Akron Night Life

Hot Nights in a Cool City

Start the night right with a satisfying meal at any one of Akron's delectable restaurants. How about the Diamond Grille for a satisfying steak or filet of salmon? Try traditional American fare at Anthe's, or country cooking in a relaxed setting at the Cracker Barrel. Or for a taste of history, try the Menches Brothers Restaurant. Did you know that two of America's most popular foods were created by the Menches brothers? In 1885 at the Erie County Fair in New York, the brothers Frank and Charles Menches ran out of pork for their popular sausage sandwiches. A quick-thinking substitution of chopped beef, brown sugar, coffee and other ingredients resulted in the hamburger! In 1904 they created the cornucopia ice cream cone. Both family recipes are still served here. For Italian, try Papa Joe's, the Spaghetti Warehouse, or Bricco, Italian cuisine with a decidedly California flare. Wine aficionados should definitely check out Tangier Restaurant and Cabaret, opened in 1948, the Tangier has hosted such luminaries as Tina Turner, The Temptaitions and Charlie Daniels, and with its own newly-built wine cellar, there's sure to be a favorite for even the most discerning palate. Other entertainment options include Hilarities Comedy Club, Carousel Dinner Theater or Posh Nite Club and Bistro. Skip on over to Cleveland Heights for billiards and fun at Jillians or if you find yourself in Akron during the summer months, catch a production at Porthouse Theater. You owe it to yourself to visit Akron and find out what all the fuss is about!
