Open Every Day:

The HEY HEY Story

Our story began in 1900 with an owner intent on creating a comfortable space where people could escape the tough rigors of life in the 1900s. A hep joint to wear your glad rags and sip some giggle juice for a few jitney. Shortly after opening, the Hey Hey faced a curveball as prohibition era America began.

The ban on booze didn’t stop the Hey Hey, and between you and me, it became one of the most happening speakeasy’s in Columbus. To avoid attention, the windows were closed up and the patrons said that they were playing cards! Bootleggers would yell “Hey! Hey! The Beer is Here!” and they became known as the Hey Hey Boys! The name obviously stuck!

Finally the booze ban ended, the Hey Hey continued it’s legacy of LEGALLY providing cold suds & great food to the people of Columbus.

Today, we are still know as having the best Happy Hour in town with the most engaging music performances … and our world famous Sauerkraut Balls
