Market Avenue Wine Bar

Wine and friends in the heart of Ohio City

2521 Market Avenue · Cleveland OH 44113

...this ambient bar pairs an extensive wine list with plenty of small plates whipped together with seasonal, local ingredients from the nearby West Side Market.

Market Avenue’s proximity to many of Ohio City’s restaurants makes it the perfect place to stop in for pre-dinner drinks, hand choosen boutique wines and artisan beers.  Don't forget the small plates to accompany your beverages.


Hello and welcome back our thirsty and socially starved customers.   We are open and extremely excited to enter into this new chapter.  Since our unexpected close in March we have cleaned, painted and rearranged and now we are in the OPEN phase for both patio and inside bar.

Cleveland's finest patio is looking very inviting!!!  Flowers are planted, the birds are chirping and drinks are being served.  We want to make your day a little less stressful and more enjoyable and to that end we are offering our extensive wine list, craft beers and cocktails to help ease your mind.  We have removed seating in compliance with social spacing so please come in, put your feet up and chill.  The Burgundy room, the front bar and the patio await your arrival.

The hours of operation:  4 pm to 11 pm weekdays, Saturdays 2:30 pm until midnight and Sunday 4 pm-10 pm.  (Bloody Mary's and Mimosa cocktails can be obtained through the Koffie Cafe on Sunday- prior to wine bar opening.)  Our Governor, Mike DeWine has all bars and restaurants giving last call at 10 PM with drinks off the tables and partrons out by 11PM.

Thank you for supporting small businesses. Cheers

Knowledgeable staff, great selection with some quality wines. Watch the year ordered and given. Our first bottle was... a better vintage than was listed and the second bottle was a lower value wine than listed so it balanced out for us. Prices are reasonable for the quality and more

I once brought a date here who called this place 'perfect'. And I was on a first date, and she was smart and lovely and... the night was perfect. But despite all that, we didn't click, and after I walked her to her car later that night, I called the girl I did click with and we're still together 9 years later. This little wine bar is magic to me, because it was able to define how even if the atmosphere and environment is everything you could want, it is most important to be sure of what's more
