former Round Bar
Columbus, OH

The Round Bar was built in 1960 as the Club Lounge bar which was attached to the Clarmont Inn. In 1999, it was renovated and reopened as the Round Bar. In 2009, the bar closed and it was used by the Comfort Inn next door as a breakfast space for guests. There is a Holiday Inn Express there now. The building may be used as a lobby now. [map]

This Western Reserve Hardware building featured another folded-plate roof. It was probably built in the 1960s. It was demolished around 2018.
