NileGuide Expert tip:
The Horsehoe's line-up is easily sourced online or in any of the alternative entertainment weeklies.
The Horseshoe Tavern is one of Toronto's live music institutions. A long, narrow bar that can hold crowds of just over 200, the Horseshoe has given many Canadian rock and punk icons important, career-making first gigs. It is a venue that continues to support emerging talent - securing a place on the line-up here remains a coup for young bands.
The beer is plentiful, the scene is hip, and the roster of shows is constantly full. Spend a night in Queen West and understand Toronto's hipster, music scene (a lot) better.
