What more could you want? – Arlington is the place to be! The staff is attractive and very friendly. They'll get you going with some interesting shots and set you up on a pool table. If that doesn't do it for you there are dance floors. On the weekends there is a d.j. who WILL take requests. There is NO cover on the weekends (I don't know what the previous review was talking about). If you're a smoker, like me, you can hang out on the patios. OR go check out karaoke on Mondays, it's always good for a laugh.
I walked into Arlington Cafe to be greeted by Dolphins. What do Dolphins have to do with sports bar/night club! The big screens are gone and big bright neons cover the walls. There is a cover charge on Friday and Saturday. WHY there is nobody there anymore. Drinks cost way to much and the staff does not want to be there. If you really want to stay on that side on town UA Pub, Pockets, Polos or DUB PUB are the places to go
Great Place to party – Went last week and the place was packed with the hottest Columbus has to offer. Saw/Met Demetrius Stanley (Former OSU football player) Heard they are starting a Country/Line Dancing Night on Sundays, now if you bomb with a member of the opposite sex you can drown your sorrows to a country song. You can bet I'll be back!
Where well-groomed Gen Xers come to mate. Or, failing that, play pool. – The Scene
Arlington Cafe is actually two bars in one: the rowdy Arlington in front and the mellower Cazzie's in back. Up front, you can play pool at 10 tables, watch sports on the overwhelming number of huge flat-screened TVs, flock around the bar or bust a move on the dance floor. In back, you can play foosball or, um, flock around the bar. Cazzie's ceiling panels can be opened on warm days.
What to Wear
Guys: Dockers, polo shirts, sports paraphernalia. Gals: Any damn thing you want, because you'd be ogled even if you were sporting a shapeless snow parka.
You'll hear a mix of '70s ("I Wanna Be Sedated"), '80s ("Atomic Dog") and '90s ("Intergalactic") fare.
Mostly professional 20-somethings, although you'll spot the occasional 40-ish divorce hitting on college girls.
If you don't meet someone here, you're just not trying.
The Dance floor looks GREAT! – Last Tuesday I went out on the dance floor and I could'nt believe my eyes. UA CAFE? This was something I never thought I would see, because its more like a "sports bar / singles bar". Just being on the dance floor felt like I just jumped from a sports bar straight to a Las Vegas Nightclub. The lights and sound where awsome. They put nice mirrors and got rid of the shady lights they were getting by with, and replaced every thing including literaly raising the roof. This just give UA Cafe another reason for more people to check it out, and its already slamed packed. Great decision UA Cafe thanks for not letting the place get run down. I feel like the money Ive spent there is going back into the place I love to be. GO BLU JAX
best hang out spot around – Arlington Cafe is great because they have everything you could ask for. There is two big bars, about 12 pool tables, dartboards, videogames, a dance floor, amazing food, a very friendly staff, and tons of attractive customers. If you can't find a way to have fun at this bar, you probably won't have fun at any bar.
hot bods everywheres! – Arlington B&C is a great pickup joint. Forget the food, ambience, etc. It's where lots of young COlumbus singles go to get down a little and meet some sexy specimins of the opposite gender. That's enough to make anyone want to go!
Tuesdays Rock – Just got back, it was packed. 2.50 pounders and a sweet lookin crowd. This night is worth checking out.
