Welcome

Welcome to Speak of the Devil, a cocktail bar in the heart of historic 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.

Reservations are taken up to one month in advance.  The number of seats available for reservations per night is limited.

We have only two areas to seat parties of 6 or more, please contact us and make a reservation if you are coming with a large group.
