3. St. Tropez Bistro

Since its establishment in 1979, St.  Tropez Bistro  has been an integral part of Downtown Saskatoon's vibrant dining scene.  Originally situated on 3rd Avenue South, the restaurant found a new home in 1998, relocating to the historic Hanson Building on 2nd Avenue South, which had previously housed the first Saskatoon branch of The Bank Of Nova Scotia.  This century-old building exudes character and charm, providing the perfect ambiance for The Bistro to flourish.

In 2015, the bistro's story expanded beyond the city limits, with the acquisition of a beautiful piece of land southwest of Saskatoon, along the serene South Saskatchewan River.  Here, Cher & Jay, the owners of St.  Tropez Bistro, spend their days off, immersing themselves in gardening, foraging, and basking in the beauty of prairie sunsets.  The connection to nature and the surrounding landscapes has always been a deep source of inspiration for the ethos of the bistro.

In 2019, their love for crafting inventive cocktails and exploring unique whiskies gave birth to Parlor, a new venture that perfectly complemented the essence of the bistro.  Like St.  Tropez Bistro, Parlor also draws inspiration from life on the prairies and utilizes ingredients sourced from their very own gardens.
