Clevelander Tips

I n Cleveland, “soda” is referred to as “pop.” If you hear “Burning River” or “Holy Moses,” it’s just someone ordering a craft beer made locally by Great Lakes Brewing Company. Many Clevelanders identify themselves as being either eastsiders or westsiders (the division being the Cuyahoga River), but all seem to claim Downtown.

History

 leveland has a proud history that C is 223 years in the making. General Moses Cleaveland of the Connecticut Land Company came to the Western Reserve and founded the City of Cleveland in 1796. The name changed to its current spelling in 1831 when the “a” was dropped in order to fit the city’s name on a newspaper masthead.

Fun Facts

 leveland is the home of Jerry Siegel C and Joe Shuster, the creators of Superman, as well as a filming location for major motion pictures, including “A Christmas Story,” “The Avengers” and “Captain America 2: The Winter Soldier.” Oscar winners Paul Newman and Halle Berry hail from the region. So does Hall of Fame guitarist, Joe Walsh, who honed his craft with The James Gang in the 1970s with the popular single “Funk #49.” LifeSavers candy, the modern golf ball and the electric streetlight are all Cleveland firsts invented right here in Cleveland.

Location + Population  leveland, located in the Eastern C Standard Time Zone (EST) in the State of Ohio within Cuyahoga County, is on the southern shore of Lake Erie, part of the Great Lakes Region.

I t is the 18th largest metro area and 15th largest consumer market in the United States with 2 million residents in Greater Cleveland metro and nearly 400,000 in the City of Cleveland.

Business

 leveland has a $236 billion annual C economy and is home to a number of companies that are on Fortune magazine’s list of the top 500 industrial and top 500 service companies in the United States, including KeyCorp, Sherwin-Williams, Eaton Corp and Progressive Insurance.

Jam on It Ready to jam? This summer, the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame unveiled The Garage, a hands-on, interactive space that lets visitors fulfill their dreams of rock god status. Aspiring musicians can play on at video-driven practice stations highlighting how to play iconic tunes on guitar, bass, keyboard, or drums; relax in a chilled-out acoustic lounge; and join forces with other visitors to rock out together, garage band-style.

>

Playing the Field(House) Ouicken Loans Arena has a new name— Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse—and a fresh look, courtesy of a $185 million expansion and renovation project. All eyes will be on the buffed-up venue when Cleveland hosts the 2022 NBA All-Star Game, although locals got their first glimpse at the space—which boasts a glass atrium, gathering spaces and a glossy new exterior—at the Black Keys homecoming concert.

>

It Takes a Village Touchdown! Now that the Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium facelift is complete, the Pro Football Hall of Fame Village is turning its attention to the second phase of its nearly $900 million revamp. Officials are hashing out plans to break ground on a waterpark and football-themed hotel, as well as retail/dining options and the Black College Football Hall of Fame. Ideally, expect a kickoff—er, opening—in 2022.

>

Winging It As the Cleveland Museum of Natural History gears up to celebrate its December 2020 centennial, the museum is also finalizing a $150 million expansion plan highlighted by a sparkling new exhibit wing. Appropriately, the proposed building facade touches on the region’s history—namely by nodding to our lakefront location and glacial roots—with a rippled, white roof shaped to resemble ice forms and gentle waves.

From Hong Kong street food favorites like Ball Ball Waffle to real-deal Mexican tacos at Hola Tacos, the city’s newest culinary entries provide a true passport for the palate. For a sit-down experience, top chef Doug Katz of Fire Food & Drink is back at it again with his new Middle Eastern/Israeli restaurant: Zhug. (We’ll let you ask how to pronounce it.) And a new Angie’s Soul Café Carnegie Avenue location has taken over the former Hot Sauce Williams spot—picking up right where the HSW legacy left off with classic down-home favorites.

HELLO, CITY

DOWNTOWN 2.0 IS TAKING SHAPE WITH AN INFLUX OF RESIDENTS AND EXCITING DEVELOPMENTS TO MATCH. By Jen Jones Donatelli

With a slew of residential skyscrapers popping up around Cleveland, the city is poised to hit Downtown Cleveland Alliance’s goal of 20,000 downtown residents by 2020. Currently under construction are the 187-unit The Beacon (featuring expansive views and rooftop digs for dogs), and the 34-story The Lumen (Playhouse Square’s new shining star). In prime position near Public Square will be The Residences at Terminal Tower (within a dice’s throw of JACK Casino), and the reimagined May Company Building (the mixed-use vision of Cavs owner Dan Gilbert).

