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.

WINE

Bubbles

Mumm Napa Brut Prestige – $12
bright citrus, red apple, stone fruit and creamy vanilla aromas, with hints of toast, honey and gingerbread spice. Its vibrant flavors are balanced by fine acidity and a rich, lingering finish

Archer Roose Bubbly – $7
Crisp, clean, and dry with fruit-forward notes of pear and apple.
hailing from Veneto, Italy, the true birthplace of Prosecco

Red

Tribute Cabernet Sauvignon – $10 glass/$35 bottle
Opulent and bold with aromas and flavors of cassis, blackberry, black cherry and ripe plum that give way to earthy notes, tea, vanilla bean and shaved dark chocolate. Well-integrated tannins build to a long, velvety finish. This Cabernet underwent malolactic fermentation before 13 months of aging on toasted French and American oak.

Andrea Formilli Fendi Rosso – $12 glass/$40 bottle
red berries and jams. Toasted notes present but not overpowering; crisp, with hints of white pepper, vibrant acidity, silky tannins with excellent persistence

White

Three Pairs Chenin Blanc – $10 glass/$35 bottle
inviting aromas of juicy tropical fruits, flavors of ripe pears with hints of honey and vanilla on the palate, rounded out by a clean, lingering finish

Davis Bynum Chardonnay – $12 glass/$40 bottle
beautiful aromas of toasted sesame, marzipan, meyer lemon and baked apple. On the palate the wine opens with toasty brioche, hazelnut and baking spices, with a lush finish that is balanced with acidity and a rich creaminess

Celebration Bottle (for that special occasion)

Chimney Rock Stags Leap District Cabernet Sauvignon – $125 bottle
rich and savory with plum and black cherry flavors and hints of dried fig, vanilla, and floral. On the palate this wine is smooth and viscous in the midpalate, full-bodied, and the tannin structure is firm but very polished.

Reservations

Thank you for considering spending an evening with us!

We are a neighborhood bar in downtown Lorain, Ohio. Our space is small and the majority of the house is set for walk-in business.  We have a very limited reservation space. 

That said, here is our reservation policy:

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.

During patio season (Memorial Day to Labor Day) reservations for the patio will NOT be accepted.  Patio will be walk-in ONLY.

Reservations must be made in advance (no “day of” reservations).

For the sake of service and expediency, we reserve the right to present parties of 6 or more one check.

Our house is your house. Sit back, relax, and enjoy your experience. We kindly ask for you to consider your neighbor or your friend who is waiting to enjoy the same experience. That said, in the event that we are holding the door and have parties waiting to get in, we may ask that you please limit your experience to 2 hours.
