The Nautica Entertainment Complex is a mixed use waterfront development located on the West Bank of Cleveland's Flats. Nautica invites you to experience exceptional dining and exhilarating entertainment in a dramatic setting where you can see giant lake freighters maneuver the Cuyahoga River. Since opening in 1987, the Nautica Entertainment Complex has attracted millions of people annually. Anchored by two dramatic jackknife bridges, the distinctive character of the Flats is accentuated by Cleveland’s finest entertainment venues.
Nautica Entertainment Complex includes the FirstEnergy Powerhouse (home to the Greater Cleveland Aquarium, Windows on the River banquet facilities and Trolley Tours); the Sugar Warehouse with Shooters on the Water and the IMPROV Comedy Club; Jacobs Pavilion (a 5,000 seat outdoor amphitheater); the Nautica Queen dining/cruise ship and Great Lakes Watersports, and the Apartments at Nautica building with McCarthy's Downtown, the Nautica Charity Poker Festivals and Art on Wheels.
At the Cuyahoga River's edge is the half-mile long Nautica Boardwalk offering special views of boats on the river and Cleveland's resurgent skyline. Stroll from Jacobs Pavilion and the FirstEnergy Powerhouse, past the Nautica Queen and Boardwalk patios, all adjacent to the Nautica Special Events Area, to the old Sugar Warehouse.
