Upon walking into Law Bird, your eyes immediately fix on a pink neon sign that reads “Not Governed By Reason.” This is the sign that confirms you’re in the right place, whether you’re meeting friends for Happy Hour or grabbing a negroni after a long day. Law Bird is part neighborhood cocktail bar and part restaurant hospitality industry hang, with plenty of delicious bar snacks, a color palette that will definitely remind you of Miami Vice, and some extremely rad Prince-themed bathroom wallpaper. They opened four months before the pandemic shut down bars in Ohio and did to-go cocktails for a while, but now they’re one of the best new bars not just in Columbus, but the country. Start your visit with the excellent $5 mini martini, which buys you time to look through the rest of the well-organized menu. We’ve already made their “bougie” hot dog Wednesdays a regular tradition.
