About The Light of Seven Matchsticks

Our favorite basement speakeasy is closed for the near future until we can ensure the health and safety of our guests and staff. In the meantime, we have an inspired collection of bottled cocktails that you can take home with you.

The Light of the Seven Matchsticks, quietly located beneath Natalie’s Coal-Fired Pizza and Live Music, asks you to step into a world gone by. With plush velvet seating, classic bar, and warm light, you can almost hear the soft whispers of Prohibition-era Columbus and the rich history of the location and the people who have come before. The house drink menu asks you to take a bold dive into the exciting and upcoming world of craft cocktails, stirred and shaken with premium house-made ingredients and an adventurous spirit. The food menu shows a dedication to tradition while pushing the boundaries of the palette and is guaranteed to delight. Our experienced and knowledgeable staff is dedicated to guiding you to your new favorite and unforgettable libation.
