The Shrunken Head
251 W. 5th Ave
Columbus, Ohio 43201

“A laid back, casual bar and music venue with a variety of events happening Monday through Saturday,” including occasional jazz events.


“Exposed brick & eclectic decor welcome patrons as they walk through the pool room & towards the bar. During pleasant weathered evenings, it’s common for the entire bar to relocate to our lush patio where the city sounds a little softer and cafe lights bring about a comforting, homey glow. Thursdays through Saturdays feature an ever changing array of local & national talent. From comedy, to burlesque to a vast variety of music, one might find themselves walking into a completely different atmosphere from last Saturday’s punk-rock show to today’s Chicago style improv performance. And that is something we love. We are the chameleon of bars, changing as frequently & often as our patrons. We aren’t trying to be anything in particular except a place where those that come can enjoy what they like. We book for you, we mix for you & we listen to you. The Shrunken Head, 100 percent human-being oriented.”

The Shrunken Head is located in the Victorian Village community adjacent to the Short North Arts District on the southeast corner of 5th Avenue & Neil in Columbus, OH USA.
