Downtown Columbus

Beach Volleyball DiscoveryYour checkbook might say a tropical vacay on the sandy beaches of Tahiti is out of the question, but that doesn’t mean you can’t dig your toes in the sand and then cool off with some boozy drinks—complete with umbrellas—right downtown. Where you say? Come on down to the Discovery District to Discovery Beach and the Grass Skirt Tiki Room. Better yet, find out how to enter to win a gift card to the Tiki Room. Woo Hoo! Free drinks.

Okay, so maybe it’s not quite a beach, but the sand volleyball court across the street from Hills Market and the Grass Skirt is a party waiting to happen. Whether you and some friends need to soak up some sun and feel the sand between your toes, or you want to reserve the court for a special outing, the court is free for everybody to use

All you need to do is go into Hills to sign a release form and pick up the key. Heck, you don’t even need a ball. We have one you can borrow. Work up a sweat, bask in the rays and then head over to the Grass Skirt for some cocktails.

Got a favorite drink? We recommend a Grass Skirt Mai Tai or bowl of Rum and Happiness. Click on through to our Facebook page and tell us what you look for in a downtown news source; you’ll be entered to win a gift card to the Grass Skirt.

And don’t forget, if you want to reserve the volleyball court for a special event, email

The sand and the cocktails are waiting. Cheers.
