after the Dublin Red-Light District in James Joyce's Ulysses,
Nighttown posseses the ambiance of Irish pubs and turn of
the century New York bars. Leaded, etched, and stained glass,
combined with a clutter of memorabilia from earlier eras
decorate the four distinctly different dining rooms and three
active bars. Be sure to see Stephen's Green, our outdoor
dining area (fully-heated for year-round use) with a wall-size
opening day, February 5, 1965, the menu has been a model of consistency.
Top quality Certified Angus Beef, milk -fed veal, and the freshest
of fish and chicken are prepared with creative simplicity. Try our
house speciality, The Dublin Lawyer. And Nighttown has the best
jazz available - in fact, we're the only club in Ohio on Down Beat's
list of The Best Jazz Clubs in the World. Local players, as well
as the likes of Ahmad Jamal, Benny Green, John and Bucky Pizzarelli,
the Count Basie Orchestra, Eliane Elias, Ann Hampton Callaway, Bob
Dorough, Karrin Allyson, Kurt Elling, Bob James and literally hundreds
of other "name" artists have all performed to enthusiastic
audiences in one of the most intimate venues imaginable.
Nighttown is also home of The Press Club of Cleveland and its Cleveland Journalism Hall of Fame, representing over 120 years of Cleveland journalism history.
