The review: There's something about Strongwater that just works for me. The location is cool and the space too -- though not in the bustling Short North, there's stuff popping up in this area that we can't wait to try (Land Grant Brewing, in particular!) Their cocktail menu is solid and I'd go back for Green Lawn Abbey's no doubt. Food is good too if you're looking for some nicer bar grub, but only go if you're looking for either a good cocktail or a very casual bite. They have wifi and individual glass enclosed rooms off the bar with lounges where you can hold meetings (first come first serve) -- I will definitely be working some late afternoons here!
