The epicenter of the Cleveland social scene these days can be found on West 25th Street in one of its newest additions. In less than a year, Townhall has quickly become the place to see and be seen around town, whether you're a twentysomething hipster or middle-aged professional. Thanks to the urban cafe's sophisticated drink menu and other-wordly atmosphere (it's hard not to feel like you're in Miami, not Cleveland), the massive melting pot of Cleveland drinkers has become a staple on the socialite's weekend to-do list. You simply must go there, say the readers, and they're packing the place every night. With a decadent array of cocktails (we like the Amethyst- Ciroc peach or Oyo stone fruit, plus beets, pineapple, lemongrass and honey), an expansive craft beer selection and a list of whiskeys that'll make you swoon, you may just find yourself kicking it on Townhall's lovely outdoor patio 'til tomorrow's brunch service, which, by the way, is top notch.