The Lumen

NEW CENTER OF PRIDE [ By Jen Jones Donatelli ] An anonymous $4.9 million donation sparked a whole new world for the LGBT Community Center of Greater Cleveland, which now has shiny new digs in Detroit Shoreway. Triple the size of its former space, the vibrant new 15,500-square-foot center features a bright atrium, ample multi-purpose space, and expansive windows. (It also earns eco-cred for being LEED-certified.) The center also enables more programming— from health and wellness services to community groups to youth and senior support. Open since June 2019, the new space serves as an important beacon for Greater Cleveland’s LGBTO community.

MOVING THE NEEDLE

Rock & Roll Hall of Fame

FOR THOSE ABOUT TO ROCK By Annie Zaleski Stodgy museums, step to the side: The glass-enclosed Rock & Roll Hall of Fame is a hip-shaking, guitar-flinging reminder of why Cleveland is ground zero for world-famous music. Memorabilia immortalizes the radio DJs and recording artists who invented the genre, and much like rock and roll itself, the multi-level museum just keeps on evolving.

>

Class of 2019 Although the Rock Hall induction ceremony returns to Cleveland in Spring 2020 with all-new inductees, there’s still time to celebrate the Class of 2019 via the museum’s memorabilia-packed exhibit. The newly minted members—including alt-rock gods Radiohead and The Cure; psych-pop legends The Zombies; hard rockers Def Leppard; and glam cult favorites Roxy Music—contributed ephemera such as instruments, photos, clothing, and artwork from their historic careers. Don’t miss colorful costumes from pop goddess Stevie Nicks and R&B legend Janet Jackson, which loom especially larger than life.

>

Play It Loud: Instruments of Rock & Roll After opening to great fanfare at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art in early 2019, the “Play It Loud: Instruments of Rock & Roll” exhibit leaves the Big Apple and touches down at the Rock Hall in November. While the Cleveland version will likely have some differences from the Met’s display—which boasted hitmaker guitars from Hendrix and Prince, among others—fans can still expect to see up-close glimpses of some of music’s most iconic and colorful instruments, spanning generations and genres.

Don’t call it a [vinyl] comeback— Cleveland’s record shops have been around for years. Cases in point: Ohio City’s A Separate Reality, which boasts 200,000+ used records (repping the era between the ‘60s and ‘90s), or Gordon Square’s Hausfrau Record Shop, which lets you listen before locking in your purchase. For that punk, metal, and rock fix, visit Lakewood-based My Mind’s Eye, or tread on classics atop an LP-covered floor at Waterloo’s Blue Arrow. Indie label Cleveland International Records is also back in the stacks with its recent reissue of a 13-track “Cleveland Rocks” compilation straight outta the ‘70s. Wax on!

Zoma Ethiopian Restaurant

FOOD KNOWS NO BORDERS By Mary Mihaly

>

Zoma Ethiopian Restaurant Check your pretense at the door at Cleveland Heights-based Zoma Ethiopian Restaurant, where hands trump silverware. Scoop your beef stew with chunks of flatbread; order food with exotic names like kitfo or qunata firfir; or try a sambusa (lentil-filled pastry) and wash it all down with sweet Ethiopian honey wine.

>

Zaytoon Lebanese Kitchen Named for the Arabic word for “olive,” Zaytoon Lebanese Kitchen in Playhouse Square is a hit with the Downtown lunch crowd for its fresh, innovative dishes. Newbies can stick with traditional foods like hummus or baba ganouj, while more exploratory eaters can choose their own adventure at the falafel or shawarma bars. (P.S. Baklava for dessert is practically a requirement.)

>

India Garden Helpful hint to the uninitiated: be sure to allot a few minutes at Lakewood’s India Garden to take in the long lists of curries, vindaloos and kabobs. Your best bet? The massive lunch buffet, offered seven days a week. There’s even a happy hour of sorts—snag specials on Vegan Mondays or Chicken-n-Lamb Thursdays.

