ENTERTAINMENT & SPECIAL EVENTS

If you’re looking for some music to spice up your time in Westport, The Cove is the place for you to set yourself down. We bring in the best we can find and keep a healthy mix on rotation. From Blues to Jazz, Rock to Folk, Country to Bluegrass, Soul to Funk, we love it all. In the warmer months, larger performances and full band shows take place on our Lounge stage while solos, duos and small groups play to the patio crowds. When it gets cooler, all shows happen in the Lounge.

Always best to call ahead for reservations so you have a seat too! 1.888.COVE.INN

POLICY FOR 2019/20

FOR CANCELLATIONS, REDUCTIONS OR NO SHOWS TO RESERVATIONS FOR

BLUES ON THE RIDEAU SHOWS

 

PLEASE NOTE! AND REMIND CUSTOMERS WHEN THEY RESERVE

 

You will be required to give your credit card number plus phone number and/or email address when you make your reservations.

 

Your card will not be charged at the time of reservation. You pay the night of the show.

 

You have until one week (7 DAYS) prior to the show to cancel or change the number of spots you have reserved for and/or your rooms – at no charge.

 

The Cove will also continue its policy of calling or emailing everyone who has reserved in advance one week prior to the upcoming show as a reminder.

 

If you do not notify The Cove that have to CANCEL or REDUCE the number of reserved spaces on your reservation AT LEAST ONE WEEK PRIOR TO THE SHOW – or if you are a NO SHOW the night of the Show – then YOUR CREDIT CARD WILL BE CHARGED THE FULL AMOUNT for the number of spots you have reserved.

 

However – understanding that sometimes unforeseen things come up at the last minute which can cause a cancellation – and in the spirit of good will – if this happens we will CREDIT you the full amount that your card has been charged FOR A FUTURE SHOW in 2019/20 (on a space available basis – Advance Reservation still required). We will  do this on a ONE TIME BASIS ONLY..After that, if it happens again, your card will be charged and there will be no credit for a future show.

 

We are introducing this Policy due to the large number of last minute cancellations and No-Shows we have experienced on BOTR nights over the years. It is simply not fair to the people who would like to attend the Show but have been turned down because we have a full house reserved only to find on the night of the show that there are extra spaces because of late cancellations and No-Shows. And the loss of revenue from this is not fair to Choose The Blues Productions or The Cove Inn who have to cover all the fixed expenses regardless.

 

Bottom line: If you aren’t SURE you can make the show – or if you aren’t sure some of your party can make the show – then CALL AND CANCEL AT THE LATEST ONE WEEK PRIOR TO THE SHOW  – or your credit card will be charged.

Fair? More than fair we think. Thank you for your understanding.
