Whistler’s Nightlife

Whistler’s Bars & Pubs

Après and Beyond

If you are a skier or snowboarder, you already know that a vibrant après scene makes your outdoor adventures that much better. Whistler is world-renowned for its fabulous après featuring live music, drink specials, hearty food and the camaraderie that comes with enjoying this mountain paradise with others.

The Famous Four

The Garibaldi Lift Company
Located slopeside, right at the base of Whistler Mountain in the Village, the GLC has a large, heated outdoor patio that's perfect for people-watching. In the winter, the patio is the perfect place to watch the Sunday evening Fire & Ice Show where skiers and snowboarders fly through dazzling rings of fire. View in Google Maps


The Longhorn Saloon
A Whistler institution for more than 25 years, the Longhorn sits right at the base of Whistler and Blackcomb Mountains in the Village (right across from the GLC). The atmosphere is casual with a mix of locals and visitors; lots of storytelling happens on the sun-filled patio. View in Google Maps


Blackcomb Mountain's best party always starts at Merlins. Head over to the Upper Village and right at the base of the Wizard Express chairlift is where you'll find live music, bar-top dancing, a gondola DJ booth suspended from the ceiling and a large, laid-back and sunny patio. A local's favourite, kids are allowed until 7:00 pm. View in Google Maps


Dusty's Bar & BBQ
Whistler's original watering hole has been serving locals and visitors alike in Whistler Creekside since the early days of 1965. This slopeside, classic western ski lodge has wood-beamed ceilings, a pool table and a cozy fireplace. Something's always going on whether it's live music, interactive trivia games or professional sports on the big-screen. View in Google Maps
