The sun is out, the snow has melted and the Progressive Field enhancements are moving right along. Renovations are still on schedule to be completed by the Indians Home Opener — on April 10 against Detroit.
The glass doors have gone in at the two-story, indoor-outdoor bar, officially named “The Corner.” Fans voted on bar names and chose “the Corner,” which pays homage to Tom Hamilton’s signature introduction – “We’re under way from the corner of Carnegie and Ontario.”

New two-story, indoor-outdoor bar features dramatic views of the field and city, nearly 40 taps of craft and domestic beers, fire pit on rooftop deck
Bar interior design will feature wood and more elements from the Columbus Road Bridge in the Flats, as preserved by local company Rustbelt Reclamation
Cleveland, OH—The Cleveland Indians announced on Thursday that after Tribe fans voted online in recent weeks, the new two-story bar in the Right Field District at Progressive Field will be named “The Corner.”
The bar’s logo and signage also will include “Carnegie and Ontario,” an homage to Tom Hamilton’s signature introduction – “We’re under way from the corner of Carnegie and Ontario” — on the Indians Radio Network. The indoor-outdoor bar will include nearly 40 beers on tap and a fire pit on the rooftop deck.
The new bar, bar back and canopy will feature elements salvaged from the old Columbus Road Bridge in Cleveland’s Flats. Additionally, The Corner features free-standing furniture that incorporates bridge decking and hand-made sand-casting patterns recovered from a foundry formerly located on East 71st Street. The Indians commissioned Cleveland-based Rustbelt Reclamation to design and construct these features as means to bring some of Cleveland into the ballpark.
Fans can enjoy The Corner with the Indians new $13 District Ticket presented by SportsTime Ohio. For $13, fans get a Standing Room Only ticket, and the first drink – 12-ounce beer (for those 21 and over), Pepsi product or bottled water – is on the Tribe! More information can be found at Indians.com/DistrictTicket.

Popular local restaurants join Melt, Barrio, Sweet Moses in newly renovated Right Field District at ballpark
The Cleveland Indians announced on Wednesday that Great Lakes Brewing Co. and Dynomite Burgers will serve their unique food and beverages at Progressive Field in 2015.
Great Lakes and Dynomite join the previously announced Melt, Barrio and Sweet Moses in the newly renovated Right Field District, which will provide a dramatically enhanced fan experience at the ballpark made possible in large part by the club’s partners at Delaware North.
Their additions continue the club’s long-standing commitment to working with local food-service providers & producers, including Pierre’s Ice Cream, Sugardale Hot Dogs, Smucker’s, Shearer’s Snacks , Schwebel’s breads, Mitchell’s ice cream and the world famous Bertman Ballpark Mustard.
“We’re proud to partner with two more Cleveland-based restaurants, adding to our long history of working with local companies,” Indians Vice President of Concessions Kurt Schloss said. “Our partnership with Delaware North and our local restaurants continues to provide variety and value to our Cleveland fans.”
Great Lakes’ options will include its popular pretzel and sausage offerings – the Brewer’s Barley pretzels made from spent brewer’s grain, and the Dortmunder Gold bratwurst, served with onions, peppers, and Bertman Ballpark Mustard. Several of Great Lakes’ award-winning lagers and ales will be on tap, including year-round favorites, seasonals and rotating pub exclusive selections such as the baseball-themed Rally Drum Red Ale.
“We’re excited to offer our beer and food to Tribe fans and be a part of the exciting things the Indians have going on, both on and off the field. Cleveland’s our hometown and the Indians are our hometeam, so this is a perfect partnership in our eyes,” said Great Lakes co-founder Patrick Conway.
Dynomite will provide fans with a new burger option in the ballpark and offer fans its signature milkshakes, made with ice cream from Cleveland’s Pierre’s Ice Cream Co. Its selection will include the Parallax (bacon and BBQ mayo), Cowell and Hubbard (mozzarella and smoked paprika mayo), L’Albatros (caramelized onions and red peppers) and Chinato (balsamic red onions and mortadella) burgers.
“We’re proud to be an anchor in Cleveland and join with another Cleveland institution,” said well-known Cleveland restaurateur Zack Bruell. “We’re looking forward to Tribe fans experiencing our unique burgers and shakes.”
Great Lakes and Dynomite join Melt, Barrio and Sweet Moses – announced in January — in the new Right Field District. Melt will offer five of its signature grilled cheese offerings, while Barrio will offer its fresh, flavorful tacos and nachos that have become a popular destination in Tremont, Lakewood and now Downtown Cleveland. Sweet Moses will offer its delicious homemade ice cream sundaes and treats.
