Horseshoe Tavern

Top choice live music

in Kensington Market & Chinatown

Well past its 70th birthday, the legendary Horseshoe still plays a crucial role in the development of local indie rock. This place oozes a history of good times and classic performances. Come for a beer and check it out.

In terms of not-so-local acts, it was here that The Police played on their first North American tour – Sting did an encore in his underwear – and Bran Van 3000 made their long-awaited comeback.
