Though Parnell's expanded, with much success, to Playhouse Square in 2014, the Cleveland Heights location is still Cleveland's classic Irish pub. An itty-bitty interior means it's you and the gorgeous array of whiskeys in extremely close proximity. The company's not half-bad either: It's the stomping grounds of east-side soccer fanatics, Cedar Lee pilgrims (it's right next door to the theater) and the liquored literati of Northeast Ohio. Expect your favorite Irish beers on tap and top-notch service from a genuine Irish immigrant. Cleveland Heights can be proud.
