This three-level night club pulsing with DJ-spun Top 40s remix music, R&B, hip hop and pop pulls Cleveland’s youngish professional crowd to the dance floor. Each level of the Velvet Dog offers music for a different mood. In summer, the rooftop patio buzzes with energy and conversations hum. Known for having the best rooftop view of the city at night, Velvet Dog maximizes its reputation with its Paint the Town Memorial Day event. Street performers add to the party scene that kicks off the short-lived patio season. Remember, this is Cleveland. No one wants to be up on a patio roof when frigid winds blast over Lake Erie—except on New Year’s Eve, when the patio is heated and enclosed with a tent.
