In The Long Goodbye, a 1953 novel by Raymond Chandler, hardboiled detective Philip Marlowe says, “A real Gimlet is half gin and half Rose’s Lime Juice, and nothing else. It beats Martinis hollow.” No offense to Marlowe, but at Cleveland’s Society Lounge, you won’t find a bottle of Rose’s. The bar makes every item from scratch, other than the liquor itself.
Smoke infusion in a cocktail goes to a whole new level in Cleveland’s Society Lounge. Made with cigar syrup, and a dramatic smoking device, the Backwoods Old Fashioned brings magic to whiskey. If you like your cocktails with a healthy amount of pageantry and drama, you’ll be in heaven with the Backwoods Old Fashioned.

Just days after we recover from our Thanksgiving food coma, it’s time for the festival of lights. The Jewish holiday Hanukkah is coming the first week in December. For anyone who really needs a drink to get through the festivities, we have you covered with some perfectly themed cocktails!
If you’re a fan of any of the eight MLB teams still playing and are lucky enough to attend a playoff game, congratulations! That’s awesome. (Unless you’re a Red Sox fan in which case it’s looking like it could be a very sad scene at Fenway on Sunday). You’ll need to plan out your eating and drinking schedule accordingly. The lines inside the stadiums are going to be extremely intimidating and frustrating to deal with. So, if you don’t want to get to the stadium as soon as the gates open and get right in the food lines, then consider finding food options around the stadium.
Repeal Day is on Monday, Dec. 5, but Society Lounge located on East 4th downtown is celebrating tomorrow! Owner and Operator of Society Lounge Joseph Fredrickson joins us to whip up three popular drinks and gives us some information on what people can expect to see tomorrow, including flapper dancers and live music.
