Land-Grant’s Extension in Franklinton is officially open, and City Editor Hanna hit the scene for a sneak peek. Here’s what to expect.

Location and hours

The brand-new spot is at 458 Chapel Alley on Land-Grant’s campus within the Gravity Experience Park. The best part? You can bring your drinks back and forth between LG’s beer garden and the Extension.

Hanna had no issues finding parking on side streets, and using the Park Columbus to pay the hourly rates.

The bar is open:

  • Monday-Wednesday, 3 p.m. to 10 p.m.
  • Thursday, 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.
  • Friday, 11 a.m. to 1 a.m.
  • Saturday, 11 a.m. to 12 a.m.
  • Sunday, 11 a.m. to 8 p.m.

The drinks

The bar will rotate 12 taps and small-batch, experimental libations. We tried:

  • Blanc — A Sauvignon Blanc-beer hybrid, which tasted more on the beer side.
  • Watermelon Lime Spritz — a refreshing vodka spritzer garnished with watermelon.
  • Spicy Paloma — Made with Espolon Silver tequila, grapefruit juice, and Del Maguey Vida mezcal.

Food trucks and their schedules will be announced soon.
