Where: Hozs 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.
Cittas 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: Blacks 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.
