The Rock ‘n’ Horse Saloon is the hottest and new nightspot where anyone can come and have country western experience in downtown Toronto. Last December, the Tap House Toronto closed its doors and re-opened as the Rock ‘n’ Horse Saloon. This Country / Rock destination incorporates a bar, restaurant and live music venue, located in the heart of the Entertainment District above Adelaide Hall.

The Rock ‘n’ Horse Saloon welcomes you with western style interior.  It has a capacity of a group of people up to 299.  In summer, you will enjoy the large rooftop patio, which allows you experience one of the best views of Toronto’s skyline.



The Rock ‘n’ Horse Saloon features the southwestern style menu such as chili, corn dogs and barbecued entrees and more. It offers you not only restaurant and bar experience but also entertainment such as live music, line dancing and a mechanical bull, making your country style night more exciting.


The Rock ‘n’ Horse Saloon coincides with MRG Ventures’ continuing journey into the music scene in Canada. Blog TO has already voted one of the city’s Best Live Music Venues. Most recently, MRG Ventures opened Hideaway Records & Bar in London and the Rock ‘n’ Horse Saloon will be the latest addition to the group of cutting edge music venues and bars.


The Rock ‘n’ Horse Saloon will take you to country and let you experience home-style food, great music and welcoming hospitality in a comfortable and warm atmosphere.  The space is great for a themed event with a saloon feel.

CityEvents says goodbye to 2013 and welcomes 2014

New Year

Last year was another great year at CityEvents. We were fortunate to have wonderful clients and the opportunity to support worthwhile causes and business / community events. As we say goodbye to 2013, we want to express our delight in having worked through the year with terrific people and organizations.

Thank you to all who, throughout 2013, read our blog, website and newsletter and shared our stories, to all who sent us messages and were part of our communities and, of course, to all of our clients, people who’ve believed in our services and appreciated our work. Being involved in so many exciting events and engaged communities was tremendous for all of us at CityEvents.

The launch of CitySocial was a highlight of the year for us. The CitySocial team develops social media and marketing strategies to support client communication campaigns related to busineses, events and products. We did this work for years as part of our event management package, but decided in 2013 to formalize and strengthen the service, bringing on board new employees with social media expertise. Going into 2014, we look forward to continuing to help our clients and businesses build their presence in the world of social media.

Events remain the core of what we do each and every day, and we are passionate about them. Event planning is challenging; the number of details to be considered makes each experience unique and demanding. And for those very reasons, it is stimulating, never boring, never routine. The challenge ensures that we are invested in making each event a success. In 2013, we did it all – from small, private events to big award shows, and loved each one. And, along the way, we supported several charities, believing in the importance of giving back to our community.

Some of our successful events and promotions in 2013 include:

  • 40th anniversary celebration of women’s shelter Interval House
  • Showcase of President’s Choice products for Loblaw Companies
  • Moosehead tent at the Toronto’s Festival of Beer
  •  Great Valentine Gala, Rolling Rampage on the Hill, and Canadian Disability Awards for the Canadian Foundation for Physically Disabled Persons
  • Taste of the Kingsway
  • Marketing and social media for professional-services firm Hogg, Shain & Scheck
  • Vision Awards Gala for the Toronto Hispanic Chamber of Commerce

We encourage you to be part of our strong community; contact us now. And be a part of our community in all our social media.

Happy 2014! 2013 Look back with Prezi.
