Yonge Street in the 1970'S


  1. Hello - does anyone remember a popular bar from the early 1970s called "The Domed Stadium" - I believe at the corner of King St. & Jarvis St. - would love to see an old picture or hear any information about when the bar closed, etc. - was there in spring of 1973.

    1. was owned by bobby taylor it used to be the riviera went many times favorite barmaid was sophie

  2. I know "Anonymous" this was an older comment but I happened to be looking for a picture of "The Domed Stadium" too and came across your question. That bar was a happening place in the early 70's until at least 79= it was owned by Bobby Taylor and Bill Symons of the Argos and it was the party headquarters for the team...and their out of town oppositions on a nightly basis....it was also my regular haunt for the 70's - altho much less after my son was born in 73...we used to party there until 1 - most of the patrons would be told to leave and we would continue partying all night...cripes I can remember going straight to work from there on many a morning.....the last time I was there was the summer of 78 just before I moved out west....Bobby now owns a restaurant/lounge on Queen Street W.....it was a wonderful place
