Where to go on a Saturday night in Bancroft?

Recommended Posts

Rented a cottage in July in Bancroft, are there any bars/places to go open at night?

 

We used to rent a cottage in haliburton and would visit the Northwood but this cottage is well out of range.

Not sure about in Bancroft itself. Although about 20 minutes to the East there is the Mayo Community Center. They've always got something going on there. Just be prepared to fight if you do go, they get a little hyper at times. :whistling:

i agree with the above comment about the scraps, theres not much more to do up there than have a couple pints and fight your cousin. lol . if that doesnt work you could always try the legion that is an experience in its self

Like Elton says -

"Saturday night's all right for fightin',

My 1st thought was, if your renting a cottage in a beautiful area like Bancroft, why on earth would you want to go into town and sit in a bar at night ?? :lol: Go fish'n in the dark or build a bonfire on the beach or sit on the dock and look at the stars.

 

Winter when it's snowin & blowin is the time for sittin in bars :lol:

You guys are both right BUT since most of my friends are city slickers and love going to bar/clubs, they think that possibly on saturday night of the trip some of them ( not me , ill be drinking by the fire ) would go to a local watering hole looking for ladies ( hopefully without a beard )

Good luck going to a small town bar and trying to pick up women. Wear something you don't mind getting blood on.

 

 

On a side note wasn't there a rubys somewhere around bancroft? I've been there a time or 2 but my internal compass was ajar at the time.

There's a bar right at the begining of the down town strip in Bancroft if your heading north on the 28. I strolled in once after missing the beer store and it's pretty lame.

Classic!

We have had a couple tilts in haliburton over the years, the local ladies cant get enough of fresh meat and the hillbillies straight up hate everyone that they haven't seen before. Should be fun!

OK,

 

I'll give you the snowmobile run....

 

Start off in Wilberforce Legion, once your voice gets a little loud, hop on to the sled, ATV, Truck with a DD and work East into the village of Cardiff. You have to make a point of stopping in here as the bar tender is non other than Curtis Joesph's Mom. A terrific gal and knows how to make a cola look like a rye and coke. (That was the only drink I would drink on these treks). They have Keriokee music every Saturday night, well worth to hear the locals sing some of the most popular songs in the North. (16 tons, a bottle of whiskey and my sister, Delta Dawn, plus a few of my favorites from the Kentucky Head Hunters). Spend an hour here and then work your way over to the Ruby's in Bancroft, (a little usefull tip: Make sure you have someone in your group with their back to the fire exit door which leads into the parking lot, be sure this person also has the keys in hand to start the said vehicle). After a quick stop in Emerg, you should have enough time to get to the best town to drink in...Tweed. The Tweed Smear best place around to find some loose womin and some strong drinks. Or at least that is where the rest of the boys finally stopped at. They have bands, DJ and a decent dance floor.... Hiccup.....

 

Me?..... I'll just stick around camp, have a Seizure (triple Polar Ice, bit of Clamato juice and the rest of the fixzens).
