Downtown Cleveland

Working in downtown Cleveland has allowed me to experience many of the activities it has to offer.  Every week brings on a new and exciting experience.  Luckily for me, Cohen & Company is located in the heart of Cleveland, Playhouse Square.  Here are some of the things I got to experience as an intern, and hopefully you do too.
First was our trip to Hofbrauhaus, hosted by the PCS management team. Hofbrauhaus is a German style restaurant that aims to give you the experience of actually being in Germany.  They did an amazing job, between the wienerschnitzels, giant beers and dancing on the tables. Everyone had a good time and it was a great opportunity to meet the management team!
Another great thing about Cleveland is the countless happy hours that you can attend after a long work week.  Getting together a group of interns and going to hangout after work is a great opportunity to get to know the people that you’re working with.  You have countless options on where to go.  My advice is try a different place each time, every place offers a unique experience and it’s a great way to explore the city. 
Going to sporting events in Cleveland offers an experience that can’t be replicated anywhere.  The fans in Cleveland are absolute die-hard fans and are fun to be around.  Interning at Cohen & Company puts you within walking distance to the Quicken Loans Arena and Progressive Field.  The summer internship put me downtown during the Cavs run in the playoffs and the Indians mid-season.  I’ve already gone to multiple Indians games with several other interns and we plan on going to more before the summer ends.  Being downtown during the Cavs playoff run was amazing, even though I didn’t get to go to a game.  Just being able to experience the atmosphere of the city was great.  Not only are sporting events a fun way to get acclimated to the city, it’s an opportunity to get to know everyone you work with.
There are countless other things that Cleveland has to offer including the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame, the Art Museum, Playhouse Square, Cleveland Botanical Gardens and much more. The firm offers a chance to be in the center of all things Cleveland. Working in Cleveland is an amazing experience, and gives you the chance to immerse yourself in the city.
