It’s time to kick off this patio palooza… or should we say fiesta!
The city of Columbus is full of bars and restaurants that specialize in all kinds of margaritas: sickly-sweet or clean and bright, made with mix or fresh-squeezed juice, purist or inventive, frozen or on the rocks, served on an intimate outdoor patio or in a boozy bar scene. But here in the Arena District near downtown Columbus, one restaurant has the best combination – vibrant and bold margarita flavors paired with an eclectic patio just steps from Nationwide Arena and our downtown Columbus apartments.
Nada’s patio is perfect for apartment dwellers, concert goers, young professionals, and devoted sports fans of all kinds. Located just west of Nationwide Arena, Nada is centrally located for anyone who might be headed down to the Arena District for a Columbus Clipper’s game or for a concert at either Nationwide Arena or EXPRESS LIVE! It’s just a short walk away from any resident living at Flats on Vine, Flats II, or Arena Crossing. Nada is across the street from McFerson Commons which makes the patio the perfect hangout for any Columbus music festival goer to grab some drinks and a quick bite to eat in between rocking’ out to some incredible music.
Nada offers mood lifting, drool worthy, Mexican-inspired food & drink with heartfelt hospitality. Nada’s menu features a contemporary take on Mexican and they have some of the best tacos in downtown Columbus. Their menu includes multiple new dishes like the Durango BBQ “Pastor” which has chili-marinated pork, pickled white onion, and guajillo Diablo sauce. Another fan favorite is their new Asian-fusian inspired SeÑor Mu Shu which has Modelo and ginger braised pork, sesame, ancho hoison sauace and a fresh lime cabbage slaw to tie it all together. But you can see their whole menu here.
But if you and your friends or other apartment neighbors are looking to beat the summer heat, there is no better way to do it than with a nice cold glass of one of Nada’s specialty margaritas. If you are looking for a more traditional margarita on the rocks that isn’t too sweet then go with the classic Nadarita made with tequila, lime juice, triple sec and honey. If you are looking for something a little more daring try the spicy and sweet Chile-Mango margarita. It’s made with El Jimador Blanco tequila, ancho chile, fresh mango and pineapple. This drink packs a punch with a slow burn that feels so good. You can also order off their cocktail menu – the Caipirinha (we don’t know how to pronounce this either… just point to the menu) is a Mexican mystery that offers a lap-dance for your taste buds. See their full drink menu here.
Whatever your food and drink choices, the patio at Nada is sure to set the perfect mood. Want to bring some ladies down for a Mexican-inspired bachelorette party? No problem. Nada can hook you up.