>

Barroco The best way to describe the eclectic menu at Barroco’s three locations is “street-inspired South American.” Order from an array of grilled, stuffed arepas—from braised beef to buffalo chicken—and finish with caramel custard flan. No shortage of options here…they even have nine different versions of plantains! New to this type of cuisine? Lucky you, as the menu comes replete with cheat sheet.

>

Irie Jamaican Kitchen Channel your best Bob Marley at Collinwood’s Irie Jamaican Kitchen and prepare to start humming “One Love.” The chef grew up in Jamaica so he knows jerk, that uniquely Jamaican seasoning for chicken, beef or seafood. Order “Jahpotle” and build your own wrap or bowl, and don’t leave without sipping some delicious sorrel.

2019-20 FALL/WINTER Official Visitors Guide

Built as an ode to U.S. President James A. Garfield, the city’s first steel frame skyscraper housed banks such as Guardian Savings & Trust and National City Bank for over 90 years. Today the building—which boasts original touches like a large marble staircase— houses the aptly named, upscale Marble Room steakhouse. Over the bridge at Ohio City’s Crop Bistro, diners can’t decide which is more impressive—the restaurant’s massive arched windows, bank vault-slashparty room or its locally sourced menu. In Tremont, Zagat-rated Dante serves up “New American” cuisine inside a historic bank building that retains its grandeur.

SHAKE IT UP

SWILL AND CHILL AT THESE COOL CLEVELAND COCKTAIL BARS. [ By Rebecca Ferlotti ] Society Lounge Inspired by elite Manhattanites and world travelers of yesteryear, Society Lounge brings a swanky vibe to Cleveland. Classic handcrafted cocktails repping the 1860s through 1940s intermingle with originals like 4th St. Sour (a rosemaryinfused vodka and Argentine wine concoction). Order some gin-roasted olives to pair with your spirits and party like Prohibition just ended.

SIP ON VINTA GE COCKTAILS AT VTR

Velvet Tango Room Gritty with a side of class, Velvet Tango Room has plenty of space to unwind and enjoy a handcrafted cocktail (not to mention a two-hole putting green and live jazz trio). Hit up VTR on a Friday or Saturday, when the always dressedto-impress owner Paulius Nasvytis flambés bananas foster tableside.

The Spotted Owl House rules say no kissing in this Tremont hipster-chic bar, but arguing is encouraged. Choose from their cocktail wheel based on your mood—rejoice with something bubbly or reflect with a dark and smoky drink. Curated shot-and-beer pairings round out the inventive libation lineup.

Porco Keeping the Polynesian cocktail tradition alive, this tiki lounge serves drinks like the Zombie (brought to you smoking), as well as a shareable —or not—alcoholic Hawaiian punch drink called the Scorpion Bowl. If you’re a one-drink kind of person, try Tiki Bob’s Concussion and, perhaps literally, knock yourself out.

GE T CO ZY W IT H A TR IB UTARY CO CKTA IL

Tributary Upon entering this reclaimed bar (circa the 1870s) in Gordon Square, patrons are greeted with a “Cheers”-esque vibe, but cooler. With plenty of seasonal spirits and Tributary’s takes on classics, there’s no excuse not to head there right after work each night.

Southern comfort kicked up a notch, this duallocation soul food restaurant’s menu is nothing short of mouth-watering— featuring staples from catfish fingers to collard greens.

In this meat-and-potatoes town, we deliver on the first half of the equation with foodie-favorite neighborhood butcher shops. Take the “lady butchers” of Saucisson, for instance, who built a fan following at farmers’ markets before launching their beloved brick-and-mortar in Slavic Village. (Little wonder they were recently named to the Travel Channel’s “Zimmern List.”) Over in Hingetown, a former firehouse plays home to Larder —an Eastern European deli helmed by Cleveland culinary darling and James Beard semifinalist Jeremy Umansky. EDWINS Butcher Shop is the newest entry to the ever-growing list of Cleveland butcher shops, as a retail-shop-slash-lunchhotspot that doubles as the Buckeye neighborhood’s first fresh meat vendor in almost 50 years.

