It's not just a district; it's an attitude and a way of life. – Overview
It's all here--bars, boutiques, bookstores and coffeehouses for every lifestyle. North Market, the district's public square, is also here. Every first Saturday night on High Street is the Short North Gallery Hop, the city's hippest art and people-watching experience.

A slender strip nestled between historic Victorian Village to its west and Italian Village to its east, this artsy area is just north of downtown and south of the Ohio State University campus. Born in the mid-1800s as the site of Columbus' first public park, Goodale, the city swarmed past the green space and erected many of the 1930s storefronts and facades that mark the eclectic art galleries, superb restaurants and funky shops that line High Street today.

Suits everyone – Great restaurants , good bars, neat galleries. Fun to walk the streets going from place to place. Gallery Hop is a fun time. Eat at Frezno, Dagwoodz, Haiku or L'Antibes. You won't be disappointed. Basso Bean, Coffee table are good coffee shops. Curio shops and art galleries abound. Mac's and Havana are god bars. Great scene for all types and interests.

Cozy and Classic – The short north keeps Columbus in check. With the new Nationwide area keeping things busy, the short north offers more of a diverse, smaller scale atmosphere. From noon to night, there is something to eat, look at, drink or buy. We have got to do something about the parking though. I feel bad for the residence.

Feel Smart for Cheap – The Short North Arts district is the cultural mecca of Columbus. More specifically, the Short North Gallery Hop is an inexpensive (free actually) way to get some culture into your life and to feel smart, without any of that "reading" stuff you get at the library.

Grab a group of friends/coworkers, meet at a bar from some drinks before, then hit High Street and see all the overpriced art. It makes for a fun evening!
