PUBS & PATIOS

Where: The Brew House

Brewhouse tunes are always hopping from morning to night. A pool table and fireside comfy chairs, alongside full restaurant set up, make for a great meeting spot.

Where: Hoz’s Pub

Down to earth pub but still in that Whistler style. Just a hop, skip and a jump from that brisk walk on the Valley Trail in Whistler Creekside.

Where: Citta

Citta’s central stage in Village Square attracts locals, patio-side, and visitors too. Best people watching spot to enjoy a variety of pints on tap. Open for lunch.

Where: Amsterdam Pub & Café

Wooden interiors and all kinds of eye-candy décor make for a funky apres-pint or meal, at the Village Square. Patio too, with live music some nights. For an international, younger crowd visit the ’Dam.

Where: Black’s Pub

The warming floor for locals apres-ski. Located at the foot of both village gondolas. With snowcapped peaks and the downhill bike course in summer, enjoy their telescope to bear watch or star gaze. Tasty food, 99 brands of beer in a gilded silver menu, and 40 scotches to keep you reminiscing.

Where: Tapley’s Neighbourhood Pub

Casual atmosphere for warm conversation and cold beer. Bar staff operate a not-too-loud sound system of rock and roll numbers and the outdoor patio gives patrons the best air in the world.
