The Palomino offers live music of all genres from all around the world on both floors of our establishment throughout the week. We’ve been consistently nominated as one of the Top 3 Live Music Venues in Calgary and one of the Top 50 Live Music Venues in Canada in CBC Radio 3's Listener's Poll.

Firmly believing in the credo "the only music is good music", on any given night you might see folk, garage, blues, rock, country, punk, metal, or live hop-hop along with 200 sweaty new friends you didn't know you had. Please check our calendar for a complete listing of what we're up to this month.

Unless otherwise noted, shows are a $10 cover with doors at 9pm and bands at 10pm.
