Ok, let’s talk music. We all have our favourite songs, our go-to playlists, and the artists we can’t live without. But what’s good music if you can’t truly experience live it every once in a while?

So let’s talk live music. Let’s talk about the places where music lives in the walls… where the beat goes on. Maybe it’s an unlikely spot in an unlikely location, maybe the music sounds a little bit better there, or maybe you just like their burritos.

Whether you’re a local or are just passing through, here are a few places to enjoy live music in Toronto and Vancouver.


Lee’s Palace – mural out front, burritos in the back

The Garrison – indie sound, with a side of tacos
