Looking for a new watering hole? No matter where you are in the city, you’ll find a great bar or pub to whet your whistle at. In Centretown, bars tend to be concentrated along Bank, Sparks and especially Elgin Street, which can get a bit rowdy late-night on the weekends. There are many bars and pubs in the Market area and along Rideau Street as well, and the Glebe and Westboro/Hintonburg regions all have a wide selection of spots to choose from.
In the ‘burbs, bars are less concentrated in specific locations, but there are many good ones to be found. There are also several Irish/Celtic-style pubs throughout the city—The Royal Oak is a popular chain with many locations around the city, and there are several other independent pubs as well, if you prefer a more relaxed atmosphere and a good fish and chips or burger with your beverage.
