Hg2 : The Hedonist

The Horseshoe Tavern

Surprise performances from greats like the Rolling Stones, the Blues Brothers and Melissa Ethridge have added to the ‘Shoe’s legendary status, as well as gigs by The Police, Etta James and Franz Ferdinand (by supporting new talent, it also helped to launch the careers of Canadians Bryan Adams and The Tragically Hip).

Although it gets discretely spruced up every once in a while it still has a grungy aesthetic, which is how the regulars like it. A bar out front (with a patio and pool table) is an enduring haunt, while the intimate music venue in the back is beloved for its rock ‘n’ roll, punk and country music.
