Shawn Creamer and Shannon Kohlmeier, owners of Toronto’s The Dakota Tavern and The Whippoorwill Restaurant & Tavern had been contemplating the move to the County for some time.

“When our friend Trisha Cook (co-owner and manager of The Hayloft Dancehall, former manager at The Dakota) first sent us information about The Hayloft, it was a thrilling idea. As a touring musician I’ve played in a lot of roadhouses and hotel bars, and there is something incredibly authentic and cool about this place. It is a bar in a barn on a beautiful stretch of Lake Ontario’s shoreline — I think I may have willed it into existence. We fell so much in love with the spot that my wife and I bought a home here as well,” said Shawn.

The Hayloft Dancehall has been a rite of passage for PEC residents for over 47 years. Everyone has a story. The new owners took over the venue in late 2014 with a commitment to offer guests the best live music in the County. For more information on upcoming shows and special rentals, please visit
