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
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.
Where do I park?
We do have a small parking lot available to our patrons, but that fills up fast
on big nights. The good news is that there are a lot of spaces available within
three blocks of the Beachland. You can park on both sides of Waterloo and you
can also park on most nearby side streets. Parking is also permitted in the Key Bank lot , despite the signage, as long as you do not leave your car overnight. Key Bank is just west of the club on Waterloo. Be sure to read all the street signs
and don't park where they tell you not to. Please do not block driveways.
There is limited handicapped parking available in our parking lot. We are wheelchair/handicapped accessible through the side door of the building. If you need assistance please find a manager and they will be more than happy to help you. You are more than welcome to call us ahead of time (216-383-1124), with any questions or concerns.
