BARS AND CLUBS
Grand Bend Main Street is the center of live entertainment and rocking good times. For many years Grand Bends nightlife was spoken of far and wide. People of all ages remember what a great time they had dancing all night then going for fries at 1:00 am.
Start your night at the Growling Gator down at the Beach and watch the sunset over the lake while enjoying great food, spectacular drinks and fun times on their patio bar.
Gables Tavern is packed at all times with people moving to the live entertainment. Multiple nights per week will have live entertainment. Cold beer and blended drinks add to the excitement. Get there early to miss the line that stretches down the street. This bar is popular with the crowds that come back to Grand Bend. For more quiet entertainment move into the Rod and Gun room for draft beer and munchies. Don't forget about The Colonials Rod and Gun Room which is open year round with periodic live entertainment and Karaoke. I remember the old days when Off Track Betting dominated Friday nights. Now you can watch sports and play pool. Some nights live music hits The Lake Hound when Pat and the boys entertain for various good causes. Smackwater Jacks is fighting for permission to have live entertainment in their establishment.
Take a walk out to Oakwood Resorts outdoor patio or enjoy the live entertainment in the new Pub. The patio looks out over the first hole at the top of the elevated tee. The food is great, the drinks are better and the view is even better than that. This bar fills up quickly and the patrons have a great time. Oakwood is a public course so play hard on the course and play harder in the pub.
