GCSU Backlot

Welcome to the official GCSU Backlot website. The GCSU Backlot is owned and operated by Grenfell Campus Student Union (GCSU). We provide a comfortable, cozy atmosphere and great prices to not only students, but the general public as well. The GCSU Backlot hosts weekly events such as Tuesday Trivia, Thursday Open Mic Night, and Friday Improv!  Check us out on Fridays and Saturdays when we play host to some of the best student events or local bands and live entertainment from across Atlantic Canada.

Come check out The GCSU Backlot. There’s something for everyone!
