Cleveland’s got no shortage of happy hours. Starting at around 4 p.m. during the week, Downtown Cleveland is bustling with post-work revelers looking for an office escape. But sometimes — especially when you travel — you’re looking for HH that goes beyond draft specials and discounted apps. Thankfully, Cleveland’s also got happy hours that’ll fill your brain and feed your buzz. And for that, you’re welcome.
On the first Friday of each month, MIX at CMA transforms the Cleveland Museum of Art into a nightclub for art aficionados. Sip an artfully-created cocktail to the stylings of a live DJ and get lost inside the museum’s massive collection.
Arrive early for happy hour, enjoy a performance by the Cleveland Orchestra, then stay for a post-concert party during the Fridays@7 Concert Series (select dates). Bonus: we’re pretty certain there’s no place in town more beautiful to sip a cocktail than Severance Hall.
The city’s brainiest happy hour takes place once monthly from October through May at the Cleveland Museum of Natural History. Highlighting various science topics, Think and Drink with the Extinct offers the chance to sip, nosh and explore the museum alongside professional staff and researchers.
Get educated with the help of 5,000+ underwater sea creatures all while tipping back a few a few adult beverages at one of the city’s most popular attractions for kids — sans the kids. Throughout the year, the Greater Cleveland Aquarium hosts Adult Swim, an after-hours adults-only party featuring one-of-a-kind beverage tasting opportunities.
History class is about to get amped up a few notches thanks to The Western Reserve Historical Society, which operates the Cleveland History Center. Check out History on Tap where happy hour guests can sip beer, wine and cocktails while getting a deep-dive into an ever-changing lineup of important Cleveland historical topics. Better yet, the locations change based on the topic.
Although Yuri’s Night: Space Party is more “event” and less “happy hour,” we feel like it deserves a mention. After all, you’re bound to get an education during this once-a-year, adults-only fundraising fete at the Great Lakes Science Center. Leave your ball gowns at home, though, Yuri’s Night encourages outer space/science fiction-themed costumes as you dance, drink and explore the science center’s exhibits.
