Aberdeen Hotel Chatham 1915

April 11, 2017

Venue: Aberdeen Hotel
Year: 1915
City: Chatham Ontario Canada
Closed: Circa 1996.
Address: 1 Grand Ave.

Info based on the article:
Aberdeen Hotel has a long history of serving liquid hospitality
Posted by Chatham This Week 2016/07/11. By: John Rhodes.

* Before becoming known as the Aberdeen Hotel, it had spent 40 plus years known as the McNaughton Tavern.
* It can be traced back to the late 1840s – early 1850s. Known most for selling Whiskey than renting rooms.

During the 1970’s, Country music was huge, and the Aberdeen was a popular venue featuring live music most days of the week. During the 80’s, it became a hot spot for live hard Rock & Roll. Through it’s final years (1990-1996), it had began to show its age.
As of  today (April 2017), The building still stands, being used a storage space for Western Equipment.

The picture is from a postcard produced for the hotel, which I estimate to have been created between 1910 and 1920. John Rhodes.

Aberdeen Hotel 1971 Chatham

April 11, 2017

Venue: Aberdeen Hotel
Year: 1971
City: Chatham Ontario Canada
Closed: Circa 1996.
Address: 1 Grand ave.

Notes:

1970’s – Chatham was home to a strong music scene with bands performing at least six nights a week at the Aberdeen. Musicians from all over Ontario join the strong Union in this city. Times are good. Country music rules the day & the Aberdeen is a bar highly respected in the music community. Touring acts from around the world played here when they crossed Ontario.

1980’s – Glam rock takes over. The bar grows rough edges but continues to thrive and becomes a legendary party venue on the touring scene. It can be safely said that no bar may hold more good rock & roll stories than our little watering hole here in Chatham.

1990’s – Live entertainment dwindles down to just three nights a week. By the late 1990’s, the live music bar scene fades & Al & George decide to sell the venue & move. The Aberdeen becomes a storage warehouse for a local business. It still stands today (2011) in all its run down glory. The glory days are over, but the stories will never be forgotten. It was simply Chatham’s most legendary bar.

* The Aberdeens final “weekend” of live bands included Nerve, Never, Square Root Of Margaret & The Janet Theory/Foster Child.
