CoolCleveland is the award-winning online source for cool events, news, people, neighborhoods, shops, restaurants, clubs and videos in northeast Ohio since 2002.
JUST THE COOL STUFF Other apps use automated software that never gets it quite right. Their writers are thousands of miles away, aggregating secondhand news from other sites, producing listings that are often out-of-date and inaccurate.
CoolCleveland's correspondents and editors keep tabs on people making things happen in the region and draw on their own extensive knowledge of the area to create all-original content. We stay on top of what the area’s creative thinkers, artists and entrepreneurs are up to. We bring you news of exciting projects, positive changes and the latest discussions making the rounds of the grassroots. We are not the daily newspaper, feeding you a depressing diet of predictable ideas and hackneyed hype, but a cornucopia of curated content, updated constantly and available when you want it.
Our content is all local, all social, and all mobile. Celebrate Cleveland’s coolness with a focus on the coolest events, people and destinations, all updated 24/7 on any device.

App Store Reviews
Hi216, 5 stars:
This app is great everyone should have it. Yeah, it ask for the same basic info as the rest of the world does: name-email-make a password. The rest is optional. I would like to see more Cleveland's shops and upscale nightlife section.
Get this app
The Cool Neighborhoods are easy to use & the maps are incredible. Having all the coolest events & videos & news at my fingertips is amazingly useful. Even the Weather is handy. I love the Cleveland area & use this app every day.
