Nighttown Customer Leaves $3,000 Tip Ahead of Club’s Second COVID-Related Closure

Nighttown, the iconic jazz and blues club on Cedar Road in Cleveland Heights open since 1965, will voluntarily close for the second time this year due to concerns over coronavirus. In an unusual year, something truly unusual happened during brunch Sunday afternoon before Nighttown closed. A customer ordered a Stella Artois and handed the bill to owner Brendan Ring. “Take care of this. Split it among waitstaff,” owner Brendan Ring remembers the customer telling him before he walked away. “Oh my God! He left a $300 tip on a $7 bar tab and then I put my glasses on. Right? And I looked down and I said, ‘Oh my God.’ It was a $3,000 tip!” Dan, DAN, DAAAAAAAN!
