If you want to feel like a celebrity for a day, the best place to get that VIP feeling is Sand Bar. As far as things to do in Put-in-Bay go, this is one of the most exclusive. There’s no better place to see and be seen. Get a cabana and relax with some bottle service, everyone will be wishing they were you. The cabanas won’t take you too far away from the party though, as they open up on three sides so you can mingle as you please. Relax poolside after a long day on Lake Erie and experience the party scene on the island! You will love the tiki vibe of this pool bar! If you want a break from the pool, you and your party can hang out at the large outdoor seating patio and people watch!
Living the high life at Sand Bar can make you quite hungry. Good news on that front too, because you can enjoy their full-service kitchen. Everyone loves their paninis, and the pizza is also very popular. Their cafe offers delicious appetizers and entrees to pool guests!
At the center of the complex is the main pool, a sprawling 9000 square-foot love letter to summertime. In the center of the pool is a volleyball net, to knock the ball around with new friends. You can wade up to the swim-up bar, fully stocked with your favorite refreshing drink so you don’t need to bother with getting out of the pool. But if you want to get out, head to the Tiki bar and grab one of Sand Bar’s signature cocktails! They specialize in summer cocktail like margaritas and so much more.
