Happy Hour in Downtown Cleveland

  • 2

I'll be in town on Tuesday. I've done a bit of searching and it seems I'll be heading over to Slyman's for a Corned Beef sandwich (I'd like to be prepared. What is on this sandwich? Due to allergies, I cannot do dairy or rye. Thanks:-)

Now, where should I go for dinner? I dine alone and prefer Happy Hour as its cheaper and I like to sample so apps need to be included. I'm not much of a drinker. I'll be staying near Tower City and will be walking. THANKS!

  1. Flying Fig has some good happy hour items. They also have some "small plates" on their regular menu which are also a good way to taste several different things without spending too much. Flying Fig also just happens to be one of the best restaurants in the city. The walk is about 1.5mi so it's a hike but that's less than the walk to Slyman's. There's also the Red Line. It leaves from Tower City and will drop you off a block from the Fig.

    1. Regarding Slyman's - the bread of choice for corned beef is of course rye, but they have other options available for you. I don't think dairy will be an issue, but you should of course ask.

      If you want to stay downtown for dinner, I'd check out East Fourth Street. My first choice for awesome happy hour at the bar is The Greenhouse Tavern. To see another out-of-towner who did well there at Happy Hour - check out this gentleman's pix: http://www.flickr.com/photos/kaszeta/.... You do not need to drink alcohol to enjoy Happy Hour at the Greenhouse! The cuisine ranges from a top-notch, local, grass fed meat burger to more adventurous items, and I've yet to have a bad one. The space itself is pretty neat, too - virtually everything in the house is recycled.

      I do not know whether Chinato offers a Happy Hour, but it is also worth a stop. If Asian is more your style, there is a Vietnamese restaurant on E. 4th also, but I haven' tried it yet.

      And if you'd like to check out Michael Symon's flagship restaurant Lola, it is just a few steps from the Greenhouse on E. 4th. Though probably too pricey for a full meal for you, you can sit at the bar and enjoy some appetizers, or stop by on your way back to your hotel after dining elsewhere, for dessert.
