Nestled in the heart of Cleveland's historic Little Italy district, Little Italy Wines transports oenophiles to a fermented-grape wonderland surrounded by shelves overflowing with bottles hailing from all corners of the globe. Taking place most Saturdays from 5 to 9 p.m., the tastings give sippers the opportunity to enrapture taste buds with a spread of pressed-grape goodness that is selected and described by the shop's cultivated wine experts. An included cheese-and-cracker plate provides toothsome accompaniment to sampled wines, delicately pairing piquant morsels with pleasant pours. After the tasting, customers choose between a bottle of red or white wine to take home for domestic delectation or as a desperate placating gesture toward California Raisins threatening dance-ridden riots if they don’t get a share of their boozy brethren.
Founded in 1988, Second Sole has laced its way to the forefront of footwear fitters, bedecking Cleveland’s jogging throngs in quality shoes conforming to each individual’s physical specs and running aspirations. An experienced staff that includes cross-country coaches and Division I runners will help you pick the perfect shoes from a vast selection of top brands, such as Adidas, ASICS, New Balance, and Nike. Treat tender toe-holders to a sleek pair of ASICS GT-2160 sneakers or encase your hooves in a pair of Brooks Adrenaline GTS 11s (both $100), winners of Runner’s World’s “Best Update”. Legs jealous of all the attention garnered by their nether-neighbors can dry their resentful tears on the chafe-eliminating DryLete fabric of Saucony Men's Omni LX Tight II pants ($65).
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.
Calling for the unity of the area's home brewers, The Cleveland Brew Shop maintains a complete stock of supplies to turn water and grain into foamy beer. Carboys, kettles, and buckets line the shelves, ready to be filled with fistfuls of ingredients. The shop keeps more than 40 base and specialty malts on hand and offers free milling for all purchased grains, precluding the need to reroute a river into one's personal watermill. Packaged kits provide all the ingredients necessary to craft beers in a variety of styles, and bags of hops declare their aromatic qualities. The shop also maintains supplies for making wine, and holds regular classes in the brewing process.
Drinking wine with people who are passionate about wine makes it that much better, and the folks behind Vino Veritas hope to do just that. Winemakers themselves, they work to both craft and curate varietals that are served at the wine bar by the glass or bottle. Inside the space, murals of the Sicilian countryside, painted by students from the Cleveland Institute of Art, conjure up a leisurely vibe, and visitors can sidle up to the bar to sip samples and see which merlots make good stand-ins for lipstick. There's also a kitchen, which serves up small plates and snacks that include cheese, fruit, and charcuterie boards and Sicilian-style flatbread pizzas.
