Warehouse District/Flats



Once upon a time, the Cleveland Flats was all about industry and the Warehouse district was an adjunct to that, storing and distributing the products of Cleveland industry. Now the two adjacent downtown neighborhoods, located alongside and above the Cuyahoga River, are among the hottest places to live, work and play in Cleveland.

The historic warehouses have been converted to apartments, lofts and offices, with a host of dance clubs, restaurants, bars and shops along the street level. Nearby in the Flats, newly constructed modern condominiums also provide an alternate to the historic structures.

The Flats, which was a prime entertainment district in the ’80s and ’90s, has undergone a resurrection on both sides of the river. A new complex of hotels, residences and restaurants has sprung up on the East Bank. On the West Bank, the Great Cleveland Aquarium, Jacobs Pavilion and the Nautica Boardwalk, with venues like the Improv, the Music Box Supper Club and Shooters, offers a variety of entertainment options. In the summer, the river brims with boaters and rowing teams, taking full advantage of Cleveland’s waterfront assets.
