Went here because we read that the Police played here a long time ago. We lucked into watching a young band from Detroit who played a short set on a Tuesday night. Beautiful harmonies and a lot of energy. No cover and a space with...More

The front of the bar is nice and the beer selection is good. The main venue at the back is so functional with seating and another bar. A great view of the stage from all areas. I can't wait to come back here, great place.

The Horseshoe is a famous music bar. It works hard to preserve its "smells like an armpit" status. Great music, the beer isn't overpriced, staff understand the history they're standing in. A mandatory stop for all music fans.

Queen Street and West Queen West
Known as the Art & Design District, West Queen West is
one of the most energetic and dynamic of Toronto's
neighborhoods. Along with its great modernist museums,
clubs, and restaurants, it's home to some of the
funkiest specialty shops, ranging from clothing to
stationary to collectables, and caters to niche and
vintage shoppers of all kinds. That makes it a mecca
for creatives, including hobbyists designers, writers,
