We tried Brothers lounge because of a band that was going to play but decided to have dinner also. We arrived at 7:30pm when the venue opened but I don't think they were ready to open because the service was horrible for the first part of the night. Slow slow slow. The menu was very limited but the food was... More

We love going here for a variety of reasons: music (duh), food, great martinis, service, great sound in the concert hall, patio, the entertaining regulars, on and on. Each section at Brothers offers something different. The pub area is large and you have to walk through here past the kitchen to get to the wine bar or back concert area.... More

Stopped in for a fund raiser. The music was great. Our waitress went out of her way to keep us in beverages.

Service is fine, but I have no idea where the reviews came from. Even invited the waitress that had finished work and was sitting alone at the bar for a... More

I've only been to observe live music at the back bar. Great atmosphere and services. Good spot for party events too.

This is an interesting place. When you walk in it is pretty small however it looks as if it is decorated in a mahogany wood from floor to ceiling. There is a area in the back where they have a musician from time to time. It was a $5 cover charge so we decided not to go in. My wife... More

The food was overpriced and underwhelming. However the piano/jazz room and concert hall where outstanding! Local & national acts... Keep an eye on the schedule. Go see a band you never heard of before.....You will likely be pleasantly surprised!

Brothers is a long time Cleveland institution that until about ten years ago was a dive bar that featured blues legend Robert Junior Lockwood in it's hayday. Then it was bought by the Riemenschneider brothers who spent a couple of million dollars and turned it into a thoroughly modern music venue with a distinct focus on local talent. There are... More

great service, decent prices and easy to find location. The live music is really why myself and my fiancé come here. We just love the back area along with the little front area,for acoustic shows.
