Cadillac Lounge Presents James Green Electric
January 18 /10:00 pm January 19 /1:00 am
From the start the Cadillac Lounge was more than just a bar. Open 7 days a week, from morning till night, the Caddy is at once a restaurant, a gathering place, a bar, a live music venue, a host to community functions, and fundraisers. Nearly every major life milestone has at one point been celebrated within these leopard print walls. Sam has, in times of great shift and evolution of consumer interest and palate stayed true to his original vision for the Cadillac Lounge. If asked what that vision is, Sam would describe it as “a place where you could imagine Johnny Cash and Dean Martin saddled up at the bar while Hank Williams echoes from the speakers. It’s a bastion of Rockabilly, Honky Tonk, Country, Americana, Motown and Funk. It’s the neighbourhood bar that’s open for lunch and you can be sure the food is made fresh, delicious and reasonably priced. Where the servers probably live around the block and have frequented the patio more than a few times before and after being employed here. It’s the kind of place you may well find toddlers dancing to a live band during brunch while their parents happily munch of Huevos Ranchero’s and a local craft brew. More than a few summer nights have seen wedding hosted on the patio, Birthdays christenings, wakes and memorials bringing family and friends together to celebrate or seek comfort. The Cadillac and ultimately Sam’s connection with the community ensures that many local fundraisers have successfully taken place at the Cadillac as well as Sam’s own annual fundraiser benefiting the Diabetes Clinic and Families at SickKids Hospital.
