Playhouse Square SkyfoxCLEVELAND — The Dazzle the District transformation is underway in the Playhouse Square neighborhood.

Two new arches were added overnight Friday. Playhouse Square officials say the arches are gateways that will identify the Playhouse Square neighborhood. The shortest gateway spans Huron Road at Prospect and the longest gateway spans. E. 14th at Prospect.

Two more signs will come at a later date and will span Euclid Avenue at E. 17th Street and East 13th Street.

Other elements of the Dazzle the District transformation include an improved outdoor experience for patrons with a fire pit and a revamped Star Plaza, which can host concerts and lectures.

A new dining experience, Dynomite, by Cowell & Hubbard’s Zack Bruell, will feature sandwiches, wine and beer.

Dazzle the District will also feature retro signage and lighting features. One of the most exciting additions will be a chandelier with more than 4,200 crystals suspended from a 44-foot high steel structure.

The official unveiling of Dazzle the District will be on May 2.

    Now close down that black bar down the corner where people are being shot every month, the one that has a sign at the bar that says “Cleveland’s Best Black Bar”.
