PTBOCanada Feature Post: We Take You Inside Riley's & The Junction In Downtown Peterborough

Riley's Pub and The Junction have been a huge part of downtown Peterborough for many years, and there is a reason why: It consistently offers bang for your buck with its great pub food, relaxed atmosphere and excellent entertainment—all under one roof.

Riley's and the Junction have all the amenities in one entertainment centre. You can have a great meal and pints at Riley's, then head next door to The Junction and kick back or shoot pool with your friends at their awesome billiards hall. And on Friday and Saturday nights, you can head upstairs to their stylish nightclub.

Sunday and Monday nights, Riley's is the place to be to watch NFL football on their flatscreen TVs while enjoying yummy half price nachos and wings. Saturday nights, NHL hockey is where it's at.

Riley's is known for its customer service, quality food, generous portion sizes, and great price points. Indeed, owner Jim Kakouros tells us customers constantly rave about their affordable prices. Riley's also has daily specials, from $4 Tall Boys and half price wings on Sundays, to their famous 39 cent wing Tuesday and much more.

In addition, the weekly music entertainment from stalwarts Josh Gontier and Travis Berlenbach is top notch.

Next door, The Junction is also known for its nightclub—the Kawartha area's premiere entertainment venue. With multiple theme nights from Country Nights, Nothing But the 90s, Y2K Flashback and everything in between with DJs Bill Porter and Justin Anderson, it has 20,000 square feet of unbridled fun and play on weekends.

The nightclub offers the sophisticated clubgoer the ultimate in entertainment experience, with its luxury and refined style.

Oh, and in the summer there is no better place to be than on their rooftop patio hideway overlooking the downtown and Otonabee River.


What Riley's and The Junction also pride themselves on is hosting the best private parties. Riley's has a perfect backroom—with its fireplace and comfy couches—that's great for casual work and family functions.

The Junction has ample space and private rooms to host larger functions, whether it be a wedding reception, birthday party, retirement party or corporate Christmas party. Jack and Jills are particularly popular there right now.

Whether it's 20 people or 650, The Junction has the space to deliver—and is constantly getting referrals due to its customer service. They have special custom menus that offer extensive culinary treats. Oh, and we should also mention booking the space is free!

There is also a stunning new lighted glass water fountain in the Junction that's perfect for taking special pictures by. At an impressive 15 feet wide and 9 feet tall, it adds further ambiance to the elegant space.

No doubt, if you want great customer service coupled with a terrific atmosphere, whatever the occasion Riley's and The Junction is the place to be.
