 The Velvet Tango Room
2095 Columbus Rd., Cleveland
Stepping into this Ohio City bar is like being transported in time back to the 1920’s, where you needed a password to enter the bar. Good thing alcohol is legal now and the old timey, warm and charming decor and craft cocktails makes this one of the most unique bars in town.

 The Marble Room
623 Euclid Ave., Cleveland
Newly opened in the old National City Bank building, it’d be hard to find a more beautiful bar in town then the bar in the swanky Marble Room. The name says it all - the beautiful marble columns and intricately designed molding is absolutely stunning.

 The Foundation Room at the House of Blues
308 Euclid Ave., Cleveland
Whether it’s before or after a show or just on any night you want to get a drink in a quiet place, you should check out the Foundation Room at the House of Blues - but make sure you know someone who’s a member in order to get in. This funkily-designed bar makes you feel like you’re somewhere in the far East, with Persian rugs and Indian designs giving the place a very relaxing feel.

 Bodega
1854 Coventry Rd., Cleveland Heights
The sleek, modern feel of this bar makes you think you’re in a Vegas nightclub, not a Cleveland Heights lounge. Also, the drinks are delicious and the food is worth your while, too.

 Bourbon Street Barrel Room
2393 Professor Ave., Cleveland
With the perfect mix of eccentric and classy decor, this Tremont spot has the right ambience for the type of place it is - a slice of New Orleans in Cleveland. And the bourbon list is extensive, naturally.

 Giovanni’s Ristorante
2550 Chagrin Blvd., Beachwood
Considered by many to be the fanciest restaurant in town, the bar was redone a few years ago, and has a more modern, sleek feel, compared to the fancier atmosphere of the dining room. Not only is the bar beautifully-designed, but if you sit in the bar during the week, there’s a fantastic menu that won’t cost you a car payment.

 Drink Bar and Grill
4250 Pearl Rd., Cleveland
This under the radar Old Brooklyn watering hole combines rich hardwood floors, mahogany bar, and perfect bar lighting to create an ambience where you’d want to have a drink. Whiskey, wine or beer, it doesn’t matter, this is just a cool spot to have a drink or three.

 Adega
2017 East Ninth St., Cleveland
The modern, glass heavy decor makes this bar, and the whole restaurant, one of the coolest designed places in town at this modern Mediterranean joint. Being located at the Metropolitan hotel/the Nine, downtown’s swankiest residence, makes it not just beautiful decor, but the scene is worth checking out as well.

 Speakeasy at Quintana’s Barber and Dream Spa
2190 South Taylor Rd., Cleveland Heights
A barbershop in Cleveland Heights doesn’t sound like a place that would have one of the most beautiful bars in Cleveland. But when you go above the barbershop, and through a secret bookcase, you’ll find a dimly-lit bar with comfy leather couches and some of the best drinks in town.

This under-the-radar industrial chic bar in downtown has one of the coolest designed bars in the city. The drinks are pretty tasty as well.
