Circle a Hip Square

Gordon Square

Gordon Square is apart of the larger Detroit shoreway area. This area of Cleveland is an arts district on the west side which boasts many forms of entertainment, from theaters and galleries, to shops and restaurants. There is plenty of parking both on street and off, Clevelanders will get a chance to discover hidden hot spots and Out-of-towners will love being able to get out of the car and stroll around. This local gem neighborhood has something for everyone and if you want to circle this hip square you're in for a great evening out.

Circle the Square

Even in the evenings when Shops are beginning to close Gordon Square is still a great place to take a stroll. There are beautiful shop fronts and quirky sites to see. You can take a walk around and discover new things or sit and chat on the benches, which are lit up at night, that are around the neighborhood.

Coffee and Conversation

Gypsy Beans and Baking Co. Is a neighborhood independently owned cafe with a traditional feel. Locally roasted coffees, fresh seasonal pastries, and a relaxing atmosphere (with free wifi!) will spark conversations. Coffee and conversation is a great way to wait for the start of a show at the theater or cinema.

Motion Entertainment

Capitol Theater is a cornerstone of the Gordon Square neighborhood. Originally opened and operated from the 1920's to the late 1960's, this theater began as a silent film house. The building was restored and renovated in 2003 and finally re-opened in 2009 with three screens. The latest block buster or an independent film will captivate you and end the night on a high note.
