Round House Bar on Delaware Street in the village of Put-in-Bay celebrates the 25th Anniversary of Whiskey Light on Sunday, 23 April 2023. The Round House Bar opened for business as the Columbia Restaurant in June of 1873 according to an article found in the Sandusky Register.

The Columbia Restaurant served refreshments including beer, wine and food. However, the real treat back in those days was ice cream and cottage cheese. There was no electricity, so the ice had to be cut during the winter months and stored in the Ice House (which is now located on the Put-in-Bay Winery Estate) allowing for this summer time favorite. Banners for ice cream stretched from The Round House across the street to De Rivera Park.

The Round House Bar has always been known for its neon “WHISKEY” light above the front door, live entertainment and buckets of beer. This holds true to this day!
