Just a few blocks from the Ohio State University campus, there's Rumba Café, a vivacious live-music venue if there ever was one. Some nights, rock bands take the stage, others it's a jazz combo or a Latin ensemble; often there's soul to be heard here, and some funk if you're lucky. Drinks are made stiff, and to eat there's a selection of bocas
, a South American variation on the Spanish tapas. The space itself is cozy and lived-in, and that helps make every performance all the more intimate. See website for concert schedule, photos and more.
