Dust off your cowboy boots, Toronto just got a new upscale country bar

The team behind notable destinations like Pizza Wine Disco, Cibo Wine Bar and even Don Alfonso is back again, this time bringing yet another unique nightlife spot to the city.

Paris Texas, takes over the former Arcane building on King West, serving up an elevated, upscale way to watch sports while promoting conversation and connection. It’s branded as “Toronto’s premiere sports and country bar.”


The new spot is a collaboration between Municipal Goods and Liberty Group and opened to the public earlier this month. It has already drawn tons of attention. That’s no surprise, though, considering the duo behind Pizza Wine Disco — Adam Szabo and Luca Di Donato — know how to bring a crowd to a new spot.

Paris Texas is an upscale sports and country establishment located in the heart of King Street West. The menu and aesthetic pay homage to a decadent era of western saloons while simultaneously offering a Parisian flare of sophistication,” Di Donato says. “Upon entry, the exposed brick and luxurious finishings invite you to a unique social experience, encouraging conversation and camaraderie. The booths along the exterior walls command intimacy between the guests, while the large bars flanking the space simulate a high-energy atmosphere.” 


The menu includes options like a $19 build-your-own martini alongside a selection of beer and cocktails, like a Remy XO espresso martini and  Cactus Jack made with Julio Blanco Tequila, Grand Mariner, prickly pear, agave and a hibiscus lime rimmer.

A selection of upscale food options blended with comfort food is also available. Choose from dishes like the confit duck lettuce wraps, saku tuna tacos, buffalo cauliflower bites or chips and dip.

Main course options include salads, fajitas, chicken and waffles as well as a ribeye steak. There are also burgers and sandwiches available that appease to both meat-lovers and vegetarians alike.

Paris Texas is located at 461 King Street West and is open from 5 p.m. to late on Tuesdays through Sundays.
