The Warehouse District is a nationally recognized historic district located in downtown Cleveland. It is roughly bound by Front Avenue, Superior Avenue, West 3rd Street, and West 10th Street. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1982. There are a number of clubs and neighborhood bars, and restaurants for your entertainment, including Bar Louie, Barroco, the Blue Point, Brasa, Chop, Hanabi Sushi, Taza, Gillespie’s Map Room, Take 5, the Velvet Dog, and many more.
The Warehouse District is also home to a public art installation, Warehouse District Anthology, a collection of stories depicting the history of Cleveland’s first neighborhood. Designed like book pages, each freestanding element is the artistic creation of artist Corrie Slawson, exploring Cleveland history as curated and written by Thomas Yablonsky. Another major landmark in the Warehouse District is Cleveland’s Old Stone Church, the oldest building on Public Square and the second church ever built within the city limits.
