The Facts: The El Mocambo was opened as a music venue in 1850. The building was first used as a haven for escaped slaves. The name and famous El Mocambo palm tree sign were constructed in 1946. It was one of the first establishments in Toronto to obtain a liquor licence. Musical acts appeared on separate stages located on the main and second floor of the building.
The News: Recently, the iconic El Mocambo was for sale and it seemed as though another famous landmark establishment on the Toronto scene was gong to vanish until the last minute bid by Canadian entrepreneur Michael Werkele not only rescued the El Mo but promised to restore it to the glory days of past years!
Crightonism: About the second time I saw a musical performance at the "Elmo" it was a good one- March 1977 the band was the Rolling Stones. I won two tickets on CHUM FM Radio. I did this drawing shortly thereafter and returned to the club many times bringing a print to give to the performer with their name added to the marquee.
