Friars Music Museum in a Toronto’s Shoppers Drug Mart | 279 Yonge St.

 

Toronto’s celebrated music history is now on permanent display in the Shoppers Drug Mart south of Yonge-Dundas Square – a legendary building that housed the Hard Rock Cafe and famed nightclubs The Friars and The Nickelodeon. Spearheaded by the Downtown Yonge BIA.

Located at  279 Yonge St. — occupied by the Hard Rock Café from 1978 until 2017 — part of its second floor is now the Friar’s Music Museum, a time capsule snapshot of the famous music venue that stood there a half-century earlier.

Instruments and other musical artifacts, along with photos, videos and stories from the many music icons who performed on Yonge St. stages.
