Blog Guelph: Albion Hotel

Albion Hotel
Originally uploaded by ericjgiberson.
The Albion Hotel is commonly known as the 'centre of the universe'. Well past 100 years young, this fine drinking establishment offers one of the earliest-to-open out door patios plus a second floor dance/live music venue that rocks socks.

In earlier times, noteworthy acts like Blue Rodeo and Ani Difranco filled the joint. Local bands routinely cut their teeth. Excellent DJ's spin funky tunes and many a fine birthday celebrations are had.

Directly across the street from the Church of Our Lady, the Alb is a destination unto its self.

Praise be.

Thanks to Flickr and Ericjgiberson for the pic.
