From Craft Cocktails to Cheap Cheer, Enjoy The Best of Whistler's Nightlife

Throughout the year, Whistler is a popular resort town that attracts outdoor enthusiasts from around the globe. Much like the diverse people that visit (and live there), Whistler's nightlife gives you options. 

If you fancy a glass of wine while nibbling on Spanish-inspired tapas, Bar Oso will hit the spot. This sister restaurant to Araxi (also great for cocktails) provides a more casual atmosphere. While the wine list is stocked, you can't miss their cocktails. If you're a fan of gin and tonics, they serve a generous selection of different options that use local and imported gins and tonics. 

For the young at heart (or just the young), head to Garfinkel's for a night of music, dancing, and drinks. Throughout the week, they offer different events to check out.

You don't have to be a guest at the Chateau Fairmont Whistler to enjoy The Mallard Lounge. This cozy lounge provides a comfortable space to kick back, relax and enjoy a few cocktails while listening to live music.

Depending on what your idea of a good night out is, these spots will get you started on the right foot.
