Downtown Cleveland is the central business district of the City of Cleveland and Northeast Ohio, United States. It is the economic and symbolic center of the Cleveland-Akron-Canton, OH Combined Statistical Area. As of 2000, 100,000 people worked in the district; as of 2012, it contained more than 16 million square feet of rentable office space.
Reinvestment in the area in the mid-1990s spurred a rebirth that continues to this day, with the residential population growing from 7,261 in 1990 to 9,599 in 2000 and 11,693 in 2010. It had the largest population growth, by percentage, of any Cleveland neighborhood over that time and is Ohio's most populous downtown. Between 2010 and 2014, it saw more than $4.5 billion in residential and commercial developments. In 2012, Forbes included Downtown Cleveland in a list of "15 U.S. Cities Emerging Downtown".

  • Wow! The architectural type and history of this building should not be missed, but neither should the experience of shopping in this upscale grocery store. It may seem small at a glance, but nice...

  • A stunning building with an atrium and speakeasy that will make you wonder if you’re really in a grocery store. My wife and I arrived from Cleveland and needed some supplies for the weekend. She checked maps and said, “This place looks really cool.” Parking in the area wasn’t the easiest, so she went in alone as I tended the car. We made sure to return the next day so I could experience it and my sister-in-law as well. What we saw did not disappoint. You enter through a normal looking grocery store, but when you step into the atrium, everything changes. You look up three stories to a vaulted ceiling. Inside the atrium is a deli and other made to order food. The entrance directly to this area is open weekdays from 11:00-2:00. The second floor is where the beer, wine and liquor is. Apart from just purchasing, they have a tasting area and a bar. The wine can be self-serve by the glass and décor is beautiful up there. While we didn’t stop for a drink and disappointed the bartender, they were so friendly and it would have been delightful to hang out there. There is also something called The Vault that was not open when we were there, but it is a speakeasy style bar set in an old bank vault. Heinen’s would be an incredible place to hang out with friends or go on a date. You can taste several offerings before grabbing a nice cocktail in The Vault and then grab snacks on your way out.
  • What an unique place. It's basically a grocery store inside a historic building. We especially enjoyed the self serve wine tasting bar on the second floor. The rotunda is absolutely breathtaking. Definitely worth a visit!
  • Had the ice cream from this place and it was DIVINE. I had the roasted pistachio because I figured I'd try something different and it was easily the best icecream I'd ever had. My husband had the chocolate chip and it was also amazing. The building itself is very beautiful and I would definitely say this is a place to check out if you're visiting Cleveland.
  • I was impressed with the design of this building, which used to be a bank and now a supermarket. It is wonderful! Customer service outstanding. We spoke with the manager, and he was so polite and helpful. The variety of food and the presentation were excellent. The wine tasting stations... I loved them. I was genuinely impressed and delighted with this supermarket.
  • Nice place with access to nice food though they have prepared foods but no way to warm up the food you buy. I asked several employees and there is just no access to warming up food so a bit disappointed that a spot with seating to eat the food you buy has no microwave.
