Rockpile Nightclub

Bar by former Big Bop owner feels like prison

Former Big Bop owner Dominic Tassielli moved house to Etobicoke following the iconic all-ages rock venue's close, and subsequently re-surfaced with a prison-themed rock venue in the area. From the plastic execution chair that welcomes you, to the giant mirror ball that illuminates the bar floor, this bar and nightclub retains little of the Big Bop's former glory, but instead feels like a mini-Bop that caters perfectly to those who frequent it.
