The dance floor is huge and the music selection is awesome, playing a large range of classic oldies and fun, upbeat new country. Check out their event page beforehand to see if they will be offering any specials this St. Patty’s Day.

5. Outlaws – Saskatoon, SK
Outlaws plays a blend of top 40, rock and of course, country music all night long. They offer awesome drink deals on feature nights and feature Saskatoon’s only mechanical bull.
