Cleveland ROCKS! But everyone knows that. What everyone might not know is they have some pretty rocking happy hour deals. If you want to party in Cleveland, here are a few places to make you happy.


The Treehouse
820 College Avenue - Cleveland, OH 44113 – 216.696.2505

Complete with a faux tree whose branches run throughout the building, the Treehouse is a quaint bar in the heart of Tremont. Ambient lighting cast from the copper ceiling above only add to the laid-back atmosphere of this rather Irish pub. Simple patio furniture out back with awnings, lovely greenery and spots of flowers when it's warm enough for such luxuries. When the cold sets in, comfort yourself with a Happy Hour drink, Tuesday: $1.50 PBR 16oz Pounders, Wednesday: All Wine Glass Pour $5, Thursday: Stoli-Doli's, Signature Martini vodka infused with pineapple are $5 All Night, Saturday: $6.00 Labatt Blue Light Pitchers and Shot Specials from10AM-6PM Sunday: Guinness $4.50 and $5 wine all night and live music starting at 9PM.


Momocho
1835 Fulton Road - Cleveland, OH 44113 – 216.694.2122

If you love Mexican folk art, soft lighting in tones of yellow, red and blue and access to a patio with lush walls of greenery to tuck you away from all that is wrong with the world. You will love Momocho and while the happy hour may seem small, they take 3 things that go together incredibly well and combine them at half price. Happy Hour: Tue-Fri 5PM-6:30PM in the bar and on the first floor, price margaritas, tecate, and taquitos ‎- To say they have good Mexican food is an unjust understatement and by the way, do yourself a favor - get extra guacamole.


Flat Iron Cafe
1114 Center St - Cleveland, OH 44113 – 216.696.6968

A classic Irish Pub with good food, no frills and they just celebrated their 100th birthday. I think what I love best about the Flat Iron is their Free two way valet service for lunch, dinner or a game. Who does that? They also have All Day Every Day $2 PBR, $2 Tuesdays from 4PM-close. All of the following for $2 - Coronas and Long Island iced teas Provolone Wedges, Santa Fe Nachos, Hot Pepper Poppers, Cheese Fries, Flat Iron Potato Skins, Power Pierogies; Happy Hour from 4PM-7PM, $1 off.

Happy Dog Inc
5801 Detroit Avenue - Cleveland, OH 44102 – 216.651.9474

Have you been living in the confines of Hot Dog redundancy? Do you shudder at the thought of ketchup and mustard on your dog? Do you like Fruit loops? Well have I got the place for you, Happy Dog is a bar that serves nothing but Hot Dogs, Fries and Tater Tots. Oh, and about 50 toppings from savory brie, fried egg and marinated Portobello to the wilder pineapple-ginger chutney and sriracha chili. With Vegetarian and Vegan options too, no one will be left behind. $2 Domestics on Happy Hour daily from 4PM-7PM Live music every Thu-Sat with a pinball league on Wednesdays and Trivia on Mondays.


Lolita
900 Literary Road - Cleveland, OH 44113 – 216.771.5652

Home to celebrity Chef, Michael Symon, Lolita's is cute bistro in historic Treemont where many foodies find just the delights their finicky taste buds crave. An intimate setting with its tight set tables and soft candle lighting that glows off the brick walls, it's a great place for a romantic evening out. If you can keep the Happy Hour times straight, you will love the delicious deals on food and drinks. Tues-Thurs 5PM-6:30PM and 9:30PM-close, Sat 5PM-6:30PM and 10:30PM- close, Sun 4PM-6:30PM; $2 Sierra Nevada, $4 Red and White Wine, $5 Beta & Margarita Martini - $5 Food Menu includes: Fried Brussels Sprouts, Mussels, Mac and Goat Cheese, Burger with Fried Egg, Chick Pea Dip.


Shinto Japanese Steakhouse & Sushi Bar
17070 Pearl Rd - Strongsville, OH 44136 – 440.878.3868

Grab your friends and head out to Shinto for dinner cooked over the hibachi grill in all its flames and showmanship. If you have never experienced the sushi slinging chefs at a Japanese steakhouse, it is something you must try. Whether in a group or traveling solo, be ready to make new friends when you are seated at the large granite table while a Teppanyaki chef prepares you're meal. If you ate a late lunch, enjoy some drinks and Sushi in the patio lounge, there is always something on special. Daily from 4:30PM-6:30PM $1.50 Domestic and $1.50-$5 for Imports, $2 Off All Other Drinks, Mon $5 Martini, Tuesday Half Priced ALL Sushi, Nigiri and Sashimi, Wednesday Half Price Apps, Thursday Half Price Bottle Wine.


Luxe Kitchen and Lounge
6605 Detroit Ave - Cleveland, OH 44102 – 216.920.0600

This restaurant in the Gordon Square arts district is well thought out in its airy and clean space with many simple elements that are pulled together to really create a place which is incredibly cool with just enough funk to make it interesting. Luxe Kitchen is a great place to have dinner with or enjoy a few cocktails. The patio out back reminds me of spaces you would see in LA with manicured trees resembling something out of a Dr. Seuss book, floor lighting and horizontal fencing. The best part? They bring out heat lamps when the temperatures drop so you can enjoy your Happy Hour al fresco. Mon-Fri from 5-7PM Martinis are By One Get one Free $11–Drafts By One Get one Free $6–PBR $3.25 White and Red $7.50 By One Get one Free and all their specialty Pizza's are Half off (Average $7).
