The majestic Victorian building that houses the The Columbia bar stands as a visual surprise among the more standardized buildings in this peaceful area. Looks however, belie the fact that The Columbia dates back to the 19th Century and is probably the oldest in Phoenixville. During this time, the faithful watering hole has seen the town go from glory to decline and back again, and it has weathered on. It's no wonder that patrons can still feel the history of the place despite the fact that the interiors have been renovated. If you're not much for history though, it's still a good bet with a excellent selection of American grilled specialties with some classics that have stood the test of time. The bar menu features a diverse spirit list with cocktails, martinis and more to satiate most tastes. A must visit when in Phoenixville.
