31 of the Oldest Surviving Restaurants and Bars in Cleveland
It's amazing if a restaurant stays open 10 years these days. So the fact that these 25 bars and restaurants have been around since at least the 1970s, and most for much longer than that, dating all the way back to the early 1900s is pretty damn impressive. It's especially impressive to survive 2020, with COVID-19 causing sweeping closures to restaurants and bars across the country, including Sokolowski's, a Cleveland staple since 1904.
So, don't just admire these Cleveland area landmarks from afar. Visit them, eat at them and drink at them because they must be doing something right.
