One of Grand Lake’s most legendary gathering spots, Monkey Island Pub has a welcoming atmosphere with an Irish flair and plenty of entertainment options, including pool, shuffleboard, a great jukebox and three flat screen TVs and a dance floor that is very popular when a live band is on the stage.
If you’re looking for good music, bright lights and late nights, Big Shots is the dance club spot to party on Monkey Island. Grand Lake’s premier night club features two levels, including two premium bars, dance cages and intimate seating. For drinks or dancing, a visit to Big Shots will be an experience like no other.
The only place on Grand Lake that’s better than the lake Cherokee Casino Grove is a beautiful, 39.000-square-foot lakeside casino. It features 400 electronic games, a full-service restaurant, complete with a bar, as well as live music and a dance floor.
This legendary bar and grill’s atmosphere and staff make it different from every other place around Grand Lake. It’s a “come in, feel like you are welcome” place. Serving lunch and dinner, the menu includes barbecue, burgers, sliders, sandwiches and more. Breakfast is served on Saturday and Sunday mornings. The Road Hog Saloon features a full bar and there’s never a cover charge for the live bands.
