For its next History on Tap event, the Cleveland History Center will honor Leo’s Casino, a legendary concert club that opened in 1963 in the lounge of the old Quad Hall Hotel at 7500 Euclid Ave.

According to a press release about the event, guests will immerse themselves in 1960s Cleveland and "enjoy the sights and sounds of the famous Cleveland R&B and jazz club." There’ll be music and archival images of musicians such as Otis Redding, Aretha Franklin, and Ray Charles, all of whom played the venue before it shuttered in 1972 and was eventually torn down.



The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame as well as the R&B Hall of Fame have partnered with the Cleveland History Center to provide a “unique, one-of-a-kind look at the music scene in 1960s Cleveland.”

The event takes place from 5 to 9 p.m. on Saturday, Feb, 22. Open bar tickets cost $25, or $15 for WRHS members. General admission tickets are free for WRHS members and $10 for the general public.
