The Strand Piano Bar

The Strand is a unique upscale restaurant and Piano bar located in the heart of Collingwood. Housed in a converted bank building, its high ceilings, chandeliers, crisp tableclothes combined with the dulcet tones from our grand piano promise a special and elegant dining experience.

Dining Options


Our main dining room seats up to 56 people with an additional private room in "the vault" (a converted bank vault on the main floor) which seats up to 12.

The cuisine is distinctly French Fine Dining quality, created by our brilliant and talented young head chef Taylor Dow.  See our "Dining Side" tab for our dining room menu.


5pm to 10pm Tuesday to Thursady
4pm to 11pm Friday & Saturday
Closed Sunday & Monday

We do not provide specific birthday cakes and the like, but you are welcome to bring in your own if you wish. We charge a plating fee of $4 per person.


Our stunning bar with generous seating accommodates up to 18 people, with additional bar side seating for up to a further 16 guests.

At the bar you can enjoy a separate, more casual menu (not available in the dining area). See our "Bar Side" tab for the menu.

The bar side is a casual place to enjoy a cocktail, a glass of wine or beer and soak up the atmosphere of The Strand. 



We have an extensive wine list at The Strand with over 1,000 bottles in inventory, mostly stored in the original bank vault deep in the basement. This room provides a naturally perfect environment for storing wine. Our knowledgeable staff will help you with wine sections from our comprehensive selection of wines by-the-glass, up to our Strand Cellar of fine wines from all around the world.

We only sell our own wines, we do not provide a corkage service.


We have a private car park at the rear of the building with 9 dedicated spaces, including a handicapped car parking space, this leads to a wheelchair ramp into the restaurant via an assisted access door. On the main floor, we have a fully equipped unisex handicapped washroom. The main customer washrooms are in the basement.

Customer Endorsement

We would like to thank Shelley and the entire staff at the Strand for making our wedding dinner extremely enjoyable and memorable. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Shelley made us laugh the entire night! She was very knowledgeable with the different types of wine available. 

The restaurant is beautiful and the atmosphere was great. It was a very relaxing evening. The food was incredible and the presentation was 5 star! Virginia and I will be coming back on a regular basis to explore the rest of the menu and to enjoy the friendly atmosphere.

Thank you again for making our night special!

 Cody & Virginia Ness

Message From The Owners

On the corner of Hurontario and Simcoe, The Strand is located on the original sight of the Grand Hotel (1869). Following a devastating fire, the (bank) building that is now our home, was built in 1922. The conversion to a restaurant started in the fall of 2015 and took 6 months of hard work to complete, but we hope you agree, it was worth the effort! We now have The Strand, a bold and unique investment at the heart of this vibrant and growing community that is Collingwood.

The Strand Collingwood was inspired by the iconic deco hotel, the Savoy, located on the street, "The Strand" beside the river Thames in the heart of London, England. The Savoy is not only home to one of the finest restaurants in London, the Savoy Grill, but is also the home for the American Bar, perhaps the most famous piano bar in the world. We wanted to bring just a little piece of that elegance and style to Collingwood and create a place that we would ourselves choose to go. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

- Michel & Kathy
