There are some eating and entertainment venues here, but mostly noisy bars. Some reclaimed old industrial architecture. You can see the river that caught on fire and Cleveland's industrial past. Could be much more interesting.

The Flats is a blast! The restaurants and clubs were packed, people were taxiing from side to side. Was such a good time, but it gets really busy!

Resties/Bars on the water! What's better than that? The only issue is the crowds and parking so if you're planning on going, GO EARLY.

To many overpriced BS restaurants in this area that was once a thriving party area in Cleveland. The best bars were basically forced out by greedy developers that were in tight with the political scene.

The flats seem to go from highs to lows and back again. Right now it appears to be on an upswing which is great.

There are so many restaurants / clubs down in the Flats that it would take more than a month to patronize them all!
