Horseshoe Tavern

In November 1947, local entrepreneur Jack Starr purchased a small piece of property at 368-370 Queen Street West. With the objective of opening up a restaurant-tavern, specializing in prime rib roast beef, with slaw, & maybe some live music on the side, he named it The Horseshoe Tavern.

The club officially opened on December 9th, 1947.

The property itself dates back to 1861, when it opened as a blacksmith shop. In the intervening years it had been home to an actual shoe shop, and then a fancy goods store. Under new provincial liquor license laws (circa 1947), which permitted him to convert the commercial property to an eatery-tavern, Starr started serving alcohol. The Shoe’s first license had a legal capacity of 87 seats.
