All Saints Public House

All Saints Public House

All Saints Public House is a neighborhood pub located a few blocks off Detroit Ave. on the corner of W. 76th and Battery Park Blvd. Known for its cozy, relaxed environment, All Saints also features a spacious patio and an upstairs entertainment venue. Their excellent menu includes seasonal specials like their Lenten Fish Fry, which you can wash down with beer, wine, or one of the specialty craft drinks/mixers concocted by their master mixologist. Stop by for Tuesday Trivia, stand-up comedy (Wednesdays), live music, or their Happy Hour Specials.



Astoria takes its name from the Astoria neighborhood in Queens, New York, which is known for its large Greek population. Astoria, Queens was named after millionaire John Jacob Astor as part of a business deal. In Greek mythology, Asteria was the Titan goddess of falling stars. The word “asteri” refers to stars.

Astoria occupies 5,000 square feet of of a 24,000 square foot building at 5417 Detroit Avenue, near Gordon Square. Astoria incorporates a cafe, bar, and market/deli and its mission is to provide guests and customers with easy access to high-quality imported and domestic food, with an emphasis on the Mediterranean region.

Astoria’s guests enjoy a taste of home, while experiencing new and exciting foods and flavors, assisted by knowledgeable, enthusiastic staff who have a passion for fine imported goods, exemplary hospitality, and contributing to the vitality of Gordon Square, Cleveland, Northeast Ohio, and beyond.


Open Now in Gordon Square, in Cleveland’s Detroit Shoreway neighborhood. Banter is a unique retail craft beer & wine store and tasting room featuring the regions finest curated selection of beer and wine from around the world (and around the corner). Banter also specializes in gourmet house-made sausages and Quebec-style poutine.


Brewnuts combines the hospitality of the corner donut shop with the comfort of your favorite watering hole. We encourage you to belly up to the bar and stay awhile.

Brewnuts is the lovechild of two Clevelanders—Shelley & John Pippin—who gave up their jobs working for “The Man” to pursue their three favorite things: donuts, beer and Cleveland.

Long story short, one night Shelley bolted up in bed and asked John what he thought about the idea of making craft beer based donuts. After a long pause he said “I like that.” The next day we went out and bought a countertop fryer and got busy hatching our plan to make Cleveland’s most unique and delicious donuts.

Forest City Brewery

“This 40-seat brewery is old-school to the core” – props to Cleveland Magazine. Pull up a seat at the bar and check out the vintage—everything—including classic Cleveland brewery memorabilia. The old-school bar is great and so is the full menu of guest beers, wine, and spirits to choose from. Their on-site kitchen provides a delectable selection of handhelds, shareable, and solo food options to pair with your pint of frothy brew or hand-crafted cocktail.

Great Lakes Brewery

Two Irish-American brothers with limited brewing experience. A city that shuttered its last production brewery in the early 80s. A neighborhood in need of a boost. When in 1986 Patrick and Daniel Conway opened their fledgling operation in Cleveland’s Ohio City neighborhood, the odds were stacked against them. Fortunately, they surrounded themselves with a staff of passionate, knowledgeable people, and from the start committed themselves to bringing an independent, sophisticated, diverse selection of craft beer to their home state. Today Pat and Dan Conway celebrate over three decades of crafting exceptional beer for their adventurous and discerning customers.
