Tea. Drinks. and Food that Speaks

Welcome to Asterisk in Uptown Westerville

Exclusive - but Inclusive



Asterisk is a throwback tribute to when times were slower and when friends and neighbors would gather around the supper table.

When you walk in…

you’ll immediately feel as though you are stepping back in time… to a very sophisticated establishment in a very cool moment in time.

Throughout the years of prohibition, Westerville, Ohio was known for being the “Dry Capitol of the World.” In 1859, Westerville became one of the first American cities to prohibit the sale of alcohol. In 1913 the Anti-Saloon League of America, headquartered in Westerville, held a convention in Columbus, Ohio to campaign against the consumption of alcohol. With the support of John D. Rockefeller, and others like him, the League succeeded in drafting and implementing the 18th Amendment of the Constitution of the United States, establishing prohibition.

Megan Ada (Owner) wanted to find a way to pull beauty from this rich history. Megan’s, along with her mother’s, Laurie Ada, interior design talents, goal was to create a unique atmosphere that our guests would never forget.
