Support Local Journalism

Join the Scene Press Club community for as little as $5 per month.

Since its founding in 1970, the Cleveland Scene has been dedicated to providing fearless, high-quality local journalism, especially in times of crisis. As a small, independent news organization, we are facing an unprecedented challenge. We have launched the Scene Press Club to create a community around our readers and strongest supporters at a time that local media across the country has been struggling, and to help underwrite our work in light of the financial crisis catalyzed by the coronavirus pandemic.

At a time when our community needs fiercely independent reporting more than ever, we now depend on the support of our readers more than ever to help sustain our mission. Joining the Scene Press Club is one way you can help, and in return we will be providing a growing array of benefits and privileges.

We invite you to join our growing community of members to help sustain our mission of providing our readers free and full access online and in print. With your support, the Cleveland Scene can continue providing the best local reporting and enterprise coverage we can. And we look forward to the time when we all come out of this together.

 Lola
2058 East Fourth St., Cleveland

Lola was the restaurant that started East Fourth as a dining destination. Michael Symon’s flagship restaurant shut down in November of 2020 after 24 years in business. Symon famously relocated Lola from Tremont to E. Fourth Street in 2006, doing for that neighborhood what he and his wife Liz did for Tremont, which is to say transform it into the epicenter of Cleveland dining and entertainment.
