An Ohio City institution, ABC the Tavern has been around for over 20 years. Randy Kelly, Linda Syrek & Alan Glazen reopened the ABC in 2009 bringing their knowledgeable service, huge drink selection, great food and fun vibe to W. 25th Street. They're proud to be part of the revitalization of this historical Cleveland neighborhood.

In May 2013 the A-Z Team brought the classic character of the ABC to the Uptown Arts & Entertainment District in University Circle, sharing the same quality, service and good time with Cleveland's East Side. Join us for great food, drink and entertainment!

We've got you covered from a-z
