This place is one of the many in Cleveland that has closed for business. It's a shame. The place was really cool. Lebron James showed up one evening with his Bentley and ran over some guy's foot. It was all over the news. After that, the place turned gangsta overnight. A few people got shot there a couple of summers ago. Authorities removed Spy Bar's liquor license, and the rest is history.

Pros: It WAS a really cool place.

Cons: No one can afford a bullet proof vest, ammo, and cover.

The atmosphere here is nice here, and it is well decorated. There are private booths over to the sides to just sit with friends and relax. But there is also a main dance floor on the 1st floor, and another on the 2nd floor. It can get a bit overcrowded, and the stairs to the 2nd floor did not seem very sturdy, but overall my experience was good until the end of the night when they shut down and the entire club tried to exit from the only exit in the building at the same time. I would visit this club again, but I would suggest that they have another exit for the rush at the end of the night.

This place has really gone down hill since the first time I was here a couple years ago, before I moved to Cleveland. It used to be a cool, trendy place to go with a diverse crowd where everyone was just there to dance and have a good time. But I went just recently and won't be back anytime soon unless things change. The service was ok but nothing special, but was worse was the crowd of people there. I was purposely ran into, called names, and even had a few racy remarks thrown at me! I was totally shocked, I've never experienced that in any other Warehouse District bar/club. It seemed as if you weren't dressed like you just came from watching James and the Cavs play and wearing 10 gold chains, you weren't welcome there and were certainly made to feel that way. Definately a very thuggish crowd like someone mentioned below.

Pros: Good music, ok service, nice atmosphere

Cons: thuggish crowd, rude crowd

Spy Bar is a great place to hit up for the young crowd on Thursday nights as it gives you the option of Hip-hop on the main floor, which is unique because of its pressure sensitive floor; or you can spice up your night a little bit with Salsa downstairs. Overall it has some nice chill spots, but at times can get pretty crowded

The spy bar is a nice, quaint, place, but the security people have a major attitude problem that ruined our evening. Through out the whole night they were starring and harassing us. We felt uncomfortable and left. We will never return to the spy bar again. Also the music they played sounded really bad coming out of their speakers. Not only do they need a new security team but they need a new sound system.

Spy used to be a great place to go to dance and hear some really good hip hop. They also make really good (but overly priced) drinks. Beautiful place, but the crowd has really gone down hill. It's not diverse AT ALL. It's PACKED every Friday but draws a very young and thuggish crowd! It's a shame---all they would have to do is enforce the dress code and I think the place would draw a classy, upscale, diverse crowd like it used to. I won't be back until they do.

Pros: Beautiful club, Great music, Good drinks

Very fun/live spot, playing good music to jam/dance. Top 40/96.5 on Thurs., Fri. hip hop night. Couches and tables to relax at away from the dancing. Bartenders doing fire blowing tricks. Basement also has DJ/bar and dancing.

The Spy Bar hit the scene on west 6th as the first of its kind, was the place to be, but then went downhill. Remarkably the spy is having a great turn around effect and is making a great come back. Most is due to the Youngstown native DJ mic boogy spinnin' on the 1's and 2's. Everyone is dressed to impress, professional and civil. You wont find a bar brawl here is a place where unity really does unite the ethnic diverse crowd through music. Well worth the 5 buck cover (keeps the riff-raff-cheeps out). A must go in Cleveland, you will think you are in NYC (without the cost). 2 floors of fun, house up and hip-hop down. You can dance and be in the action or find cozy places to talk and be out of the crowd, 2 bars in one

Sunday nights music is on point, the atmosphere is is on point, prices are are on point HOWEVER Luda..& Mystikal's Move ----- Get out da way-Get out da way-Get out da way is also on point. The Club (dance floor anyway) is too small for the shorties such as myself to show off what we get from our Mamas!!!
