Originally constructed for the GM United Auto Workers Union Local 222. The Sacco Group purchased the building in 1996. The building was home to multiple tenants over the years including The Dungeon and Lazer Quest. Renamed "BOND|ST EVENT CENTRE" in 2020, The Sacco Group restored and enhanced the building while keeping its historical integrity and structure. The ambition was to contribute to the revitalization and keeping the rich tapestry of the arts, culture, and entertainment in Downtown Oshawa. A taste of the "big city” at home, BOND|ST Event Centre is an entertainment mecca, with two homes for live music - the Mainstage - and the Dungeon’s successor, TwoTwoTwo. These spaces are further complimented by the Local Lounge, the BOND|ST Cafe, and the BOND|ST Snack Bar.
Due to an exciting new elevator, BOND|ST Event Centre will be fully accessible in Spring 2024.
Currently, patrons will need to be able to climb a total of 4 steps from the sidewalk to the inside of the building, and an additional 4 to access the MainStage, Cafe, and VIP Lounge. The main floor features an accessible, barrier-free restroom.
BOND|ST Event Centre is situated on the traditional lands of the First People of the Mississauga of Scugog Island First Nation. The lands are covered under the Williams Treaties and rest within the traditional territory of the Anishinaabag. We offer our gratitude to the Indigenous People who care for and, through the treaty process, share the lands on which we live. learn, teach, and prosper today.
