Trendy, contemporary gay martini video bar in The Short North.
This trendy gay martini video bar mostly caters to fashionable 21+ gay male clientele. The bar can sometimes be a bit snobby but it's still one of my favorites. During the day it's less busy and can be a good date location. During the evenings (and especially on the weekends) it can be very crowded due to the small space. Sunday nights are the busiest due to the dual strip show and drag show.
cigars??? you can't even smoke in this place!!.
o.k. whoever wrote the description of this bar did it years!!!!!! ago. there is no smoking in this bar, due to the no smoking ban ,so hence, forget about the whole cigar thing (which went out years ago anyway), there is no outdoor patio so patrons have to stand out on the sidewalk to smoke. The bar itself is beautiful to look at, nice atmosphere, and depending on whats going on nice crowd, a little on the s & m side (stand and model). music videos and decent sound system, pool table in the back. and oh yes, the drinks, cold, no different than anywhere else, so......why so expensive?
Cigars, martinis and a big bass beat.. The Scene Filled with booming bass and rhythm, Havana is a sort of alternative cigar club. The stogies and martinis are here, but visual stimuli abound too, including large screens for videos, lights and a dance floor. Short North residents Rajesh Lahoti and Ray Brown own Havana, as well as two other Short North hot spots: Union Station Video Cafe, a restaurant and bar, and Axis, one of the trendiest dance clubs in Columbus.
The Draw Havana's offers a male strip show every Sunday and Monday, it also hosts a drag show the second or third Thursday of every month. As local bars go, it's always hopping on the weekends, since plenty of folks live within walking distance.
