Fun Cleveland spot for billiards, beer and wine

I will be in Cleveland on Saturday and plan to visit the Rock & Roll HOF during the day. It is supposed to be cold & rainy. Does anyone know of a good place to hang out in the evening after dinner for a little pool, beer and wine? Not really looking for a dive bar.

  1. Bar Cento/Bier Markt/Speakeasy? It's three separate concepts all connected and sharing the same management.

    Bar Cento is an Italian wine bar with pizza and a small menu of Italian inspired food. They also have a few items intended to complement Belgian beer. You can order any of that next door at the Bier Markt which has an extensive beer list beyond just Belgian. Speakeasy just opened recently. It's only open on the weekends. It features Prohibition era inspired cocktails.

    Anyway, Bier Markt has one pool table. I think I saw someone use it once so I assume it's in proper working order but also that you won't have to fight for it. On the other hand, I hardly ever go there on Saturday nights.
