Boma should change its name to BOGA for suddenly going from Bar of Modern Art to "Bar of Ghetto Art".

Honestly, they advertise on Power 107, which is a ghetto hip hop and rap station. The people who listen to this include ghetto trash, drug dealers and the occasional preppy white person who think's he's a drug dealer (or may only be a petty college drug dealer) and their "hoes".

There is nothing good about this place except the fact that it was once a beautiful looking church. I'm sure whatever Gods this place once catered to must have long abandoned it...

Pros: The mysterious, "gothic" church look.

Cons: The ghetto filth inside

Boma use to be a really fun place to go. We went there in April for a friends Birthday her and I had several shots when we first walked in the door and about a half hr later we didnt even have a buzz so we just kept doing more & more shots. I would say we prob. done close to 15shots a peice and when we left that night we were walking straight . Which means they were not putting much liquer in are shots and the shots are about $7 a peice . We both weigh under 120 so at any other bar we would have been barely walking. In July I called and got VIP for my fiance birthday come to find out the main floor wasn't even open which makes no scense to me. So we had to hang out on the patio all night where the D.J ONLY played tecno music and when I req. something else he said sure no problem but never played any of my request. Just last Sat my friends went and said they had a terrible time she said again they only played tecno and the crowed was very different & diverse. I wont go back to Boma because I dont like tecno and I like to get atleast buzzed if I'm paying that much for drinks .

Pros: Fun Atmosphere

Cons: drinks / music

I have been to many bars and restaurants in the Columbus area and I have to say I was very disappointed with BOMA. The food and drinks were overpriced for what we got and the drinks barely had alcohol, even the "martinis". We also waited 45 minutes for our food to arrive after ordering. Don't waste your time on this bar when there are so many other great places to try in Columbus!

I've read reviews on here and in local publications that likened BOMA to clubs in Miami. I'm from Miami, and I can assure you that BOMA is nowhere near the clubs on Washington and Lincoln in Miami Beach (not to mention the warehouse district!). BOMA falls WAY short of what Miami has to offer. That aside, BOMA pretends to be a lot of things they're not. They have a red velvet rope and a doorman with a clipboard, but to get in the club all you have to do is get in line and file in (like every other club in Columbus). There's no picking the most beautiful people from the crowd - if you're in line, you will get in (which is totally how it should be - this is Columbus). But it's kind of a poser move to try and act like it's exclusive when it's not.

The art is a mixed bag. Some is better than others. I'm not going to rag on the art - it's cool to see it up and I'm glad the artists are getting exposure. However, it's really not a hip gallery atmosphere. The good thing is that they do rotate the art regularly.

The music on the main floor is TERRIBLE, unless you like that remixed Top-40 bump and grind s***. The basement area (which is closed during the summer - whaaa?) has way better music, but it also depends on who the DJ is. Regardless, it's WAY better than what's going on upstairs. Mostly trance and house. People actually know how to dance in the basement, instead of the grinding that's going on upstairs.

The clientele is pretty mixed. There's the usual super plastic "better than everyone because I'm carrying a [fake] Louis Vuitton bag" kind of girl (and the guy that's impressed by that), the hip chics and dudes (who know how to dress and dance, thankfully), and then the people who just came to see what it's all about. I've also heard quite a bit of snorting in the bathroom stalls if you know what I mean.

Overall, BOMA is just okay. The basement area and the overall awesome decor saves it from sucking.

Pros: Tastefully decorated

Cons: Posers and music

This place is an embarrassment for Columbus. For the general public and especially the art community. Any artist who shows here or patronizes this venue, that makes a mockery of gallery culture, should be ashamed. Trend-chasers and wannabe hipsters, please proceed to the generic velvet rope and befriend the pompous blowhard working the door. You'll feel dirty, but comfortable. Boma will be miserable to any self-respecting person.

Pros: Pretty building

Exceptional in every aspect, food, dancing, drinks. I think a few people here just had a bad experience. Bartenders are friendly (and good-looking), drinks are strong and reasonably priced, I've always had a great time here. Make sure you check out the white-leather room (think they call it the Great Room, and aptly so), and the view of the dancing from the balcony.

