Billybong's Food and Drink: Billybong's Food and Drink
I kind of found this place by accident. I was always under the impression that there really wasn't much to do here in Brantford. But one night me and a friend were bored so we thought we'd head out and see if we could find anything that was even just a little interesting. We set off for one place first but it turned out to be a little lame and then we heard about Billybong's. Some people we met were headed there and they said that it was THE place to be in town. It's a sort of bar/club with an okay sized dance floor. We went on a Friday and Saturday night and both nights the place was absolutely packed. We ended up having an awesome time.
Dress Code: There's not really a dress code. Most people dress up but there were people there who were in their regular clothes.
Two Doors Down: Get a Taste of Local Music
The pubs in this strip have been around for many years. The name "Two Doors Down" actually refers to a bar that used to be 2 doors from it named Poorfolks Deli. Any lover of live music in Brantford will tell stories of wild nights spent at Poorfolks.
Since the closing of Poorfolks, a lot of the bands have moved to the less homey Two Doors Down. They feature live music 7 nights a week, and friendly staff and patrons who are sure to show you a good time.
Dress Code: If you happen to be a hippie, you'll fit right in. You'll need to wear shoes if you are not on the dancefloor.
Pourhouse Bar & Grill: Sexiest Nightclub
This is the place to be in Brantford if you're under 30 and looking for a crazy time. This is Brantford's version of a Toronto nightclub - young, trendy and a little risque. (Wet T Shirt contests and Thong Competitions are frequently offered.)
Definately not for people seeking a quiet laid back atmosphere. Due to Brantford's anti-smoking bylaw, this club does offer an enclosed smoking area. It also boasts MANY pool tables and frequently hosts live bands and radio station DJs.
Dress Code: Anything goes, although I've seen girls wear things that would make Britney Spears and Madonna blush! Think trendy, trendy, trendy.
The Ring Carribean Restaurant & Bar: Island Fever
Drive downtown Colborne Street and you won't be able to miss this place! Brightly decorated in the flag colours of Jamaica this unique place certainly livens up a drismal downtown.
Try the jerk chicken which Jamaica is famous for and relax while listening to a live band. Definately call ahead for hours and events listings as they frequently change.
Dress Code: Anything goes. Relaxed.
