Greasy Good Times!: This place has AMAZING concert (You can often see really great up and coming bands and it's not too expensive). The place itself is a little dark and grubby but it adds to the atmosphere. Good size for shows!

The Stones had a secret gig here in 1997, and the likes of Los Lobos, Wilco, and local heroes Blue Rodeo...

The Legendary Horseshoe Tavern. Legendary isn't an adjective that one just throws around every day, and yet there it sits comfortably in front of one of Toronto's oldest and most beloved bars and live music venues. If you've been to The 'Shoe...actually, let me start that sentence again. If you haven't been to The 'Shoe, what are you waiting for?The bar is steeped in history. Besides the...
