Cozy up by the fire on a cold day with a glass of wine or dance on tables and share pitchers with new friends. We’ve compiled a guide to the best local bars in Whistler for you right here.

Crystal Lounge

If you like live music and après snacks, then the Crystal Lounge should make the top of your list. If you stay at the Crystal Lodge, your Crystal Advantage Card gets you a discount on wings for 50 cents anytime. If you want to let out your inner rock star, every Tuesday is Karaoke night, and many weekends have live music performances.

Cinnamon Bear Bar & Grill

Cinnamon Bear Bar & Grill has a long history as one of the locals’ favourite bars since 1982. With giant sports TV, a pool table and interactive games, the Cinnamon Bear Bar is ideal for unwinding over a smooth cocktail or chilled beer. Locals rave about the Maple Chili Wings, which are crispy, spicy and a little sweet.

Beacon Pub and Eatery

If you want to really experience Whistler’s atmosphere, you should go to the Beacon Pub and Eatery, located in the centre of Whistler Village. Grab a local beer from Coast Mountain Brewing, eat Canadian favourites, like Poutine and wings, and breathe the fresh air of Whistler while watching the people on the Whistler Village Stroll. If you are a guest at the Crystal Lodge, receive a 15% discount on food.
