At our downtown Columbus hotel, our farm-to-table Latitude 41 Restaurant will give you a genuine taste of honest Ohio cuisine. For a taste of Ohio entertainment, ask our local Navigator Lauren about the best things to do in the city or the abundant wildlife on display at the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium. When the sun comes out to play, enjoy a dip in our rooftop pool with its panoramic downtown views, or sip a tasty coffee on our spacious patio. We've also got your event needs covered with ample indoor and outdoor facilities, while cocktails at The Bar 41 are the perfect way to start off — or finish up — a night in Columbus.


Manifesto

Pair a dram of Scotch with rustic fusion eats like Asiago-crusted beef tornadoes at this lively bar located next to the Ohio Theatre.
Manifesto welcomes an eclectic crowd from snappily-dressed professionals to evening theater goers into its uniquely-designed space.

You'll find over 60 varieties of Scotch on the menu. Share small plates like Chianti-balsamic braised Ohio beef cheeks, green chili mac and cheese, and baked chicken saltimbocca over snifters of your favorite Scotch, craft cocktails or fine wine. Stop by during their "secret" happy hour for some excellent deals.
