Architecture in Ohio just got a whole lot more intoxicating—and you'll want to check it out. The city is looking into adding pedal pubs to their roster of tourist activities, but they won't just be making stops at local watering holes.
The Pedal Pub franchise currently has tours set up in more than 50 cities across the U.S. and Canada, and they have their eyes set on Columbus, Ohio for their next venture. A Pedal Pub is basically a bar on wheels that you and a group of people can control with your feet—but don't worry, there's a driver steering the way and a bartender in the middle keeping your drinks filled.
While a specific route for the tour has not been confirmed, Columbus City Councilman Frank Miller told The Republic that the Pedal Pub course would closely follow the city's current bicycle architecture tour path. Buildings and beers, anyone?
“In Columbus, it seems like we’re reinventing the wheel,” Ashton Wischmeier, co-owner of Pedal Pub Bloomington, said to The Republic. “There’s nobody out there using a vehicle like this for architectural tours … I think there are a lot of people who would like to have a glass of wine or beer and explore the beauty of Columbus and see some architecture.”
According to Columbus City Adventures, the highlights of the current architecture tour include seeing "the largest neighborhood of Victorian homes in the US, the largest privately preserved historical district in the US, and important works from architects such as Peter Eisenman, Arata Isozaki, to [Columbus'] home grown design firm Moody Nolan."
In addition to visiting the Ohio city's architecture hotspots, the tour will also stop at numerous bars and restaurants for a well-rounded afternoon of fun. Where can I sign up?
