    Stop in during the Brite Winter Festival with a Brite Winter Mug for happy hour pricing. An Ohio City Voucher gets you a pint of beer or a 'Hot Nutz' shot.

    $1.50 beers, The Atomic Dog and bar bowling. If this doesn't grab you, the friendly Cleveland atmosphere sure will.

    ABC makes their own pork belly bacon. Ask for the BLT (it's not on the menu) - totally awesome and hard to finish. Best I've ever had.

    Competent dive-y almost collage-like bar. The kind of bar you drink at in the afternoon. Beer selection is good, wasn't blown out of the water, but I'm a snob. 80s jukebox or whatever was obnoxious.

    A dive bar turned hipster spot. Great food and a solid rotation of beers. If you're into spicy bar food, the Atomic Dog is a must!