Featuring scratch-made classics with a modern twist (like buttermilk fried chicken and red velvet waffles), Southern Café infuses a little soul into Cleveland’s west side.

Fat Head’s Brewery landed bronze for Midnight Moonlight, a roasty, dank black IPA, while Ohio City’s Market Garden Brewery scored silver for its crisp pre-Prohibition lager, Nano OG. Meanwhile, relative newcomer Masthead Brewing Company—whose Downtown taproom is just two years old—garnered gold for Midwest Red IPA, a copper-hued brew balancing smooth caramel malt and piney hops.

WAREHOUSE DISTRICT

The 52-story Terminal Tower splits the Cleveland skyline like a towering cloud buster. It’s rightfully a city symbol. At the tower’s base is the renovated Regional Transit Authority’s light rail system. Inside is the ornate Tower City Center, home to a retail mall, food court, cinema and a rich selection of hotels and restaurants. Next door is the gambler’s paradise, JACK Cleveland Casino, taking bets daily in the historic Higbee Building on Public Square.

If you’re going to brave that cute, black, cocktail dress (fab, btw), then we suggest you take your entourage to the Warehouse District. Explore club life, upscale eating options and valet parking on West 6th, West 9th and West St. Clair (spots like the Nauti Mermaid, Blue Point Grille and Barley House). The historic warehouses that give this district its name are also home to posh renovated condos and lofts. Young urban socialites live above; Cleveland nightlife buzzes below.

THE FLATS The Flats used to be Cleveland party headquarters in the ‘80s and ‘90s. But things have changed…for the better. Today, The Flats is again bustling, but now the east bank is reinvented around big businesses in the EY office tower, apartments, the trendy Aloft Hotel, restaurants and entertainment like Punch Bowl Social, Thirsty Dog Brewery and Margaritaville, and a 1,000-foot boardwalk along the Cuyahoga River. The Nautica Entertainment Complex (on the west bank) has reintroduced family fun to the area with the Greater Cleveland Aquarium, Jacobs Pavilion and the Nautica Queen cruise ship. Plus, nearby Music Box Supper Club offers a solid line-up of river views, casual fine dining and live music. 216.665.6613 | flatseast.com |

CIVIC CENTER DISTRICT The heart of business and government is found in the Civic Center, home to historic government and community buildings, public art, gardens and fountains and hotels and banks. The highlight of the area is a threeblock-long outdoor Mall, containing beautiful pedestrian walkways that stretch from the heart of Downtown to the lakefront bluffs. Below the Mall is Cleveland’s new Convention Center attached to the above ground Global Center for Health Innovation and Hilton Cleveland Downtown. Civic Center District

GATEWAY DISTRICT

NINETWELVE & AVENUE DISTRICTS

Those who are directionally-challenged needn’t worry: Smack in front of the city (you can’t possibly miss it), two big stadiums – Progressive Field and Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse – host Cleveland Indians baseball, Cleveland Cavaliers basketball, Cleveland Monsters hockey, Cleveland Gladiators arena football and national tours from Jay Z to Disney on Ice. But be warned: Surrounding pubs and brewpubs offer sanctuary for fans coping with both big wins and epic losses.

One of Cleveland’s bustling business hubs, the NineTwelve District (between East 9th and East 12th Streets) is attracting as many tourists as tailored suits these days. The public catch rays at renovated Perk Park — home to food trucks on Walnut Wednesdays — while craft beer drinkers toast to new brewpubs, Masthead and Noble Beast, and sightseers seek out the Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland’s Learning Center and Money Museum.

CAMPUS DISTRICT College kids know how to have fun, so why not crash the party and maybe learn a thing or two? Cleveland State University and Cuyahoga Community College Metro Campus is just east of Downtown, and its mix of arts, bars, cafes and campus life is both entertaining and educational. Plus, Cleveland State’s Wolstein Center hosts the Cleveland State University Vikings basketball team, special events and awesome A-list concerts.

