Life is better with live music. And summer is better with boat docks and Lake Erie sunsets and a drink in your hand.

Whiskey Island Still & Eatery offers all of that, all summer long.

The casual restaurant, with its sprawling patio and picnic tables just down the road from Edgewater Park, will host bands Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights and most Saturday and Sunday afternoon. You can bring the family, or the gang, and kick back by the water, pretending you’re on vacation.

“You’re five minutes from a resort destination,” manager Tim Poole said. “All your troubles and head aches melt away. You can sit in the sun with a drink in your hand.”

Parking is free for the dozens of performances, with outside seating for 600 guests. That includes a 40-foot bar under a pavilion, just in case the summer sun gets marred by a storm. There is no cover charge.

The Cleveland season starts May 4 with the Sellouts, at 2 p.m.. See last year’s Sellouts performance here.

The restaurant is open weekends until Memorial Day weekend, when it opens seven days a week for the summer.

Summer is here, Whiskey Island 2018. The Sellouts play now until 6pm & we'll be showing the Kentucky Derby!
