Roadside Taverns Midwest

 

Euclid Tavern
Cleveland, OH

The Euclid Tavern was a very old bar near Case Western Reserve, so it always had college business. The Euclid started to have live music in the 70's, slowly got run down, and ended up as a club with obscure punk bands, right up to 2001. The movie "Light of Day" was filmed here.

Many thanks to Steve Felder for photos and info.