Must-Do Things

Foodies and fans of craft beer call Ohio City’s Market District their urban oasis. Just across the Cuyahoga River, west of Downtown, the city’s yellow-bricked West Side Market has been home to haggle-friendly meat, seafood and veggie vendors for more than 100 years, but it’s Ohio City’s Victorian-era homes, boutique eateries and famous craft brewers (like Great Lakes Brewing Co.) that have made it one of the city’s symbols for urban renewal (where hip meets heritage). But its coolest locale might be the entrepreneurial and arty district of Hingetown, which “hinges” Market District and Gordon Square Arts District into Ohio City.

Must-Do Things

This blue-collar neighborhood balances Cleveland’s big city feel with cozy, small town charm. Minutes from Downtown, Tremont is one of Cleveland’s oldest communities, and for all we know, might just be stuck in time. Just look at those old cottages, bygone neighborhood bars, beautiful churches and cordial local characters. Look closer and notice those come-as-you-are bars are sandwiched between Food Network-famous restaurants, art galleries and even a pop culture monument (A Christmas Story House and Museum).

If University Circle is Cleveland’s international art capital, Gordon Square Arts District (along the Detroit Shoreway) is the city’s bohemian quarter. Institutions like the Cleveland Public Theatre and the Capitol Theatre draw the terminally arty and interesting to local stages and indie cinema. The hip and hungry seek out bistros and bars from Happy Dog to Spice Kitchen + Bar, and urban greenery like the lakefront’s Edgewater Park attracts everyone from dog-walkers to desperate surfboarders, while Gordon Square’s old homes and elegant mansions create a stately backdrop.

The party moves to Kamm’s Corners after the Downtown parade on St. Patrick’s Day. Irish pubs attract barflies with Gaelic football, rugby and live Celtic music, while walkers explore hobby shops, the Kamm’s Corners’ Sunday Farmers Market and the historic Alger Cemetery, resting place of Oswald Kamm (that guy the community’s named after). Nestled between Downtown and the airport, it’s a great locale to grab a Guinness or eat everything from Irish to Italian.

1. Listen to live music at area pubs and bars, including P.J. McIntyre’s, Smedley’s Bar & Grille, West Park Station and Red Lantern. 2.

Just be prepared to argue over where to eat (Balaton or Zanzibar Soul Fusion), where to shop (Fashions by Fowler or Cosmic Bobbins) and where to have fun (Atlas Cinemas Shaker Square).

Even opposites — say, punk rockers vs. theater geeks — call Cleveland an entertainment epicenter. Massive attractions like the Pro Football Hall of Fame, the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and Playhouse Square (the second largest theater district in America) draw millions of varied visitors a year. Choose from family-focused adventures at Downtown’s Greater Cleveland Aquarium or Great Lakes Science Center or try adults-only merrymaking via the JACK Cleveland Casino or Hilarities 4th Street Theatre. Yet, it’s often the out-of-the-box options — concerts at the Beachland Ballroom, presidential history at Lake View Cemetery, or cutting-edge art at the Museum of Contemporary Art — that keep day-trippers coming back for more.

KIDDING AROUND

NORTHEAST OHIO’S AMUSEMENT PARKS, RECREATION ZONES AND MUSEUMS ARE JUST A SHORT MINIVAN RIDE AWAY.

A FRIGHT TO REMEMBER> During HalloWeekends, Cedar Point’s usual thrills mix with spine-tingling chills. From September 14 through October 27, the screams aren’t just relegated to the park’s 18 rollercoasters — as HalloWeekends transform the Sandusky-based amusement park with haunted houses and scare zones. Prefer tamer fun for the whole family? Take part in The Great Pumpkin Fest, when kids can trickor-treat with the Peanuts gang and make their way through creative mazes.

FOSSIL-FUELED > No bones about it: the upcoming “Ultimate Dinosaurs” exhibit is worth a visit to the Cleveland Museum of Natural History (November 29-June 7). These aren’t your average T-Rexes and pterosaurs, but instead unfamiliar breeds of dinosaurs from South America, Africa and Madagascar. On weekends, don’t miss the planetarium show “One World, One Sky: Big Bird’s Adventure,” which transports tykes from Sesame Street to the moon.

A DEEP-DIVE INTO FUN> There are plenty of fish in the sea, as evidenced by the newly renovated Greater Cleveland Aquarium. Eight galleries and 50+ exhibits provide a periscopelike perspective on the life aquatic. Get handsy in the 11,000-gallon touch pool, or watch aquarists feed archerfish, sharks, or gamefish (depending on the day). Certified divers can also go swimming with sharks—literally—via Shark Dive CLE.

