We were here for a concert on a Saturday night. Parking was easy, and pretty cheap at $5. The venue is great, with lots of bleacher seating for those who want to see without being squished in the crowd. Great view of the city and the water behind the stage. Drinks were very over-priced, but that's what you'd expect from... More

The Flats are under major renovations from its high years but so is Cleveland. The Nautica is a bit if an access challenge due to the narrow streets and recommend you look at a map so you know the ins and outs if you haven't been there before. Parking fills quickly so I recommend you get there early and even... More

The show was great but that was all flogging Molly's doing. The sound was not great alot of high pitched feedback. Only one women's bathroom as apposed to 2 for men. The venue was not well ventilated. I'm from new York and it's illegal to smoke at events. I don't know about Ohio but it was not pleasant that smoking... More

I was at Jacob's Pavilion this past week for a show and bought a double Tito's and water for $13.00 within about 5 minutes the ice had melted. I returned to same bar to ask for a cup of ice to add to my drink and was told that they couldn't give me anymore ice. It was same cashier who... More

What a great venue for a concert! The pavilion is the perfect size, acoustics are great and having downtown Cleveland as a backdrop make for a wonderful venue for a concert. The Brit Floyd concert was amazing!

The show was great, the bleacher seating sucked, bought General Admission seating, didn't realize we would be forced to stay in bleachers. Very disorganized trying to upgrade tickets which never happened because they were "sold out", yet there was a tone of space on the floor. No grassy areas at all, concrete jungle. Drinks are completely over priced. The sound... More

We see a lot of live music...all over the country, and this is one of our new favorite venues. It's beautiful, with the river in the background and the city skyline. And we loved that it is perfect rain or shine. We'll be back!

Visiting Cleveland for two nights on recent stay we went to concert here one night. They serve lots of alcohol so people are constantly on the move drinking, walking and talking through the entire show. If you want to see and hear the music try to get seats that aren't on the bleachers. They are uncomfortable and distracting since no... More

Acoustics are good and view of downtown and the river is nice. Had a good time and they sell a decent variety of alcohol and food, although it would have been nice to have a few other selections for food. My real only disappointment was they did not have a grassy area like most pavilions. I don't like seating when... More

We had pit tickets, so the acoustics were pretty good. The volume could have been slightly lower to allow crisper sound. It was sometimes hard to understand the lyrics. I loved all the drink/snack stands and restrooms were clearly marked. The ships sailing by and all the seagulls were an added bonus!
