Neighborhood Bar (Polaris/Westerville)

Tequila Cowboy – 18.7% of 3,504 votes

It’s hard to compete with Tequila Cowboy, bringing a little taste of Nashville to the suburban strip bordering Franklin and Delaware counties. In fact, the bar was once featured on the ABC show Nashville. There aren’t too many places in Columbus (let alone Polaris) where you can witness four different shows under one roof—from cover tributes to original artists like outlaw legend David Allen Coe—and ride a mechanical bull.
