You may think of it as that colourful Queen West building with the eye-popping murals, but inside those walls lives a long, equally vibrant history. The Cameron House began its first incarnation as a flophouse, where it served up Prohibition-era beverages to a ragged collection of neighbourhood eccentrics. Fast forward to 1981, when new owners transformed the space into a full-fledged arts community. It’s now home base of Video Cabaret, a theatre ensemble that stages an inventive series of live shows using video cameras and hot-wired TVs. While you’re there, ask your barkeep about the giant ants. (Don’t worry — it’s not what you think).
