The Flats information
The Flats, an old industrial zone turned nightlife hub on the Cuyahoga River, has had a checkered life. After years of neglect, it's on the upswing once again. The East Bank has a waterfront boardwalk, stylish restaurants, bars and outdoor concert pavilion. The West Bank is a bit grittier and farther flung, with an old garage turned brewery/winery, a skateboard park and some vintage dive bars among its assets.
