Giddy up, girlfriends! This country bar gets wild on weekends, with plenty of great country music and dancing. If you don’t know how to two-step, you’ll learn quickly!

The Common

This place is basically hipster heaven. The drink menu is outstanding, the patio is small but sheltered and the vibe is too cool for school – bring your vegan cousin or favourite group of ladies here for a night out. The great thing about The Common is its versatility - you can decide if you want to be chill and sit at a table with a drink or two, or get crazy and hit the dance floor.

The dance floor is small but the music is generally pretty good and people do dance here – at least on weekends.

Redstar

This basement pub is known for great pub fare that’s a cut above usual bar food, and its loud music. It’s a fun spot to hang out with your girlfriends when you don’t feel like talking much – be prepared to shout above the crowd whenever you do want to chat. Still, when you want to just listen to music and enjoy a cocktail or two, it’s a good pub to spend a night with the ladies.
