Plan your visit
Grab a few friends or your partner for an afternoon or evening of fun and relaxation! Pour your own custom candle using any of our 120+ fragrances, then grab a bite to eat or drink at one of the many local favorites within walking distance. While you are enjoying your meal, your candles will be hard at work cooling and getting ready for you to take home. Stop by the store after to pick them up, or we can even arrange to bring them to you at your restaurant. Have other plans? You are always welcome to pick up your candles another day.
Nearby restaurants, bars, and shops we recommend:
- Bareburger (casual lunch or dinner)
- Barley's Brewing Company (craft beer and food)
- Denmark (cocktails and light bites)
- Kooma (sushi)
- Martini Modern Italian (upscale Italian)
- The North Market (a Columbus original)
- And many more - just ask our in-store team!
