Diner Reviews
  • "Cool vibe and excellent choices for drinkers. Cocktails are pricey but worth it when looking for something special. Appetizer options are few but quite good. Great location on East 4th."

  • "We reserved a table for a special occasion, my husband's 55th birthday, but were very disappointed. Our service was slow to non-existent; we had to seek out the manager to remind our waitress that two of our parties' drinks had never been delivered. I requested a dessert and cocktail flight ahead of time with birthday candles that was totally forgotten. It might be understandable is the place was packed, but it was not. We won't be back. "

  • " I booked a small gathering with close friends, we wanted something other than the typical bar scene, I must say we had a great time. The cast were awesome and the food was delicate and delicious, just enough for a lite taste at night. I would definitely recommend my others to give Society Lounge a try. "

  • "I love this place! We came down to a reserved table (we were a little late and they actually called despite a crowded bar). The atmosphere was amazing, the cocktails were very interesting and refreshing and we ended up staying for 5-6 hours. I would 100% recommend Society for a great experience and date night. The music, vibe and everything about this place was great. We did have to wait a little long on the drinks (specialty drinks are tough so I recommend staggering). Reservations are key, unless you do not mind standing...I love it, will be back and most certainly recommend this!"

  • "This place is terrific for drinks and mingling. The atmosphere is both lively and romantic. It's dimly lit, very dimly lit, with both intimate areas and social areas. The drinks are amazing. Sure, it takes a little to get them but once you see what goes into making them you'll understand! Always a return trip for me when I'm in Cleveland"

  • "When I called to book a party of 10 for a Saturday night, the man I spoke to at Society Lounge was very helpful and accommodating. I was so impressed that he took the time to help me plan the event. We had an excellent time and experienced excellent service. Also, they have large batch cocktail bowls!"

  • "Reserved a table for a friend's birthday, for after dinner drinks. Service-a little slow considering there weren't that people may people there when we arrived. Music-weird choice of music playing when we arrived, but loved that live music performance (Frank Sinatra). Drinks-wonderful, that's why we keep coming back!"

  • "Decided to visit Society Lounge to grab a drink and relax after eating down the street and was really impressed by the vast selection of unique libations. Staff was knowledgeable and friendly and made several recommendations (must try the 4th Street Sour!!). Really enjoyed the live music too (cant remember the singers name) as it was relaxing and not too loud. Looking forward to going back again next time we are downtown."

  • "The service was great although busy. (Meredith) very helpful when explaining why what I saw & fell in love with online was NOTHING like the actual menu. She was as quick as could be expected for an extremely busy Saturday night. Drinks, AMAZING! I have to go back is because it was so busy, and so loud, I didn't get the true "feel" for the place. TOO many people, (possible fire hazard??) noise level so high I could not hear the piano player. I want to return on a week night to see the true essence of it, because I believe that I will love it. My advice to a 1st time visitor is, DO NOT go on a Friday or Saturday night. Make that your 2nd or 3rd visit. PS, we did not eat but had to put something for food or the review would not take"

  • "It was our first visit to the Society Lounge. We were very impressed with the interior design and décor. It is a very comfortable setting filled with an excellent service staff. Kudos to you all. The drink menu is amazing and fun! The food menu is small but delicious. We very much enjoyed Holly Michelle at the piano bar. I would certainly recommend the Society Lounge to anyone who is looking to relax inside an amazing establishment. . . . get to know this place! It's great."

  • "I planned a Valentine's day date this year at Society Lounge and could not have been more pleased. They were very busy because of the holiday, but the service we had was unbeatable. Kelsey, our server, took care of us like we were her only table. Great place, great drinks, and a great date night."

  • "Went here with friends for a birthday celebration. We had a great time! Our server was super helpful in guiding us through the unique drink menu. The drinks were interesting and refreshing. My favorite was the Moscow Mule. We also ordered tapas, which were nothing special but still good. The band was fun, but be prepared for a noisy night. It got really crowded later on but it was fun. Would definitely go back for another Moscow Mule!"

  • "1st timer at Society this past weekend & will definitely be back soon. We ordered multiple different drinks and suprisingly enough, the herb drinks were voted #1 by our group. We are scotch & bourbon drinkers. See you soon at the Society!"

  • "This was our first time at Society Lounge. We had an excellent time and have nothing but great things to say. Jordan is the bubbliest and sweetest waitress I've met in a long time, she is phenomenal! Her recommendations were spot on and she was very attentive, even when the place filled to the brim! The food is more of light snacks but that is made clear up front. We will most definitely return soon!"

  • "This was my girlfriend and my first visit to Society. We visited after a night a Playhouse Square on a Friday. Upon entering, we were surprised at how empty the place was, but the atmosphere was great. Our servers were amazing. They were attentive and made many drink suggestions for us since it was our first time. The drinks came out quickly and were delicious. I had one of my server's suggestions, and it was great. We will definitely return to Society!"

