Bars - Après / Nightlife

Obviously all of the best Apres ski bars are near the bottom of the lifts and it goes without saying you can’t not notice them wherever you get off of the mountain, so here is a quick rundown of the main ones.

Blackcomb Gondola (upper village)


Merlins is right at the ski racks at the base here and has a large double decker bar and a large patio.

Whistler Mountain Village Gondola and Excalibur Gondola

Dubh Linn Gate

This pub located at the base of the Excalibur gondola has a medium sized heated patio and a great atmosphere that’ll transport you straight back to Ireland. With nightly live music over 25 beers on tap and great food it is a great place to be after a long day on the slopes.

Longhorn Saloon

This Apres bar is situated right at the base of the Whistler village gondola and Excalibur gondola. This is the busiest and most popular apres bar in Whistler with a huge heated patio and music that is always pumping.

Garibaldi Lift Co

The GLC is located in the same building at the Whistler village gondola and has a large, elevated, heated patio that is great for people watching in the village and skiers finishing up there day.

This popular bar sets itself apart from the Apres bars with a sophisticated lounge, restaurant and club vibe. They frequently have live bands and there menu is not your typical apres food.

Chicken T&A, butter chicken poutine, sex cheese as well as typical pub favourites such as burgers and nachos.
