The Castaway (or "Cast Away" as it was sometimes spelled in advertising) was a bar located just outside of Geneva on the Lake, Ohio on Route 534 (eastside) heading north. South of The Strip although not located in the village, the night club became closely associated with the party scene of The Strip during the 1960s (it was open at least as early as 1963). The owner was James Brown (Jimmy). The entrance to the Castaway was a huge Easter Island Moai with gas flames coming out of its eyes. You entered through its mouth. The bar was destroyed in an arson fire in 1979.
The bar was known for its Go-Go shower dancers and for its live musical acts.
Conway Twitty recorded a live album there called "Conway Twitty Rocks At The Castaway: Geneva-on-the-lake, Ohio; 3rd-9th August 1964".
