The Grog Shop
The Grog Shop opened in September of 1992 in the Coventry Rd. neighborhood of Cleveland Heights. Though expanded in size when moved to it’s current location in 2003, the club maintains the intimacy and raw character it has always been known for. We have a full bar with an extensive list of micro-brews, imports, and domestic beer, and of course plenty of liquor.
We strive to showcase live music 7 days a week, 365 days a year. The Grog Shop has played host to countless local, national, and international touring acts for over twenty years, booking all ranges of indie rock, hip-hop, hardcore, jam, reggae, metal, electronic, comedy… You get the idea.
A few of the acts that have graced our stage are Dead Moon, Swervedriver, Elliot Smith, Rudy Ray Moore, Bright Eyes, The Ex, Supergrass, Turbonegro, GZA, Eek A Mouse, Link Wray, US Maple, Jonathon Richman, Melvins, Hank III, Brian Jonestown Massacre, Boulder, NRBQ, Oasis, The Flaming Lips, Cursive, High On Fire, Le Tigre, Royal Trux, Dick Dale, Mastodon, Guided By Voices, Hold Steady, Meat Puppets, Saul Williams, Sleater Kinney, Antiseen, Whitest Kids U Know, Daniel Johnston, Slint, Crash Worship, Devin The Dude, Failure, Built To Spill, Mike Watt, The New Bomb Turks, Damo Suzuki, Mission Of Burma, Dinosaur Jr., Fu Manchu, El-P, The Church, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Interpol, Cloud Nothings, Black Keys, Against Me, Anti-Pop Consortium, Big Freedia, Wiz Khalifa, Stiff Little Fingers, Girl Talk, Converge, Dandy Warhols, Eagles Of Death Metal, Caribou, Animal Collective, Keelhaul, Tinariwen, Lemonheads, Murder By Death, Sebadoh, Dead Meadow, Skatalites, The Locust, The Murder Junkies, W.
