Entertainment at The Admiral at the Lake

We really don’t have to go far to enjoy high-quality entertainment at The Admiral at the Lake. Stage performances, live music, dance, lectures, and more are presented in the building that houses numerous paintings, sculptures and other artwork from resident artists.

For example, on June 6 at 8:30 a.m., the 2017 State of Edgewater examines how the area has changed and envisions its future direction and will be hosted by The Admiral at the Lake.

We’re also excited for our next event on June 7th at The Admiral at the Lake for those who are interested in learning more about our community.  We’ll be hosting Admiral residents, Alderman Harry Osterman, Kate Piatt-Eckert (Executive Director of Steep Theatre Company), and Rich Hagerty (Owner of Pearl’s Southern Comfort Restaurant) on a panel to discuss the tremendous attractions of the Edgewater/Andersonville neighborhood.
