Bars & Cafes


One of the city's original live music venues and where Canadian singing legend Stompin' Tom got his first break, this tavern is still the place to see the bands that put the word 'road' in roadhouse. From cowboy to punk, rock 'n' roll to grunge, the musical back room has heard it all. The sound system at Horseshoe Tavern is high decibel and, Tuesday nights, local radio station-The Edge hosts a New Music series of sounds from the street.
