About The Place

We are still figuring out the best way to safely reopen our little basement speak-easy. 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.

"I walked in a pouty stranger with horse blinders on, and emerged three hours later, in euphoria. The charm of this place isn’t just the booze—which was good—or the food—also good. It’s the people.

Perhaps that’s the true secret of The Light of Seven Matchsticks—there’s a night for you here that you may not expect. Now don’t get me wrong, I love a good secret—but some secrets are just better spilt."
