CLEVELAND, Ohio — Some people who like to go out for a drink at night want to avoid the fanfare that sometimes accompanies the nightlife scene. Some bars are all about seeing and being seen. A prime example is the East Bank of the Flats, which is full of crowded bars with neon signs that let everyone in the general vicinity know that cocktails are served there. For those looking for a more low-key experience, the vibe can be offputting. Thankfully, Cleveland is full of plenty of 'secret' bars that offer that low-key experience.
