Horseshoe Tavern

Iconic live music venue in Toronto known for hosting legendary performances and nurturing local Canadian talent since 1947.

The Legendary Horseshoe Tavern opened in 1947, and has since welcomed pretty much every major Canadian act of the last several decades (the Band, Blue Rodeo, the Tragically Hip, Our Lady Peace; the list goes on), plus numerous world-famous bands such as the Rolling Stones and the Ramones. It reeks of cheap beer and its black-and-white checkered tile floor is in need of a deep clean, but that’s the charm of this grungy rockabilly venue, where you can find cheap tickets to terrific up-and-coming bands. If you’re in need of something to warm up your night, start your night down the street at the Cameron House, which is much smaller, but offers no-cover music during the early evening.
