Welcome to Speak of the Devil, a neighborhood cocktail lounge in the heart of downtown Lorain, Ohio. We believe that a cocktail bar should craft the finest cocktails possible – with the freshest ingredients, the highest quality spirits and bitters available and with the proper execution and technique. That same care and attention to detail goes into everything we do from our beer and wine selections to our service and bar ambiance itself.
