About the Tangier
Opened by Ed George Sr. in 1948, The Tangier has been providing the Akron community with food and entertainment for three generations. This historic complex is Akron’s leading creative event center, offering new menus with an artistic flair and a multi-faceted, off-site catering and special event service – all at a competitive price point.
The 11-room facility – approximately 60,000 square feet – plays host to a variety of popular events, from wedding receptions, corporate galas and sales meetings to a mix of entertainment at The World-Famous Cabaret, which has been a local showplace for top-name entertainers such as Tina Turner, The Temptations, Charlie Daniels, The Scintas, Frankie Valle and the Four Seasons, Michael Stanley, 38 Special, The Platters, The Righteous Brothers, Fats Domino, Jerry Lee Lewis, James Brown, and Natalie Cole. The facility is also widely known for its steaks, fresh fish and Lebanese cuisine that are offered in its Legendary Dining Room or The Backstage Bar.
