The Landing Patio Bar & Grill is a perfect backdrop to host live music.  Bands from all over Iowa and across the United States have already performed at the Landing.  These artists play directly from the water, atop the Clear Lake Boats barge or directly from our newly built patio bar that sits over the lake, making for a one of a kind musical experience.  For updated schedule of events and live music performances, please visit our Facebook page.
