Patio Guide: Porco Lounge and Tiki Room

Nestled along an unassuming stretch of West 25th lies a little slice of tropical paradise, Porco Lounge and Tiki Room, Cleveland's only Polynesian-inspired craft cocktail bar. Here, thirsty locals sip rich concoctions made of high quality rum, fresh fruit juice, house-made syrups, and hard-to-find ingredients such as falernum and real grenadine. Enjoy a Mai Tai or a Painkiller at the bar, served up strong and spicy with brightly colored swizzle sticks and an elaborate fruit garnish, amid relics from Cleveland's famed Kon Tiki and soft island tunes. Or, unwind in the tiki lounge, a delightful room, complete with jungle-themed carpet and faux thatched awnings that will make folks feel like they’ve skipped town altogether. Come July, visit the new outdoor patio, which, we imagine, will quickly become a hotspot destination of its own. Porco Lounge and Tiki Room is located at 2527 W. 25th Street in Ohio City.
