Collingwood and the Town of Blue Mountains
Collingwood and the Town of Blue Mountains is a short drive from Wasaga Beach and many locals will head there for shopping or for variety in nightlife options. There is a brand new Theatre being built there at the time of this writing and although it's opening date has not been announced, it looks like it may open by the summer of 2007. Currently there is a movie theatre on 1st Street, Collingwood Cinema 4, and with the addition of a Galaxie Multi Theatre, our options are looking much better. More info about things to do in Collingwood can be found below in our section covering "Outside the Area". In this section, we are talking only about Collingwood and Town of Blue Mountains nightlife.
Best Bets for Nightlife in Collingwood:
Molly Bloom's Irish Pub
29 Simcoe St. Phone: 705-445-0442
Molly's offers Karaoke on Saturday nights and a full entertainment schedule during the week. Options change often, so your best bet it to call ahead and ask. Molly's offers everything from D.J. and Karaoke to jam nights and live bands. It's an intimate setting which is a favourite of locals.
Station on the Green Bar & Grill
278 Harbour Street West, Collingwood. Phone: 705-445-6600
In 2006, Station on the Green had a live jazz and pop duo on the patio beginning in the Spring. We are looking for updated info on the 2007 schedule. This place has the most spectacular view. It looks out onto Cranberry Golf Course with a wide view of the mountains. This little gem is tucked away off the main road (Hwy 26) at Cranberry Resort. Good food too!
Located at 2 School House Lane, Collingwood. Phone: 705-445-1833
No info about live entertainment at this time.
Admiral's Post is one of my favourite restaurants. They offer imported draft and fairly decent pub foods. Try the fish and chips. If you like fresh cut fries, ask before ordering as sometimes they substitute frozen or spicy coated when they are busy.
At the Mountain:
170 Jozo Weider Blvd, Town of the Blue Mountains. Phone: 705-446 9989
Live music is generally Irish traditional or Irish pop bands covers. This format can wear a little thin, but worth a look if you've not been there yet. Single performer plays downstairs. Schedule constantly changes so calling ahead would be advisable.
Jozo Weider Blvd, Town of the Blue Mountains. Phone: 705-444-8877
A variety of entertainment options including D.J., Trivia challenges and Theme nights. Live music appears to be rare. The Skool is popular with the younger crowd.