Cons: Umm....none

The worst service ever! I sent several emails in regard to our experience & they did not even care enough to respond! It took 3 hours to get our meal. We called ahead for reservations & they seated us in the middle of a walkway. Our waiter quit in the middle of our dinning experience. When we asked if the bartender can make an apple martini (pretty basic drink); The waiters response was " is it on the menu". What a horrible excuse for an "upscale restaurant". They are positively the most pretentious people. That attitude will not work in Columbus. When we finally got our food it was cold. The birthday that we were celebrating was to receive a dessert. It NEVER came.

I had dinner with several friends Wed. night, my first time at BoMA. Went in with high expectations and was not disappointed. Our waiter was personable, knowledgeable and attentive. Wine selection was not great (like S&W or Burgundy Room), but good enough and quite reasonably priced. Menu choices were interesting and diverse to satisfy everyone; maybe a little heavy on seafood choices, which was fine with me. Food was high quality, artistically plated and absolutely delicious. Not a single one of us had any complaints with appetizers, salads or entrees. My wild salmon was done to perfection. We also succumbed to the desserts. Fire & Ice - awesome. No one should be concerned about the location - parking is plentiful and easy easy easy, especially with the availability of valet parking. When we finished dinner, we enjoyed the salsa music and dancing on the main floor and explored the other bar/seating areas. I highly recommend BoMA as a great alternative to the rather boring in comparison high end restaurants in town.

I had a wonderful time at BoMA. I took my father out for dinner for his birthday and the waitstaff took excellent care of us. Our server Nick, I remember because my brother shares the same name. He was constantly attentive and always inquiring of our needs. I had the most succulent salmon I've ever tasted. The chef fused some usual but wonderful flavors together like bloodorange on the salmon. I've been to BoMA before for other functions including some fundraisers and I remember how the rooms always looked so elegant. The room with all the white leather furniture was especially gorgeous. They have drink there called the French Wh*re that's scrumptious (this website won't let me spell the word). My bartender even made me a second one at no cost when someone knocked my drink over. Hi highly recommend this place if your looking to go somewhere unusual with a great atmosphere. This would be a very romantic place too.

Pros: Great service, wonderful food, love the new art

Cons: really big space, hard to fill up with people

Never eaten here or been at any other time besides Fri or Sat night. As a club I think this place is fun, the most fun out of places I've been in Columbus. It's big and roomy. Dance floor is large and doesn't get uncomfortably packed. Lighting effects are cool. Music is good, not too much hip hop and some trancy types of songs. Sometimes this place has a good number of people but occasionally it has been dead, so I've come to not rely on it. I like it a lot more than Arena places, namely Sugar and especially Spice. The crowd has been better here IMO. Staff seems ok, I haven't had probs with them or the bars. Prices are all right, typical of columbus. Bouncer seems ok, I don't know why people are complaining about him. When this place has a crowd it's hands down my fav columbus hotspot. Try it out.

Having eaten at BoMA for the first time, I am unimpressed. I doubt I will return anytime soon.

First of all, the service is terrible. Our waiter was almost nonexistant. Expect to spend long interminable periods sitting around wondering where your drinks, food, and bill are.

Second, the place doubles as a club at night, which I understand, but they turn on the music at like...8pm; when there isn't even any clubgoers there yet. It's extremely irritating when you're trying to enjoy a meal in a supposedly nice restaurant and you have to yell at the person sitting across from you.

On top of that, the entrees are are typically about $20-25 a plate, and what you actually get for that is very underwhelming. More than likely you will leave hungry if you came with any sort of appetite.

If you want trendy food, a quiet place to dine and have a conversation with your table mates, this is the place for you. Be prepared to spend $8 on each mixed drink and at least $20 on each main course. The hostess was downright rude when she found out we didn't have reservations; however, it's not like the place was packed. The actual waitstaff was pleasent, professional and prompt. The chef sent out complimentary appetizers to start the evening out. While I wouldn't go on a weekly basis, I would certainly think about it when I was in the mood for fine dining. It's on the same plane as M

I like the club.I love the staff, well most of them.Mr Starker you could be a little on the stand off mood at times.But I find the club to be awsome.I hope the people can get the concept of the dress code for you.The music is good most of the time. Wish people would dance when on the dance floor instead of standing on it and talking and drinking, after all it is called a dance floor for a reason.I find most are really enjoying themselfs and making new friends.I know I have and I love meeting new people.The door men seem to get a lot of bad rap, But remember their just doing what they are told by managment,so go a little easy on them ok.I wish the club all the best.Im sure your spring and summer will be a big hit.So best wishes from ME.

