EXPLORE SHORT NORTH
This lively, expansive neighborhood is the heart of Columbus’ artsy soul. Here are a few must-tries.
Slip into one of Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams’ hometown shops for a one-ofa-kind scoop, like Brambleberry Crisp. Denmark on High delivers seasonal cocktails and savory apps. Hidden on the west border of Short North, Basi Italia offers big flavor and charm. If the living room-like nook is full, head to a patio out back tucked between homes off a residential street.
At Le Méridien Columbus, The Joseph, linger in the hotel’s artgallery lobby. Many of the 500-plus works of art come from Ron and Ann Pizzuti, two of the city’s most prominent art collectors, who developed the hotel. The Pizzuti Collection art museum is just a block away.
Two blocks from The Joseph, boutiquehop on North High Street. Local fashion highlights include Rowe for contemporary women’s clothing, Tigertree to make a hipster statement or Ladybird for quirky-yetclassic pieces.
