Boots ‘n’ Bourbon & Rock ‘n’ Horse: Toronto Saloons for the Stetson Set

Rock 'n' Horse Saloon

Rock ‘n’ Horse Saloon

Strap on your spurs! Two new western-style saloons have sprung up in the city. Boots ‘n’ Bourbon, co-owned by the creative and culinary minds behind Rock Lobster, tips its ten-gallon hat to old-fashioned country charm with free line dancing lessons, a horseshoe-shaped bar pouring 20-plus bourbons, and novelty drinks like the 32-ounce Stampeder served in a giant glass boot. Also trotting into town is Rock ‘n’ Horse Saloon, well stocked with authentic touches like saddle-topped stools and a wagon-wheel chandelier. Feeling tough? Toss back a Bulldog—a giant margarita topped with an upturned bottle of Corona—before taking a spin on the mechanical bull. For tamer entertainment, kick back with a bourbon or beer at the pool table.  —Sara Burnside Menuck
