History hasn't always been easy on us. But pressure can create diamonds. Come check out our gems.
It shouldn’t come as a shock to you that yes, we love a good drink now and again (and sometimes again) in this town. Cleveland’s reputation as a craft brewery capital is never in question, but our craft cocktail culture has been similarly thriving for years. Every night, expert bartenders are serving up classic combinations, shaking things up with a new spin or creating brand new elixirs from scratch. So grab a seat, scan the menu and watch the masters at work at these great cocktail spots in The Land.
Grown-up drinking reigns at the Velvet Tango Room, where mixologists are so professional, they measure bitters with an eyedropper. Taste the difference with sophisticated sips like the slightly sweet Tango Manhattan or gin-based French 75, then try to score a seat in the “secret” back room.
At LBM,they like it loud. If heavy metal and Viking vibes are your jam, look no further than this neighborhood joint in Lakewood. Aggressive types can order a Gunslinger (“Bigger, Stronger, Harder”) made with 100-proof whiskey; more reflective folks may enjoy a black-rum based Last Rites of Julia Brown.
Any self-respecting Cleveland Heights resident knows The Fairmount. Ask a regular, and they’ll suggest ordering a heaping helping of truffle fries and the house shot, aka the Verdita (pepper-infused tequila with a mint, cilantro, jalapeño and pineapple chaser). Or Paint it Black, with bourbon and Aztec chocolate bitters might do.
Harkening back to the glamorous “café society” of the early 1900s, Society Lounge is as cultivated a bar as they come. Raise a finely manicured pinky with a Cucumber Gimlet or a circa-1880s New York Sour made with Argentine wine. Need a digestif? Throw back a Rusty Nail.
Don’t give a hoot? Let bartenders do the work at Spotted Owl where cocktails are crafted from a “mood wheel.” Need a stiff one? A barkeep will concoct something from the Reflect group of flavors. Feel like celebrating? They’ll turn to the Rejoice section.
Cleveland's premier speakeasy lounge, serving hand crafted cocktails and premium tapas. Live entertainment and daily specials, this is the place to be.
