When Axios Columbus visited the new sober bar downtown for lunch, no other patrons ate for nearly our entire meal.

Driving the news: The Columbus Downtown Development Corporation is now offering incentives to encourage workers and visitors to eat lunch downtown again.

How it works: $10 vouchers are offered Tuesdays and Wednesdays between 11am and 2pm at four pickup locations: the Lazarus Building (150 S. Front St.), Capital Crossroads (23 N. Fourth St.), Experience Columbus Visitor Center (277 W. Nationwide Blvd., Ste. 125), and the Columbus Museum of Art (480 E. Broad St.).

  • Those with LunchBucks vouchers can use them for lunch at 17 different restaurants, from hot dogs at Dirty Frank's to club sandwiches at Lexi's next to the Statehouse.
