2017 Red Shoe Pub 2

The Red Shoe Pub



The lively Pub has become a kind of 'home away from home' for many locals and visitors over the years. The Rankin Sisters have created a cozy spot in the community of Mabou, on the west coast of Cape Breton, which offers a delicious menu of Nova Scotia home cooking with a side order of live traditional music, 7 days a week!

About Cape Breton

Cape Breton Island’s story is told in many ways. It’s etched in her craggy cliffs. Written in the trails that marble her face. Spoken in four languages and celebrated in her music and dance. Alive in the millennia-old history of Unama’ki—Cape Breton Island’s true name, the ancestral and unceded territory of the Mi’kmaw People.

To know our Island is to know she’s an unyielding beauty, one which breeds a fierce spirit, resolute pride, and resilient communities knit together by tradition. Pjila’si, Cíad Míle Fáilte, Bienvenue—welcome to a place loved by many and home to a lucky few.
