BACK WHERE IT BELONGS – THE EL MOCAMBO TAVERN SIGN RETURNS TO SPADINA AVENUE

Absent for two years from the north end of Spadina Avenue at College Street, the El Mocambo neon sign is back. The original, damaged beyond repair, has been replaced by a new identical version in both shape and size.

PRIDE SIGNS in Cambridge, Ontario made the replica, which will light up on Thursday night, November 15th.

The building itself will reopen sometime in the future. But El Mocambo Records & Merchandise will continue at 464 Spadina.
