A Legendary Toronto Bar Is Closing Its Doors For Good

By now we’re all very aware of the struggles that businesses everywhere are having due to COVID-19. While we’re all hunkered down at home and following the rules, it means that the owners of businesses like restaurants, bars, gyms, and hair salons still have to pay rents while making zero income whatsoever. Regardless of your stance on if this should be happening — that’s its own can of worms — one iconic Toronto bar is closing its doors forever.

Crocodile Rock, located at Adelaide & Duncan, has just announced that it’s shutting down permanently after almost 30 years in business.

Crocodile Rock was known not only for its cheap drink specials but also for the insanely long line ups along Adelaide. The Toronto bar will certainly always be a Toronto landmark in the heart of the Entertainment District.

While the bar’s statement gave no reason for the permanent closure, there’s reason to suspect that it had a lot to do with the current COVID-19 pandemic.

Many Toronto restaurants have been able to seamlessly shift to offering takeout and delivery but there obviously isn’t a way for bars or nightclubs to do that.
