PATIO PALOOZA- here we R BAR!

PATIO PALOOZA- here we R BAR!

As we move from the first week of our Patio Palooza, the Arena Crossing bridge will take you from our first stop at Gordon Biersch onward to R Bar!

R Bar is popular for their half price pizza and rotating taps! Stop in during the week for daily Happy Hour specials including 1/2 off appetizers! R Bar is a relaxed environment to meet with co-workers and friends during the day but also a hot spot for a fun night out! Residents at Flats on Vine, Flats II, and Arena Crossing can walk to R-bar on Sundays to enjoy the $14 pitcher and pizza special on the patio, and walk back home to to cool off in the pool (sounds like the perfect Sunday Funday)! R Bar is a proud partner of the Columbus Blue Jackets and the hub for social gathering on game days and nice summer nights (with its ideal proximity to the Arena in the heart of the Arena District). So let’s hang on the patio, eat some pizza, enjoy what’s on tap and fit in a game or two of corn hole!
