This basement honky-tonk has quickly turned into a mecca for roots, bluegrass, and country rock in Toronto. High-profile singer/songwriters like Ron Sexsmith (a local resident), Serena Ryder, and John Doe (of X) have graced the small stage under the disco ball. Excellent Mexican and Southern-accented food is on offer, and the bar stools fashioned from wine barrels are a fun touch that pay... more

Dark interiors, country style décor, low lighting, a huge crowd and live music greet you as you enter the portals of The Dakota Tavern.
