I use to love the Matchbox and I'm recognizing a lot of names on this forum of people that use to hang out there. I'm not gonna mention any names, but from the looks of things they've never grown up....in and out of jail, doing and selling drugs and so on.

Used to be the happenest spot in this town. If you didn't start out there you ended up there. Then this flaming douche bag bought it. What a complete dickhead. He thinks he is so high and mighty. Don't serve our kind. Fuck him. He has his chosen crowd in there and still has just as much drama. He just ain't making no money off of the bar. I was told he slings more dope than April did but to the high and mighty,like himself. Great cover up for him. Too bad he is such an ass. Nice location just moron ran.

Me and my friends used to go there once a week for karaoke hosted by Michael T. Those were fun times.
Now I here the place is run down or something.
The owner should call bar rescue. I bet John Taffer would fix that place up.

Matchbox was my spot ! Every weekend Friday and Saturday after work. I lived there on weekends and then it go over ran by trashy Columbus trash blacks.Drugs in and out ! What a shame .I haven't been in any bar since it shut down . That place is lame now ! All the bars in roundtown are crappy but if I had to choose it would be Gios. I'm over the bar scene since matchbox is gone.

People can call it trashy but everyone went there you didn't have to do drugs some people just went there to dance and drink after hours! It was absolutely trashy but also a lot of fun!

I never seen the drugs ,I'm positive they were there ,like they are in most bars but no one ever came up and said hey you want to buy some drugs. That was my home on the weekends. Friday and Saturday night.8pm to 2am sometimes later.I loved that place.
