The Barley House has been many things in its lifetime. It was, and still is, a nightlife destination on West Sixth. Its menu offerings are better than the average bar food. It's the home of rowdy Sunday Browns tailgates and live radio shows. Cleveland's athletes still drop by every weekend, making it a place to see and be seen. But somewhere along the way, it also became the best spot for EDM music in town. There was always music, of course, and plenty of DJs. But Barley started bringing in notable national acts to hold down the weekends. While the names might not be all that familiar to folks not into the scene, those who are in the know give Barley their enthusiastic stamp of approval. Hell, chances are they left at 2 a.m. Saturday morning only to come straight back on Sunday morning to catch the 92.3 The Fan tailgate and scope out the latest Browns loss with some pals.
