Hadley’s Bar and Kitchen

Snuggled in on booming 4th street at 260 S. Fourth with Microliving, Hadley’s Bar and Kitchen has already exploded on the scene.

Hadley’s inspiration began with the hunt for the best burger, so genuine and satisfying that you can’t wait to indulge with a cocktail or your favorite craft beer. This idea has catapulted a hip and satisfying menu that brings taste to the forefront of conversation. The menu highlights daily specials that span a diverse palate including the Vegan Monday menu brought to you by resident culinary and nutrition expert @wholelivinglauren.

Hadley’s chefs are boasting about the homemade spirited milkshakes that will surely add some spirit to your sipping. The open space and welcoming atmosphere provide a great after work or after hours spot. Full bar and kitchen open until 11pm everyday and bar open until 2am.


City Unveils Big Redevelopment Plans West of Arena District

Columbus officials liked the ideas they got for transforming the old city power plant west of the Arena District so much that they’re green-lighting two of them.

The city has chosen the local development team of Connect Realty and Schiff Capital Group to redevelop the plant at 555 W. Nationwide Blvd. It’s also arranged for Dublin-based developer Borror Properties and joint-venture partner Ruscilli Construction Co. to develop another city-owned property at 640 W. Nationwide Blvd. on the Olentangy River into a new headquarters for both of them. Each project is expected to bring about 150 jobs downtown.


More Micro Apartments Planned for Downtown

A developer of so-called “micro living” apartments has a second project planned for downtown Columbus.

Connect Realty LLC’s complex would offer a mix of 34 one-bedroom, studio and “micro” apartments of 300 to 870 square feet of living space, as well as street-level office and storefronts at West Long and South Front streets.

The $11 million proposal would be built under the city’s work-force housing initiative. The key is a $2 million pledge in a city grant mentioned in Mayor Michael Coleman’s State of the City address Thursday.

Small rooms and dwellings set the mind on the right path, large ones cause it to go astray.
