The Ceeps Built and opened in 1890, The Ceeps is one of Londons oldest bars. It is an iconic place not just in the Forest City, but known across Canada and further. Thousands upon thousands have attended the University of Western Ontario over the last 120 years, many off them making our tavern their second home. If you mention it in conversation, depending on who youre with, its not all that rare for your company to comment Oh The Ceeps or I lived there for a few years when I went to Western. While many little things have changed over the years, The Ceeps has maintained its true identity, a genuine university pub and a favorite for students and alumni. Due to its proximity to Western, at one time, it was the closest place to the university that students would frequent to unwind and be social. It even functioned as a hotel until the late 70s.
