Many country stars began their careers at the club and it has showcased many big names from the national and international scene.
The former Managing partner was born and grew up in Winnipeg but didn’t morph into the doctor of dentist his mother hoped for. He had a sharp business and marketing brain and sought his fortune in Calgary, where he ran restaurants and clubs for a decade before returning to Winnipeg in the mid-eighties.
In 1988 he opened the Palomino Club in the building once occupied by Pierre’s. He wanted a club with a country atmosphere and country music.
He was always a believer in giving good service, reasonable prices and live entertainment. Today, about 15% of entertainment is still country but the club also offers an eclectic mix of music, including classic rock.
The Palomino became a popular watering hole, well known beyond our borders. It became a meeting place for many personalities from the arts and sports world.
The Palomino moved from its Portage location in April 2016 to its new home located at 436 Main St. where the former Manager Christian Stringer took over as Owner/Manager.
