Hamiltons Martini Bar
(216) 241-7721
1415 Euclid Ave
Cleveland, OH
Description
Hamiltons Martini Bar - Twenty dollar cover? Nope. Celebrities? None. Hamiltons Martini Bar is nowhere near the pages of Us Weekly or TMZ, but hey, beer is beer, whiskey is whiskey. A friendly neighborhood bar where you can pretty much wear whatever the hell you want. (But leave the cargo-shorts at home.)

Boneyard Beer Farm
(216) 575-0232
748 Prospect Ave E
Cleveland, OH
Description
Boneyard Beer Farm - A sports bar with a great happy hour crowd, especially on Fridays. The place for 20 and 30-somethings to mingle over a drink, but beware of the occasional cheesy pick-up line. Tons of beers on tap make it the perfect place to grab a brew as long as you can brave the crowds.

Fishbones Beer Farm
(216) 575-0232
748 Prospect Ave E
Cleveland, OH
Description
Fishbones Beer Farm - If you need a place to unwind after another week of mindless TPS reports, Fishbones Beer Farm, located at [Address], might just do the trick. Pretty barebones and without fanfare, but the prices are reasonable and there's no hassle at the door.

Beachcliff Tavern
(440) 333-4686
19245 Detroit Rd
Rocky River, OH
Description
Beachcliff Tavern - If you're looking to kick back, Beachcliff Tavern, located at [Address], is a safe bet. It's not the kind of place that's going to break your wallet, so that's more you have left over for happy hour.

1917 W 25th St.
Cleveland, OH
 
Office
(216) 881-1144
3230 Euclid Ave
Cleveland, OH
Description
Office - Want to throw a huge party with 300 of your closest friends? Office is probably not the place to do it. But if you're interested in grabbing a quick drink and possibly some bar food, Office is more than able to oblige.

Grand Prix of Cleveland
1331 Euclid Ave
Cleveland, OH
Description
Grand Prix Of Cleveland - There's not much to be said about the cocktails at [name]. They're not necessarily cheap, but they're as tasty as they are potent...a delicious and dangerous combination.

Swinging Door
(440) 331-9710
21093 Center Ridge Rd
Rocky River, OH
Description
Swinging Door - Some bars are legendary. The kind of watering hole that you'll remember for most of your life. Swinging Door? It's not one of them. Located at [Address], it's pretty much your vanilla bar. Which isn't a bad thing.

Linden Tavern
(440) 333-1609
19865 Detroit Rd
Rocky River, OH
Description
Linden Tavern is the type of place you start off your night. The drinks are cheap and strong but the crowd isn't the type to get the party started. Grab a quick drink here and then head out to the real party. -Review of Linden Tavern

Stocking up your home bar

By Russ Cobbe

Last week we discussed what bartending equipment you should have in your home bar. This week we will cover the ingredients you need to complete the setup of your home bar.

Your main selection of alcohol should include 750ml bottles of the following: Gin, Vodka, Rum, Bourbon, Scotch, Tequila, Vermouth, Red and White Wine, Brandy, Port & Sherry plus whatever liqueurs are most palatable to you and your friends. The most popular liqueurs to have would be coffee, orange, irish cr�me and cr�me de cassis.

Next up would be bitters. Bitters are made from a variety of roots, barks, berries and herbs. They generally add a bit of zing to your drinks. You should have Angostura, Peychaud's, Orange and Abbotts Aged bitters.

For mixing you'll need a good variety to make a lot of different recipes. The standards include multiple bottles of Mineral water, cola, ginger ale, club soda, tonic water, lemon/lime sodas and fresh juices (orange, pineapple, lemon, lime and tomato). Don't forget to have lots of ice on hand. If you make your own ice use bottled water so you don't get a chlorine flavour to your drinks. Ice should go in the glass first to avoid splashing and to cool the ingredients as they get added.

Finally you will need some things to garnish the drinks to add that special touch. The essentials include cocktail onions, stuffed olives, lemons, limes, oranges, strawberries, celery stalks, Tabasco sauce, maraschino cherries, pineapple...
