whiskey light party

The lighting of the Whiskey Light over the Roundhouse Bar entrance is an island tradition that dates back dozens of years. It is an acknowledgement to boaters and islanders alike that “the bar is now open” and the season has begun. All of Put-in-Bay gathers together to celebrate the beginning of new island season.  The Roundhouse Bar has long been an island favorite. Busy summer weekends are hosted by different live bands and entertainers.

Lighting the Whiskey light symbolizes the unity and celebratory energy of the Put-in-Bay people. The actual lighting usually happens around 2 PM and there is always some unique entertainer playing music and entertaining the crowd to open the  season. It is truly a great event. Even if you don’t like the whiskey light, who doesn’t like the Round House Bar? Visit our entertainment page for additional information and to see who is playing.
