You don’t have to wait until the new year to get out and take advantage of Sudbury’s legendary nightlife. Deputy Editor Rod Charles had a chance to “enhance his weekend” when he visited Sudbury and walked in the footsteps of legendary Canadian musician Stompin’ Tom Connors. Charles wrote that visiting Sudbury on a Saturday night has to be on your list of things to do in Canada because Stompin’ Tom says so.

Charles: “Having drinks and hanging out with friends on a dance floor is one way to enjoy Sudbury nightlife. But if you’re really into music, one of the things about Sudbury you will love are the places downtown where you can hear live music.

About a seven-minute walk from SRO Nightclub is Towne House Tavern (206 Elgin Street, 705-674-6883), which has a different band performing every night. Listen to the music of a solid band until closing at 2 am while you drink have a beer ($3.75) at a table directly in front of the band, or on the patio looking out over the street.

Back at the corner of Larch and Durham, The Night Club  (52 Larch Street, 705-675-6436) is packed. It’s bigger than Towne House and is rocking. The music is loud so don’t come here if you’re hoping to enjoy a nice conversation with that special someone.”
