The new Venue Lounge is an inviting live-music club located in Columbus, OH. The Venue Lounge offers a relaxing place to grab a cocktail while listening to some of the finest instrumental jazz, blues and R&B bands in the city.

A decidedly more mature professional set gathers nightly at The Venue Lounge for networking, cocktails and the sounds of smooth music. The Venue Lounge also features an outside patio with plenty of seating, a full bar and a great atmosphere so that you can feel the experience outdoors.

The Venue Lounge is currently featuring the 2010 Summer Series starting June 1 through September 6 with Happy Hour Specials from 4-8pm Monday through Saturday. The “Venue Vibe Nights” on the weekends feature live jazz groups and other musicians for an intimate concert experience.

The Venue Lounge also offers Sunday bookings for private parties and/or special events.


  1. Great spot! I’m very proud of Darryl and Mackey…keep the dream alive!

  2. I was there on 5/28 for a pre birthday extravaganza with the fellas. I was very impressed with the cleanliness of the Venue and the friendliness of the staff. The Venue is my new spot!!!


  4. Noticed that Shaun Booker is playing Friday the 15th. Never been to The Venue but her music is great to dance to. Do people dance at this club or is it mostly sit and enjoy? Anyone know?

  5. The atmosphere was fun and relaxing. The live band Controversy was great. Everyone was having a good time. Thank you John for walking us to our car!!

  6. The Thursday Nite Open Mic/Jam Session is the place to be. You experience the old and the new in a very relaxing and friendly atmosphere. Everyone comes to enjoy the music and talent and have a good time. Absolutely love the talents of the “Positive Energy” band!

  7. This place is a damn hole in the wall! It don’t look like it’s advertised on the web page! The web page looks like this place is top of the line and elegant but, it’s like a ghetto funeral home with jazz. Thumbs down!

  8. I hope to see y’all tomorrow for our send off party at The Venue. Cindy Gailliard form OSU’s Artzine will be filming more footage for our documentary. “The Road to Memphis”.

    Peace, SBD

  9. I visited the club when I first arrived as a new resident in Columbus, the atmosphere was nice , the bar and wait staff was very friendlly, the owners were very pleased to have patrons arrive.

    I then had the opportunity of becoming one of their Dj’s , and I too enjoyed seeing the patrons give the club positive feed-back on it’s entertainment efforts.

    To all that have not visited, ” COME ON DOWN” and listen to the bands, they are good, especially- ” Fo-Mo Deep ” Althoug I always mess up their name !!!! But they are like that !!!! DJ SPEEDY / the D.C / new Ohio Dj……

  10. A bunch of us came out to listen to the Mary McClendon trio this month! See her again soon?

  11. The Venue Lounge does not only support great local jazz, they helped out our youth shelter Huckleberry House by providing a great place to hold our fundraiser! Our guests had amazing service, and enjoyed great live jazz! Thank you Venue Lounge!

  12. I’m also new to columbus by way of chicago and I found the venue through word of mouth. I’ve been to a few thursday night jam sessions and it’s always a fulfilling experience. The band holds down local talent, everything from drummers to trumpet players to singers who. Highly Recommended.

  13. Hello, this email is long overdue. My wife and I wanted to express our sincere appreciation and thanks to the Venue Lounge for making our 1st anniversary a very special and memorable time at the Venue back on December 17th, 2011. A special thank you to Julian Robinson who arranged and added some special touches for our first experience. We feel so blessed to have had the time we had there and Mojoflo absolutely had an incredible sound! Thank you all for your friendly service and making our night so special! It is certainly a memory we will never forget! Chad and Beth

  14. Been going there from time to time. I know the owner and I think he is doing a fantastic job by doing what he is doing. Kudos to the supporting staff and the professional acts.

  15. Great place for good music. Dancing is limited, food served on a limited basis. You will meet new friends. Older settled patrons good security. Been there many times never any problems.

  16. I am going there (Venue) tonight for the first time, I will report back on how nice it is. STAY TUNE!

  17. My husband and I love this place stop in one night with nothing else to do an feel n love been going ever Sat. Night since an getting ready to go now. Lol!
