Corryville

Often lumped in with Clifton, where UC resides to the west, Corryville has its own special mix of residential and retail built along a business district that runs the length of Short Vine. Home to music fan favorites like Bogart's live concert hall and Mike's Music's collection of vintage guitars; the Public Library's branch is in the handsomely renovated Carnegie building, and UC's Niehoff Urban Studio is headquartered in a turn of the century dance hall across the street. Mecklenburg Gardens, where German food is as authentic as it gets, is a great space to grab a beer while the Highland Coffee House has been serving java to students and professors for over two decades.
