Can the Frog leap to the forefront in Scarborough area? | 170722Sa | Shows for Sat. July 22, 2021

Julie McClean -GARY 17


Will someone ever have the guts to open a bar in an unsuccessful location and call it The White Elephant?  I think it would be a can’t-miss and certainly taking over a location that’s been three different things in the past three years and hoping to make a go of it without some sort of super-gimmick or at least relentless promotion is a dreamer’s mission.

I have seen such seemingly miraculous conversions done.  I remember —and documented— how Phil Policelli and Kevin Saliba sold their original very successful Heads or Tails and bought a place on Dundas St. West in Mississauga that had suffered through a similar history as that of the room at 1871 O’Connor Drive about which I shall be writing below.  Many “in the know” in the business thought they had over-reached, as the place was well known as a “white elephant” in the trade.

But Phil and Kevin knew something the know-it-alls didn’t: that an excellent venue presentation, attractions like live music, reasonable prices and aggressive promotion could combine to trump history.  They called the new room PK Creek and it opened, as it so happens, exactly 17 years ago this weekend, on July 21, 2000, as detailed in Issues #175 and #176 of my old to-nite magazine —forerunner, of course, to the present incarnation of this music digest as [Subscribers registered on the website can see hi-res jpgs of the original “Opening July 21” and “Now Open” stories and ads in a post in our Vault section.]

to-nite #175, July 11-25, 2000 -Page 15: PK Creek will open July 21

It was a nearly instant hit, offering several live music shows every week on a beautifully designed large stage, great ribs and wings on the menu, decent drink prices, a rockin’ patio, a big parking lot out back and fetching servers with good attitudes.  Phil and Kevin knew how to run a place and advertising was part of their plan, which came up roses in all respects.  It stayed that way for several years until the day they decided to sell it, after which the place began a fairly quick reversion to its former lassitude and today has sadly been converted and divided into a jumble of retail stores.

What does this have to do with shows happening tonight?  Well, the former Pizza Hut located on the hairlip of Scarborough (at 1871 O’Connor Drive just west of Victoria Park) in which Julie McClean and her Midnight Jewel Pop Rock covers band are appearing tonight, is a spacious room in an easily accessible location with lots of free parking.  And with the opening of the Frog and The Crown this evening the building has now housed four different businesses in the past three years, with two eastern cuisine restaurant operations sandwiched between the pizza chain’s occupancy and this new effort by a veteran area club owner.

to-nite #176, July 26-August 08, 2000 -Page 15: PK Creek now open

That last element may be the difference.  While I don’t know the gentleman’s name, the owner of the new room is apparently the former operator of Triple Crown Sports Bar, a room in Scarborough that at least occasionally had bands over its many years of existence prior to closing I’m not sure when.

This I learn from the bass player of tonight’s band, veteran four-stringer Brian Potts, who’s been part of the Scarborough scene since before I can remember —which is going back at least 25 years!

The owner “would like to have live bands, bless him,” and Midnight Jewel will be the first one,” Brian told me in announcing tonight’s 9-1 no cover show in the room located in a plaza which also contains a Service Ontario outlet with which local folks who renew drivers’ licenses, health cards and so on will be well familiar.

“I hope supporters of live music will come out (not just for us) and hopefully open and maintain a new venue,” Brian added.

Of course even if it’s a banner evening, one night will not a viable venue make, as we were reminded just a couple of weeks ago by the fiasco at Axis Gallery and Grill in the Junction area when the new owner there (who has had almost all of the holdover staff quit since he took over and seems to be making a “shambles” of the place according to one veteran player) cancelled a new Wednesday night “residency” after one installment despite enthusiastic audience and staff response because beer sales weren’t good, according to the player involved.  I felt I ended up with egg on my face over than one, having written an encouraging post about the possibilities of the room.

The fact is, in today’s market new clubs need to promote properly to thrive, whether that’s via social media, advertising in publications such as or even handing out or posting flyers in their local neighbourhood —or ideally all of the above and more.

In the meantime giving the new room some encouragement by turning out tonight sounds like a good idea to me —particularly since the Scarborough live music scene has become so incredibly anemic of late (despite the reported conversion of a former Shoeless Joe’s on Milner Ave. off McGowan into a new Stag’s Head room with live bands) with few clubs still offering live entertainment and hardly any doing any sort of meaningful promotion even on social media.

In any case, if you do venture to the Frog tonight you’ll at least be guaranteed of being rewarded by hearing a band that has its chops well honed with a versatile, commanding and entrancing singer bound to knock your socks off and delight your visual cortex to boot.
