Engaged Citizens. Innovative Ideas.


Thanks to everyone who came out to “par-tee” with us as we celebrated 20 years of service to The Heights!

About this event

It’s time for the most anticipated Cleveland Heights party of the summer. Join us as we celebrate 20 years of service while dancing the night away.

Enjoy heavy appetizers, local libations and desserts from a variety of the Heights’ finest establishments.

Most of all, enjoy the company of residents, like you, who care deeply about the future of our community and want to see it grow and thrive!

Our 2022 honoree is Brendan Ring.

A native of Ireland and a naturalized U.S. citizen, Brendan Ring arrived in New York City in 1984, eventually ending up as the owner of Joxer Daley’s, a legendary bar in Queens.  Following his American-born wife’s job, Brendan and Siobhan moved to Cleveland in 1992 where he took a job working for well-known restaurateur, John Barr, owner of Nighttown, Watership Down and Raintree.  Quickly working his way up to manager of Nighttown, Brendan purchased the restaurant in 2001.  Over the next 29 years, Brendan created a restaurant and nightclub unlike any other in N.E. Ohio, warranting repeated inclusion on Downbeat’s List of the Best Jazz Clubs in the World.

Additional details available with ticket purchase.
