Entertainment & Nightlife in Cleveland


Nightlife in Cleveland is pretty lively. The historic Warehouse District is home to many of the upscale hangouts, such as The Blind Pig, Spy Bar and The Velvet Dog. Live-music aficionados will enjoy Barking Spider Tavern or Swingos on the Lake. For cultural performances, try Playhouse Square Center near downtown, or check to see if the world-renowned Cleveland Orchestra is in town.

From such major venues as the Blossom Music Center, down to the tiniest local spots like the Odeon, the city boasts plenty of places for performers and fans to share an evening. The Cleveland Orchestra is one of the world's finest performing groups. Catching them playing a home gig is the tough part, as the Orchestra's players are routinely touring the world. Blossom is the summer home of the Orchestra, with performances held on at least a weekly basis.

The Great Lakes Science Center offers an Omnimax Theatre, featuring a domed 60-foot screen and virtual reality productions. The Omnimax runs movies daily, typically offering multiple showings.

The Cleveland Metroparks Zoo, with its Rainforest attraction, draws thousands of visitors annually. Six Flags World of Adventure Amusement Park in Aurora, along with Cedar Point Amusment Park in Sandusky, are two of the nation's best venues for thrill-seekers.

Places to Unwind

Performing Arts

Cleveland's performing-arts scene is exceptional, featuring the renowned Cleveland Orchestra and Cleveland Opera. Both performance seasons run autumn through spring. Productions by DanceCleveland and the Verb Ballet tap the talent of top dance troupes and choreographers.

If you prefer theatre, there are a half-dozen companies to choose from, including the Cleveland Play House, one of the longest-running regional theatres in the nation, the unique outdoor venue of Cain Park, the venerable Beck Center for the Arts, and historic Karamu House.

Playhouse Square Center, near downtown, is the nucleus of Cleveland's performing-arts community. Four magnificent theatres from the 1920s have been restored as part of the complex. Lovely Severance Hall, the city's main concert venue, has superb acoustics.

Those seeking a laugh or two have a handful of choices as well. Hilarities 4th Street Theatre, located on the west side of downtown, features top local comedians. The Flats is home to the Improv, which attracts national acts as well as local funny people.
