Best Wine Bar 

Market Avenue Wine Bar

On a cobblestone street behind the Great Lakes Brewing Company, the Market Avenue Wine Bar is an oak-soaked, dimly lit getaway with an intimate Greenwich Village ambiance. Touted as Cleveland's first-ever wine bar (it opened in 1985), it's stocked with more than 700 bottles of wine, including 30 open bottles of reds to buy by the glass. It's also applauded for its menu of hors d'oeuvres, with the baked almond brie the hands-down favorite. It's a creamy, almond-topped cheese baked in a puff-pastry shell and served with baguettes and an array of fruit slices. With a spicy glass of Shiraz, it's perfect on a crisp winter night.
