Beachland Ballroom And Tavern

15711 Waterloo Road

What was the Beachland before it was a music venue?

The Beachland Ballroom was built in 1950 as the Croatian Liberty Home, with the ballroom and tavern comprising the original structure. In 1976 the kitchen and back bar area were added. The Liberty Home was active on many social and political fronts and was a true Cleveland landmark before becoming Cleveland's most eclectic music club in the year 2000.

Where's the Beach? 

We've had more than a few of you ask with a name like Beachland, where's the beach? Actually it's less than a ½ mile north of here. In fact, one of the nation's best known amusement parks -- Euclid Beach – was right at the north end of E. 156th St. Euclid Beach operated from 1894 until 1969 and "Beachland" became the slang name for the whole North Collinwood neighborhood in those days. A number of reminders of the "Beachland" era remain. On E. 185th St. we still have the "Beachland Branch" of the Post Office as well as hardware stores, dry cleaners and other businesses with the "Beachland" name in the area. On Lakeshore Blvd. there is even a Beachland Presbyterian Church! Sadly, very little of the former Euclid Beach Park still exists. The actual "beach" is still there, much of which is now the Euclid Beach State Park, a public swimming area. The old Euclid Beach carved archway entrance also remains and is now serving rather incongruously as the entrance to a senior citizen high-rise apartment building.

Hands down the single best place to see a concert in Cleveland remains the Beachland Ballroom. The tavern has that neighborhood bar feel, while still having access to the incredible food menu. The ballroom can host big name, nationally touring acts, has its own bar and restrooms, and has amazing sound! I cannot say enough nice things about all of the staff members and crew that make this place run. It really sets an example for other venues in the city. 6/5 stars.

The coolest music venue I've ever been to. All the positives: -2 full bars with beers much cheaper than typical concert prices. ($3 Genny slammers if I remember correctly) -really cool record shop in the basement. -stage is elevated higher than most small rooms so sightlines aren't an issue. -sound was good. There were no negatives. Saw Say Anything for shows on back to back nights a few months ago.

Went for the OH State Yoyo contest this past weekend. The food was amazing and the bartenders were incredibly nice and fast! They handled the sudden rush with ease and took great care of everyone!

Saw Of Montreal here and I loved this place! Lots of cool people and the area is really cute and artsy. Staff was friendly and the antique shop downstairs had some really cool and reasonably priced clothes. I wish I lived in the area, I'd go there all the time!

I went here to see Coast Modern and Late Night Episode. It's a really cool, small venue. It was nice to go to a small, relaxed venue after having spent a lot of time at the bigger, really up tight venues. So yeah, this place is a cool venue.
