Best Bar Your Dad Used to Drink At 

Harbor Inn

Fact: Any bar about which your father says, "Yeah, I used to drink there," is a fine American drinking establishment. It means the joint has character and staying power. And your old man has good taste, so he wouldn't steer you wrong. The Harbor has been slinging cheap beer and liquor in the Flats for more than a century, and trust me, your dad's tipped a few back at this Cleveland landmark. And while the customer demographics have changed over the years, little else has — drinks are still nice and cheap, and there are few better spots to spend an afternoon or early evening with friends — be they your own or the Harbor regulars. And let's not forget Wally, the purveyor of this fine establishment, because chances are pretty good he won't forget you. — Grzegorek
