Listing and showed that the property sold, when it sold. What it sold for.... you know transparency? Providing consumers information. That was a feature we had long, long ago in Columbus... It was something that made Real Living HER so far ahead of other real estate companies. It's gone links are forwarded to the national site.
