Top bar recommendations from locals

Bar
“Great 20-something bar with a bowling alley in the basement. If you want 30-something instead, go next door to Craft, which is also good. ”

Mexican Restaurant
$$
“Sexy Tequila Bar, with table-side guacamole and salsa (get these - you won't regret it). High-end tequila's that will make you forget how much you paid for them. Great music, and only a 10 minute walk for the suite. Sunday happy hours are half price drinks and tacos. They have a spicy white-mayo that they will bring you if you order tacos, which i highly recommend. ”

American Restaurant
$$
“Fun pub in an historic building in the heart of downtown, right by the C-train station. In the summer it's amazing to spend the evening in their interior patio, removed from the street noise, but still enjoying the skyscrapers all around. Great food and drinks. Highly recommended menu item: deep fried pickles! In the basement they have concerts almost every night - check the website!”
