Whether it is the sprightly Chicago-styled, hip-shaking, feet-tapping tunes delivered by the local big shot blues bands, or the eclectic crowd that seems to be permanently addicted to having a good time, there's something about the Blues On Whyte pub that will make you leave it, only wanting to return again. Don't miss the Saturday afternoon blues jam sessions at this place. In case you feel thirsty, you can sit and sip on to some perfectly chilled beers or devour other spirits offered on their menu. Besides, there are pool tables for you to enjoy a game while you catch up with your friends here.
The Black Dog is a bar that transcends most clichés. People of all ages and backgrounds come together here for music and drinks. The Wooftop Lounge & Patio enclosed garden patio is the place to be in the summertime, and with free WiFi and regular drink specials it can be a nice way to pass the day. Guest DJs spin tunes from many genres most nights, and Saturday afternoons feature a no cover acoustic jam. A lower level room called the Underdog is available for private functions.

Located along the Argyll street, Union Hall is where all the fun and excitement is. This nightclub is always in a bust of energy with patrons dancing away to the tunes of the DJ. The dance floor is very spacious but is always filled to its capacity so be sure that you are well in time before it gets crowded. Their well-assorted drinks flow freely and are reasonably priced. They also undertake bookings should you want to throw a personal party to celebrate some special times. However, ensure that you plan your party on a Thursday, Friday or a Saturday only, for they do not take bookings otherwise.
Any self-respecting audiophile in Edmonton will tell you that Shakers Roadhouse, formerly known as Big Al's House of Blues is the place to be, for terrific music and food. This atmospheric club located at the Yellowhead Inn hosts weekly jam sessions that go on till late in the night. A real crowd-puller during the weekends, Shakers Roadhouse also serves Texan chili bowls and a mean steak sandwich to peckish revelers. Some of the performances that visiting crowds have grooved to in the past include artists such as Geoffrey O'Brien, Dan and San Stephens and the Brother Ray Lemelin Blues band.