  • "At first glance Society looks like it will be a great bar. But when you get there it feels more like a college bar than a high end stop for quality drinks. When your going somewhere to enjoy premium drinks you don't want a rave like atmosphere. It was so loud in there that we couldn't hear anyone at our table unless they were the person directly next to you. The sound quality from the speakers was horrible, scratchy and sounded like they were blown. Our server did a good job stopping by but wasn't really personable. If your looking for incredible drinks, stick with spots like the Velvet Tango Room, so far no one can touch their magic."

  • "Society Lounge has a very romantic ambience. I celebrated my 24th birthday here, it was my first time here. All of my family and friends loved the environment and the live singer. The only complaint I heard all night from my party was the food menu was terrible! Nobody could get over the fact that they couldn't have any good filling meal while they drank and enjoyed the live musician. The food menu definintly needs to change! Appetizers would be great; French fries, stuffed mushrooms, crab cakes, etc... Other than the lack of food options Society Lounge beautiful place hang out with friends!!! Eat before you come!"

  • "Loved Society Lounge. Made a reservation for 4 to get a few drinks after dinner before going to a concert. The place was very busy when we first arrived a little after 7pm on a Thursday, but our waitress was wonderful. The drinks were delicious and very strong. Would definitely go back!!"
    Dined on 12/12/2013
  • "I am missing the right words to describe the cocktail list - I think you have to try it! I did not know what to choose and relied on recommendations for the evening: Gin little bit sour, Whiskey sweet - we were well served and enjoyed the live music and the atmosphere!"

  • "As always, this place is amazing. Drinks are perfect, staff is pleasant, and the ambiance is timeless."
    Dined on 12/6/2013
  • "The atmosphere, drinks and entertainment were well worth the high price of the drinks. However, the service was absolutely horrible. Go when you are not in a hurry and don't expect exceptional service. Also, be sure they bring you the correct beverage and don't let them try to convenience you that it is when it clearly isn't."
    Dined on 12/6/2013
  • "I set up a evening with society lounge for my girlfriends birthday. They had us in a reserved section infront of the live music. It was very well executed, romantic, and just a excellent night. I would and have recommended this place to all my friends that are in a relationship even those not. It's just such a cool place to go and enjoy the experience I can't keep it a secret!!!"

  • "Very busy, and why not! Although we only stayed for one drink (Manhattan and one Blood & Sand), would definitely return if in Cleveland again. After trying to find a decent Manhattan ("Rye?? We have Bourbon..."), I finally found a great one. Friend had the Blood & Sand, which I tasted, and he thoroughly enjoyed it. Perfect for us, as we weren't looking for a heavy meal. Just something to nibble on. Got the Charcuterie & Cheese plate. The cheese was excellent, while the meats seemed like standard deli cuts. A good Pâté with some crusty bread would have been welcome (but didn't seem like the place for "liver breath"). The live music and over-the-top service were the highlight of our trip.. Go for the drinks. This is the real stuff."

  • "We were in Cleveland for a few days for the Thanksgiving holiday, (up from Columbus) and I wanted to find a nice after-dinner spot for my wife's 31st birthday. She really enjoyed the music, the drinks and being with her friends. When you are a parent, finding a place to get dressed up and live it up is a necessity every now and again! This place did not disappoint. Only had handcrafted cocktails (they are pricey, but worth it!) PS-They do not have food."

  • "Despite my reservation thru Open Table, the lady seem hesitate to give me a table because I came alone first before my friends are coming. I saw my name at her tablet and she asked "I'm curious, what time did you make the reservation (at Open Table)? She offered me a table by the entrance which is far from the life music and crowd. I asked for another table that is located further inside & she gave it to me for as long as my friends are coming. My friend showed up and we got a couple of drinks. We felt a little hungry and looked at the menu. To our surprise, there is nothing there we could order other than Tapas/Desserts. We decided to cut our visit short and leave. Had there were real food, we would have stayed longer, eat, and drink more."

  • "My Boyfriend & I had dinner at Lola (which was WONDERFUL!) and were looking for a place to continue the night. Our Server suggested Society right across the street. We had seen it walking into Lola but wasn't sure what it was. It's in the basement, but when we opened the door we were surprised by what a hidden gem we found! A romantic dimly-lit cocktail lounge, with a beautiful mural covering one wall. Felt very "Boardwalk Empire"! Service was very attentive yet not overwhelming and the ambiance was great. The drinks though...WOW! My boyfriend said it may have been the best Old Fashioned he'd ever had, and I had a Moscow Mule which was dangerously good! They had a small food menu too but we were stuffed. We'll check that out next time!"

  • "Really cool little spot tucked away on East 4th. I hear it gets a little crowded on the weekends but it was perfect for a Thursday night date. Very chill and great drinks-super sweet bartenders"
    Dined on 11/14/2013
  • "The drinks here are great and strong! Our server made recommendations and offered ideas of what the bartenders could make that weren't on the menu. I didn't try any of the food but it looks like a lot of small plates and appetizers. The atmosphere is more like a lounge and we went on a Saturday night and they had live music. The only negative was that the later it got, the more crowded it became, and it was difficult to get a drink and hunt down your waitress to pay the bill."
