The Dakota Tavern is a much-loved, intimate music venue which has been in existence for more than 16 years and has seen many of Canada’s best-known artists grace its tiny stage.
Past performers include members of Barenaked Ladies, The Skydiggers, Broken Social Scene, Skye Wallace, Blue Rodeo, The Sadies, Serena Ryder, The Avett Brothers, Lowest of the Low, Sate, Matt Mays, Gord Downie, Joseph Arthur, Danny Michel, Damhnait Doyle, Steve Poltz and many more.
The Dakota Tavern is a favourite of music lovers and musicians alike, and now with veteran music booker Yvonne Matsell (El Mocambo, Ultrasound, The Horseshoe Tavern, Ted’s Wrecking Yard) at the helm, who is known for the discovery of new talent – it should be a stop on everyone’s music map!
