The Oldest Bar In Cleveland, Harbor Inn Has A Fascinating History

When one explores and admires the streets of Cleveland, they will find a cornucopia of old and historic buildings. Many have housed multiple businesses and attractions, but a few historic buildings have continuously operated as the same entity since opening. Bars, in particular, seem to come and go with population and demographic changes, but this one bar in the Flats is the exception to that reality.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate

This bar is an icon, and Clevelanders can’t get enough of its atmosphere. Have you visited the Harbor Inn before? What year did you first discover it? Share your stories in the comments, because we’d love to learn about what these walls would tell of if they could talk!
