Chumps (aka Champs): Chumps (aka Champs)
Large sports bar with many tvs and a big dance floor. Kind of an odd combination. Restaurant there as well.
Dress Code: You will see anything from sweat pants to bar wear. I would go somewhere in the middle.......
Diva's: Gay club
Diva's is Saskatoon's gay night club and dance bar. The crowd is mixed but tends to be more men than women. Weeknights are usually quiet, so don't expect much. Friday and Saturdays get busy around 11 pm. The bar and dance floor are located on the ground floor. There is a second floor with washrooms, a balcony overlooking the dance floor, and a separate lounge area to retreat from the noise.
Dress Code: Casual to "club wear". This is definitely the place to show off your assets.

Amigo's: What to do in Saskatoon
Amigo's is a restaurant by day and a bar by night. Great interior...skylights, plants hanging from the ceiling, artwork on the walls, it actually looks like a cafe. Sometimes they have live music too. Pool tables and darts... Great nachos...
Dress Code: No dress code, whatever.

If you're looking for an upscale spot, one of the nicer clubs in the city is the Odeon on 2nd Ave. I advise against the Sutherland Hotel (or the Scuz) and the Pat... they're somewhat popular with students because they generally have some sort of contract, but they have nothing special or unique about them. A much better alternative is The Hose & Hydrant, a converted firehall, which is not at all upscale, but is better than either The Pat or The Scuz.
If you're looking for a pub/lounge, Saskatoon has gained international recognition for it's brewing. Place like The Black Duck (also on 2nd) and Winston's are both fairly nice places.
The Broadway Avenue scene has...
The Broadway Avenue scene has many excellent nightclubs and bars, including the Wash and Slosh, The Hose and Hydrant, Lydias, and my favourite, Amigos.
This is a Mexican theamed resaurant during the day (some of the best Mexican food ever made!), and a nightclub at night. It features many bands on a weekly basis, both local and touring Canadian bands. One of the best places in Saskatoon to catch a performance.
Dress Code: No shoes, no shirt, no service!
This Campus Pub is always hopping on Friday nights. Often has live music and therefore a minimal cover charge. Dance floor and ample seating. Outdoor deck for the summer. Cheap booze and lots of campusites.
Dress Code: Anything goes - you know, student-wear.
Odeon Nightclub: Odeon Nightclub
Saskatoon's newest and BY FAR the nicest dance bar. An old renovated movie theatre is now the hippest place to hang and shake your bootie in Saskatoon. They make a mean Cosmopolitan as well! Apparently you can go there for a meal too. They play dance and techno music and also host live entertainment.
Dress Code: Well I hesitate to say there is a dress code ANYWHERE in Saskatoon, but if I were you, I would dress up a bit to go this club.
Bud's On Broadway: Bud's On Broadway
Blues bar with great entertainment and a variety of patrons, ranging from bikers to business people. Loud music and little room to maneouver make this bar a local favourite. I have definitely had some memorable nights at this place, especially when Big Dave McLean or Men without Shame are playing.
Dress Code: You'd probably be most comfortable in jeans and a t-shirt. Hint: don't wear anything that says 'bikers suck'.....lol
The Pat (otherwise known as...
The Pat (otherwise known as the Patricia Hotel, the Pat Party Pavillion or the RAT)
Absolutely nothing unique about this place. Just average priced beer and other alcohol. There is a dance floor and music ranging from old rock to country to dance (always an interesting mix?!). This place was extrememly popular back in my University days, Thursday nights and Saturday nights being the days you might end up being in a line up...unless you know the manager :)
Dress Code: Absolutely anything. No really, I mean it!!! You see 19 year old girls in their bar wear and 30 something guys in baseball uniforms that have just come from their rec games. What is the appeal here? I don't know, guess it's just the place to go!

Champs - a sports bar with a rockin' dance floor on 8th St. E.
Kooler - newest addition, big dance floor with air conditioning!!
Brass Rail - two dance floors on two levels and good dance music.
These are the best.
Dress Code: No ripped jeans or grunge looks.
Particularly in this place I like the appetizers. The hamburger bites on this picture were good, but also the spring roles are delicious.
Dress Code: Smart-Casual
