Rather than limit themselves to serving creative, Cleveland-inspired cuisine or to hosting late-night bowlers sipping from frothy pint glasses, the founders of 4th Street Bar & Grill – The Corner Alley decided to do both. Inside spacious, sleek environs, servers at the bowling alley’s 4th Street Bar & Grill dole out pierogis—dumplings stuffed with potato and smoked cheddar cheese—and oven-baked pizzas, such as the Alley Pie, topped with cheese and fresh basil. Local draft brews from Buckeye Brewing, Brew Kettle, and Hoppin’ Frog or one of more than 20 locally-inspired cocktails and martinis accompany meals and pin-pulverizing sessions at one of 16 lanes. Satellite-selected sounds pump through speakers, and patrons can control tunes from a special app on their phone or speak directly to Meatloaf through the jukebox.

Whether they’re there to bowl, eat, drink, or finally understand gravity, up to 600 people can gather inside the ample quarters. Groups of 4–45 revelers can populate the Mezzanine, a private party room hoisted atop an elevated platform and replete with several flat-screen TVs. Millionaire’s Row plays host to 100 guests, who can bowl on four private lanes, sip martinis at the Back Alley bar, or lay quietly atop the billiards table. And inside the 2,000-square-foot Spare Room, up to 90 friends can dine on a customizable menu as well as play billiards, air hockey, foosball, darts, and skeeball.

Over the years, Reddstone?s outdoor patio has earned it plenty of love. In 2011, CBS Cleveland named Reddstone among the best outdoor bars in the city, and Cleveland Scene magazine deemed it the top spot for patio drinking. Though the patio garners a lot of attention, especially during its weekly pig roasts over the summer, Reddstone slyly offers the Detroit Shoreway and Battery Park community a dining experience to match its patio?s growing legend. The chef keeps the kitchen open until midnight every night, whipping up signature burgers and small plates to accompany 20 craft beers on tap. Rather than playing the "Star Spangled Banner" on a squeaky chair, Reddstone?s management team keeps visitors thoroughly entertained by booking weekly live performances from acts that range from standup comedians to jazz musicians.

Every year, Cinema at the Square takes over the Palace Theatre's 20'x47' screen to treat moviegoers to an eclectic lineup of classic flicks. With a restored 1927 Kimball organ played before the films, the month-long festival transports viewers back in time, allowing them to forget their everyday cares and give fellow show-goers new everyday cares by dumping a pack of Milk Duds into their purse. The Palace Theatre was originally built in the roaring '20s, and proffers the perfect locale for breathless escapism, with rich red carpet and a lobby dominated by a sweeping marble staircase.

Hailed by the New York Times as “one of the country’s best repertory movie theaters,” The Cleveland Institute of Art Cinematheque feeds eyes with a vast array of foreign and independent first-run films, silver-screen classics, and touring retrospectives.

Established as an Irish restaurant and bar in 1910, the Flat Iron has operated in a former four-story hotel dating from the late 1800s while continually dishing up authentic entrees from the motherland of limericks. Flip open Flat Iron's menu to find flavors imported from the tops of MacGillycuddy's Reeks, such as the Flat Iron potato skins ($6.25), six deep-fried ovals mingling with mixed cheese, crumbled bacon, and scallions. Pub specials include the tried-and-true fish and chips ($10.95) and the traditional shepherd's pie ($9.95), showcasing natural deposits of ground lamb under gravy and cheese bedrock. Flat Iron's burger and sandwich selections include regional inspirations from Dublin, Ireland, to Dublin, Ohio; the Irish Bend burger ($7.50) is festooned with sautéed mushrooms and swiss, while the Charlotte chicken ($7.95) arrives smothered with thousand-island dressing and crunchy bacon. Barley-and-yeast connoisseurs can choose an imported beer ($3.50–$7.50) to continue their Gaelic jaunt, or reward American-ale summoners by drinking a domestic beer on tap ($3.50–$5).
