Husband and wife duo, Megan Jones and Tim Pritchard are the proud owners of The Starlight on Wellington Street. Warm, cozy and authentically vintage! This new hot spot serves up “quality drinks and tasty bar snacks” well into the wee hours.
Owners of The Gaslight, a small “local” bar in the Junction Triangle in Toronto, Megan and Tim were lured by close family to Stratford in 2019 to work on their dream of running a motel in our great city. Enter the pandemic and plans were put aside while they fought tooth and nail to keep their Toronto bar afloat. With success! With the Toronto bar running swimmingly today, they have poured energy and creativity into their new venture. While not the motel of their original plans, the vibe of the bar is “retro motel lobby.” Nods to “the dream” are the “motel keys” that hang behind the bar, the worn-in piano, rustic carpets and leather booths. You won’t want to leave!
You’ll find locally brewed beer on tap, new-world and old-world wines that will be rotated, fun and easy cocktails. The snack menu is curated by Yva Santini and the team at the Flour Mill in St Mary’s. Graphic design is being done by local artist, Kellen Hatanaka. We love all things local!
Megan and Tim want their bar to be where everyone goes on their days off. So only Wednesday is closed — when they spend family time together with their two young daughters, ages 7 and 3.
Thursday to Saturday open 5pm to 1am. Sunday to Tuesday open 5pm to 11pm.
