Think of it "Essential CLE" your in-the-know online Cleveland concierge. We didn’t want a run-of-the-mill entertainment calendar, or a collection of simple listings. We built it as a guide capable of serving up smart, instant and trusted recommendations for the very best restaurants, bars and things to do in the region.
The Top 10 list here aimed at being an appetizing teaser. There are hundreds more bars reviewed in "Essential CLE, " and searchable in a variety of ways. You can find our top drink and Happy Hour picks in 10 "neighborhoods, " including Downtown, Ohio City, Tremont and University Circle. And you can search by bar type, too. Looking for the best cocktail bars in Northeast Ohio? Or the dance clubs? Or the best happy hours? The answers are in the guide.
The recommendations come from writers and critics at cleveland.com and our partners at The Plain Dealer, folks with with decades of experience covering restaurants, bars and culture in the CLE. They know the city, the region and its secrets. So, we built the database around their picks, with an eye on capturing “The Best of Cleveland.”
We think the “Essential CLE” guide will give you a great roadmap to Cleveland’s booming resrtaurant-and-bar scene and its extraordinary cultural richness.
