Upstairs from the bustling hair studio and spa, The Wine Bar at Solaire offers a quiet respite amid lush curtains and soft lighting.

Typically, when wine lovers try to find a new wine bar, they look for a cozy hole-in-the wall filled with gauzy curtains and illuminated by candles. When they're looking for the Battery Park Wine Bar, though, they just have to glance up at the towering smokestack studded with enormous red letters. Owner Mike Graley wanted to create a wine bar that would appeal to a beer drinker, according to an article in Cleveland Magazine, that also complemented the venue's "hip vibe and smart wine list of familiar favorites." Bartenders and servers regale guests with descriptions of their more than 100 wines available by the bottle and rotating selection of more than 25 wines by the glass. The kitchen crafts small plates designed to complement the fermented flavors with braised octopus and spinach salads, flatbreads spread with pumpkin-seed pesto, and thoughtfully composed charcuterie boards.

The rehabilitated space creates a modern industrial aesthetic by merging the old and the new. Exposed brick, high ceilings, and a massive garage door allude to the building's past, and geometric light fixtures hang between the gleaming ductwork above high-top tables. Guests can enjoy a drink at the polished wooden bar, stop in to pick up an impressive bottle before a house party, or reenact lessons from Donald Duck in Mathmagic Land at the pool table.

Thanks to twice-monthly trainings, the bartenders at D'Vine Wine Bar can give background on the taste and terroir of the more than 60 wines they pour, according to Cleveland Magazine. Visitors sip those varietals—or, alternatively, beer or craft cocktails—while seated beneath antique chandeliers, pairing their selections with shareable plates of artisanal cheese and charcuterie. Located in downtown Cleveland's historic Warehouse District, the spot offers a cozy ambiance that's complimented by a crackling fireplace.

The aroma of Southern-style barbecue fills Tavern of Solon, rising above the top of its restored 1950s high-school scoreboard and up to the ceiling. Under the watchful eye of owner Rich Earle, the casual pub crafts dishes such as Angus burgers topped with Carolina-style barbecue pork and smoked or fried wings entirely in-house. The pillars of the menu, though, are the slow-smoked barbecue platters?pork, brisket, chicken, and baby back ribs?paired with traditional sides, including coleslaw and cornbread muffins. Events, such as live music on Saturday nights and screenings of Sunday- and Monday-night NFL games, contribute to the lively atmosphere. Decades-old photos of the city of Solon line the walls, conjuring a blend of local pride and nostalgia.
