In 1939, shortly after the end of Prohibition, Walter Plank, Sr. saw an opportunity to open a bar in his beloved childhood neighborhood. Walter Plank later entrusted the bar to his two sons, and it was one of those sons, William “Willie” Plank who purchased a nearby restaurant in 1960 and began his own legacy with Planks Bier Garten.

Located in the heart of German Village, Planks offers an outdoor patio, large space for groups, and a place to experience the beauty of one of Columbus’ most historic neighborhoods.

Over 60 years and 3 generations later, we are proud to continue serving our friends and family in the neighborhood we love!
