CLEVELAND, OH — There are diverse restaurants where one can enjoy a chilled beverage, lovely cuisine and great company at Downtown Cleveland's magnificent restaurant patios. They include sky-high rooftop views, panoramic riverfront panoramas, laid-back tropical flair or stylish industrial courtyards.
Regardless of your food and drinks of choice, here are six of the downtown patios to enjoy the city's summertime beauty while sipping on a martini.
- Sixth City Sailors Club
This casual, laid-back bar and restaurant, located in the middle of Downtown's vibrant Gateway District, transports you to an island getaway. This hot spot, which opened in 2020, has become a Downtown staple that features fire pits, a bocce court, string lights, live music and a net full of colorful beach balls above your head at the bar.
- Alley Cat Oyster Bar
Alley Cat Oyster Bar's panoramic riverside offers top-notch eating and cocktails with unrivaled views if you prefer a more expensive and refined dining experience. This laid-back, stylish yet comfy restaurant has become a landmark of Flats East Bank, offering the ideal spot to watch enormous freighters navigate the twisting waterways as the sun sets below the horizon. Relax on the banks of the Cuyahoga River with a glass of wine, a Lobster Roll and, of course, oysters.
- Cleveland Chop
A delicious steakhouse located in the Warehouse District, this hidden gem is a great place for someone searching for an alfresco cocktail or dinner in the heart of a trendy urban courtyard.
- Azure Rooftop Lounge
Azure Rooftop Lounge, perched high in the sky at The 9, a historic Downtown building featuring luxury apartments and a hotel, serves delectable cocktails with unrivaled city views. The views here are stunning, whether you're enthralled by vistas of the Terminal Tower's sunset glow or the city's glittering lights as darkness falls.
- Nuevo Modern Mexican & Tequila Bar
Nuevo Modern Mexican & Tequila Bar (near the North Coast Harbor's Voinovich Park) has an expansive patio with views of the park, harbor, lake and Downtown skyline, making it one of Cleveland's few lakefront restaurants.