I've been to this place twice - once at dance club time and once at restaurant time - and was underimpressed with both.
Let's start with the dance club:
I don't know where the bouncers think they're from, but if it's Columbus, that's an insult to Columbus. They were rude to everyone I know who has been to this club. They even told one guy that he was "dressed a little too hip hop," but that he'd let him in this time. He didn't even specify no sneakers, no hats, no baggy shirts...
Oh thanks well in return, I think you look a little too ethnocentric and stuck up, but we'll come in and buy some drinks anyway.
Then inside the bar, there was boring pop music playing and the art was ok but there wasn't anything grabbing my attention. I will give them this: the cover isn't bad if you go before midnight, the rest of the interior was pretty cool (there were three different bars, a big dance floor, pretty furniture) and they have some good drinks that weren't badly priced.
Then, on Valentine's Day, I made the mistake of eating at their restaurant, where, for this special occasion, you couldn't order from the regular menu, but instead had to get their special four course meal at 75 bucks a pop. They never told us this when we were making reservations, and acted as if we shouldn't be surprised when we got there.
The food was fancy, but not 75 dollars worth of fancy, and I've eaten at the Peppercorn Duck Club (when that still existed), Bexley Monk, Haiku, Dragonfly, etc, all of which I would give good reviews. THEN, the kitchen messed up our order and we ended up staying there 3 hours.
So, what I gather is it's an OK dance club that could be great if it found better music, dressed up the interior a little more, and fired or at least retrained its bouncers; a lousy restaurant; and overall a place that's trying harder to be exlusive and snobby than it's trying to be a good source of food, atmosphere, and entertainment.

Pros: food and drinks, interior

Cons: rude staff, price

Boma is not a bar, as the trendy clever title would indicate. It is also, however, not a club. If it was, it would be called Coma. Ironically, it should be called Coma because after my first and last trip to this terrible place, I wished that I was in a Coma. Real clubs in places like NYC, Vegas, South Beach and LA have incredibly polite staff, and Coma had just the opposite. The bouncer was downright rude to me and my entire party, numerous times. The scene was pathetic. VIP was way too crowded and getting a drink was impossible. This isn't how VIP worked in Vegas. The dress code was non existent...Saturday night and you'd have girls in black dresses looking hot (reason I gave it a 2) next to guys wearing anything from Suits to Allen Iverson jerserys and backwards baseball hats. SERIOUSLY! I hear that anywhere from $1 million to $4 million went into this place...HA! Someone should be put into a Coma over that! My guess is they put $200,000 into the "bar" and bought 3 $1,000,000 pieces of art. And I bet the art is awful, too. I will never return to Coma.

I loved the physical building, the art work and all the people that worked there. I was especailly happy to see valet and coat check (two things I feel EVERY club needs) The music wasn't great. The crowd also left a lot to be desired. The night I was there it seemed to be filled with people in their early thirties, trying desparately to be cool and failing.

But, overall, it has potential to be a great club. I look forward to giving it another chance in the future.

BOMA is a combination of a modern art museum and hipster bar housed in a renovated church. Created by Tom Starker a former studio 54 bouncer, the church's convoluted architectural scheme gives it a different vibe in every room. The art is mostly contemporary ranging from graffiti to celebrity paintings and will likely be changing as time goes on. The crowd is about as close to the NY city hipster set as I have ever seen in Columbus. Drinks are modestly priced and the doormen still recognize they are in Columbus. The combination of the above is in the best physical space for a bar or club that I have ever been to here or anywhere else. While that may shock many LA, NY or more worldly readers as someone who has lived in both those cities I have no problem guarantying this as one of the best nightclubs you will ever find in Columbus.

Cons: Bar Service leaves a lot to be desired. Stop by another bar before if you plan on drinking.
