Grog Shop & B Side Lounge present Behind the Bar at B Side Patio concert series!

--By The Grog Shop

With the deafening silence and halt of live music, we have decided to curate a few socially distanced patio events featuring some of Cleveland's best. Please join us as we try to keep the music going.

If the weather does not cooperate, we will move the show inside. We are selling tickets on both the Grog Shop and B side websites and are offering groups of 2-6 people to ensure safe distancing.
All patrons must wear masks upon entry and throughout the club, unless actively eating or drinking. Once you are seated at your table, you may kick back and relax, but moving around the club, in any capacity, will require your mask - and yes, that means over your nose and mouth.

While seating is very limited, group seating is available to accommodate groups of 2, 4 and 6. Please reserve and confirm your seating request asap. If you find you are unable to attend, please email us at so we can accommodate more guests.

Eat in Coventry!

There are many great food options on Coventry - feel free to grab a taco from Cilantro Taqueria, a sandwich from Tommy's, pho from Pho & Rice, sushi from Pacific East or any of the other amazing places in Coventry Village!  
B Side is committed to keeping a fun, but SAFE environment for our customers and staff!
Thank you for your continued support during these strange times.

Enjoy the Music on the Patio!

9/25 - Brent Kirby - 8pm | $10 | Tickets

Brent Kirby is a night's stroll with a rock n' roll romantic. This does not mean Kirby's merely a smitten troubadour, or a bard for the wayward but colorful life of musicians. Though his own songs bring up those immortal topics, Kirby's romanticism is much bigger than that. His songs start with the introspective stir of strum and voice, but just like his performances, quickly move outward and embrace the listener.

9/26 - Dave Smeltz - 7pm | $13 | Tickets

When David Smeltz founded I-Tal in 1978, the first Cleveland reggae band outside the Jamaican community, he launched a scene whose impact is still felt to this day. He is often called the Godfather of Cleveland Reggae.
