Harbor Inn

The quintessential Cleveland bar offers friendly staff, cheap drinks, an invitingly dumpy environment, and an interesting collection of drunks and weirdos with whom to converse. No place fills that bill better than the Harbor Inn. By day, it's home to working stiffs from its industrial surroundings. By night, it attracts a fine array of hipsters, middle-aged lunatics, and everyone in between. One minute you're talking to a stand-up comedian, the next a shipmaster. The key is the vibe: The Harbor employs the nicest, swiftest bartenders in Cleveland. Whether you're pierced or covered in roofing tar, everyone's welcome to a shot, a $2 Pabst tallboy, and friendly conversation. When Saint Peter built his bar in heaven, he modeled it after the Harbor Inn.
