Coventry Village, also called Downtown Cleveland Heights, has transformed from a stale commercial business district to a hard-rocking music scene ripe for artists and hipster types. Rock club Grog Shop and its lounge counterpart B-Side are hotspots to catch a show and enjoy some drinks. The area boasts three quirky bookstores, a vinyl shop and popular local cafe, Phoenix Coffee. If the Indians or Browns have a big game, hit Winking Lizard Tavern for your classic sports bar atmosphere.
