Named after the Dublin Red-Light District in James Joyce's Ulysses, Nighttown possesses 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 waterfall.

Since 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 specialty, 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.

Normally a solid choice with an authentic feel, but avoid dinner if there is a concert and you aren't attending that event. We have gone several times and enjoyed it, but this last visit we were rushed through the kitchen out onto a converted patio (in February) and had a dreadful dining experience. Nothing wrong with the food and weeknights may be a better idea. I will hesitate to book again on a weekend.

Get there early for lunch, so it was still quiet. The interior is cozy and quirky, which I loved (we were on the "dark side" 👍), and our server was great. The best French fries came with my turkey Ruben. I'd go back just for more of those!
Lovely meal overall.

This is one of my and my husband's favorite restaurants in the Cleveland area! It consistently delivers excellent, affordable food and service and has a relaxing pub-like atmosphere with walls decorated with artwork featuring famous writers, artists and their haunts. For the cost conscious, it offers one of the best early-bird-special menus around with choices in fish, chicken, beef and vegetarian--something for everyone! Conveniently located just above University Circle, NightTown is a short ride to any number of cultural events. The restaurant itself offers an impressive array of jazz and musical performances which we have also enjoyed on numerous occasions. We live on the west side but this is our favorite destination restaurant whenever we go east.

We enjoyed our experience very much, we were promptly seated, our server was very attentive to us and saw to our every need. The food was served in a timely fashion and we were able to enjoy our cocktails prior. The ambiance was nice and even though there was a jazz show playing on the other side, the noise level was not so loud that we could not have a conversation. So overall, we had a good time and will definitely be returning, this time for dinner and a show. :)

I gave the ambience a lower rating, because we were out in the patio area, which is well heated for winter, but not “cozy“. Overall though, this is a great place in Cleveland, and will definitely go again

We were there very early and jazz band was practicing for a very short time, which was fun. The Bloody Mary was the best I’ve had in a long time. Fried ravioli...not the at all tasty. We Took the suggestion of waitress and loved the Louisiana salad and The Dublin Lawyer. Dessert of cheesecake was fine, nothing special but they did have good old fashion coffee. Service was excellent. Ambience was fine....if you enjoy an older establishment, lots of wood and paneling which is a warm feeling in the winter.

Met a friend for dinner. Nighttown is our neighborhood hang-out.

Decent menu and always a good value. I got the rib special which was tasty. Meat was tender and falling off the bone. My wife and guest got the Caesar Salad with salmon, which is large and well-prepared.

The best reason to come to Nighttown is the music: a wide variety of acts in an intimate setting, reasonably priced. A well-known Cleveland hang-out.

Consistently good food with friendly, efficient service. If you want to have a quiet conversation, pick your table location carefully. It was almost impossible for me to hear the conversation at our table. However, I could hear the other (loud) person across the room just fine!

NightTown was recommended to us from the person we were celebrating. We all agreed that the food was excellent. I would love to go to a tasting menu as I had a difficult time choosing my order. Our waiter was very good, kind, pleasant and professional. We will come back again when time allows. It was a great distraction from the work day.
