Nighttown Chosen as One of The 34 Best Restaurants
in Suburban Cuyahoga County by The Plain Dealer


Nighttown is really pleased to be selected by The Plain Dealer as one of the best restaurants in Cuyahoga County. Marc Bona writes "Go back in time in this wonderfully clubby atmosphere, with dozens of posters and prints and art adorning the walls. The flagship Famous Dublin Lawyer – a lobster-bisque-like entrée – is not to be missed. Established in 1965, it's also a jazz club."
