The Nautica Queen offers a unique dining adventure for people of all ages. While aboard Cleveland’s most popular dinner cruise ship, visitors cruise the Cayuhoga River traveling under historic jackknife bridges, seeing lakefront-bound freighters up close and experiencing the downtown Cleveland skyline. All cruises include an unlimited buffet and musical entertainment.
The Nautica Queen is perfect for large groups including Weddings, Corporate Outings, Birthday Parties, Family and Military Reunions, Proms and many more. A staff of professional party planners and culinary experts is available to insure every detail will meet your expectations.

Windows on the River
Spectacular inside and out, Windows on the River prepares and presents gourmet cuisine in a dramatic yet comfortable setting with dazzling views of Cleveland’s unique signature bridges and sparkling skyline. Located in the heart of the Nautica Entertainment Complex, guests can enjoy the best of Cleveland’s waterfront and nightlife before and after an event.
The facility features three wonderfully irresistible rooms- the beautiful Bridge View Room, the breathtaking City View Room, and the River View Room – all reflecting the elegant charm of Cleveland’s surrounding riverfront area.
Windows on the River has been serving the greater Cleveland community since 1990 in the century-old FirstEnergy Powerhouse. The Powerhouse, known for its tall smokestacks and beautifully arched windows, originally powered Cleveland’s electric railway and streetcar system and is now a National Historic Landmark.
Reno’s Neon Line District
This urban mixed-use master-planned district is one of the largest redevelopment projects of its kind. The area encompasses 20 city blocks that will be known as Reno’s Neon Line District. Jacobs Entertainment has already invested more than $100 million in the acquisition of over 50 separate properties. The district stretches from downtown Reno’s West Street to Keystone Avenue, and from Interstate 80 South to West Second Street.
The centerpiece of the district is the creation of a $25 million, half-mile-long installation of public art along West Fourth Street, that will be known as Reno’s Neon Line. Currently, under construction, Reno’s Neon Line will host rotating artwork, with the initial artwork of the series to include sculptures formerly exhibited at Burning Man.
The Glow Plaza
The Glow Plaza, Reno’s newest outdoor event space, features free live concerts spanning the summer months of July through September. To complement the live shows, the Glow Plaza also hosts a variety of local food trucks, rotating on a weekly basis, as well as a full-service outdoor bar in a repurposed airstream dubbed the “Tipsy Tin”.
In addition to the live summer concert series, the Glow Plaza hosts a variety of special events presented by third-party promoters, including Future Classics of Hot August nights, Street Vibrations, Blues and Jazz festival, as well as the Burning Man Decompression Festival.
