See us enjoying it at a COHJS show.

The Clintonville Woman's Club is a wonderful intimate and sun-filled space with another of the best dance floors in Columbus. On High Street between Henderson/Cooke + Broadway, immediately N of the Park of Roses, it's easy to get to, has a big private parking lot and easy access.
CWC offers a very nice light food menu and snacks for purchase.
Note for COHJS regulars: CWC is BYOB – BRING YOUR OWN BEVERAGE! (no cash bar)

The Makoy Center in Hilliard has hosted countless COHJS shows for many years and is a familiar and great spot for us. It's been said that the Makoy has the largest and nicest dance floor in the area. I don't know how we'd prove that but we surely don't know any reason to dispute it! The Makoy offers light food (pizza, burgers, etc) and snacks for purchase, and has a full cash bar.