TINY HANDS, BIG FUN> One of Cleveland’s most beloved museums, the Children’s Museum of Cleveland found new life in Millionaire’s Row’s historic Stager-Beckwith mansion in 2017. Thanks to a $10 million renovation, the new location boasts three times the exhibit space — and the museum is making the most of it with seven current exhibits, including the new Meadow (for infants), Playlist (music and movement) and Theater (dramatic play).

BECAUSE, SCIENCE.> Big fun awaits at Great Lakes Science Center’s new “Curiosity Carnival” exhibit (November 15-February 17), where kids will be astounded by amazing feats of physics and entertained by midway games and more. In addition to the center’s usual mix of immersive exhibits—such as the totfriendly Polymer Funhouse—the Cleveland Clinic DOME Theater boasts a six-story screen and the world’s first giant dome projection system.

DOWN ON THE FARM > Old MacDonald would approve of Lake Metroparks Farmpark — where kids can milk cows, hang with baby foals and watch sheep being shorn. (Plus, pony rides and a playground!) Snag a spot on the sell-out Halloween Hayrides (October 11-12, 18-19, 25-26), or ignite your holiday spirit at “Country Lights” (November 29-30). Illuminated trees form the backdrop for a wagon ride through the farm, after which attendees can view model trains and admire the Holiday Horses.

Donut Fest

Get social with #This iscle

HOLE-Y GRAIL > Clevelanders dig their donuts, and at the annual Donut Fest (February 8 at Red Space), we celebrate them all — glazed, doughy and deep-fried. Get a quarter-donut sample from each exhibitor, paired with samples from the city’s best coffee shops for that coveted all-in-one sugar and caffeine rush. RETURN OF THE MAC > Whether you prefer your mac-and-cheese gourmet-style or straight outta the box, you’ll find a new local favorite at the Mac ‘N Cheese Throwdown (February 22 at Cleveland Public Auditorium). Go all Bubba Gump and try it with lobster, pulled pork, BBQ brisket or dozens of other combos, then make your case for first place. ICE, ICE, BABY > At the Ice Wine Festival (March 7, 14, 21), five Grand River Valley wineries join forces to showcase their best ice wine (made from grapes that hang on the vines until they’re frozen) alongside paired appetizers and souvenir glasses. Extras like jewelry shows and ice carvings round out the frozen fun. MEAD IN CLEVELAND > Although mead is made from honey, it’s not always sweet. Sparkling or still, dry or sugary, you’ll taste every take at the Ohio Mead Festival (April 4 at Skidmark Garage). All meads at this fest are artisan-crafted and made in Ohio, plus food trucks, music and bottles for sale — all supporting local nonprofit Motogo. SUGAR RUSH > It’s a sure harbinger of spring: the Geauga County Maple Festival (April 23-26). Come for the all-you-can-eat Pancakes in the Park, and stay for the arts and crafts show, bathtub races, lumberjack tournaments and beard & mustache competition. (Feeling motivated?

CHRISTMAS ALE | GREAT LAKES BREWING CO. > Cue the thirsty throngs, who clamor each year for that first taste of Christmas Ale — and for good reason.

The nutmeg and cinnamon hit right off the bat, but the honey finish only tames the spice, rather than overpowering it. HOLLY JOLLY | FAT HEAD’S > Now here’s a feat of strength for you: Fat Head’s Holly Jolly hits the palate like a traditional spiced winter ale crossed with Santa’s workshop, without making you think of a cloying gingerbread cookie. MERRY XMAS YA FILTHY ANIMAL HANSA BREWERY > Cleveland’s resident German beer hall rings in the holiday season with this powerful Belgian Quad aged in whiskey barrels. And with a 15% ABV, this “Home Alone” homage might leave you making a Macaulay Culkin face. 8 CRAZY NIGHTS | COLLISION BEND > If you celebrate Hanukkah, you’re in luck—Collision Bend has one of the few local brews highlighting the Festival of Lights. Not celebrating Hanukkah? You can order one anyway— and you should (or risk missing out on this standout apple-and-clove amber).
