CANADA’S BEST NEW BARS
Our first-ever ranking of the country’s top new spots for a tipple.
HAVING TACKLED CANADA’S BEST NEW RESTAURANTS FOR nearly two decades – come back next month for this year’s list – we were up for another challenge. And we needed a drink. So Air Canada enRoute sent a discerning barfly (armed with expert recommendations and plenty of coconut water) on a month-long, coast-to-coast crawl to track down the nation’s best new bars. They had just one shot to impress our writer, whom we made sure they never saw coming. There were many stellar cocktails and tons of tasty snacks, but when the crawl ended and the hangover lifted, the choice was clear. Here are the greatest new places to drink in Canada right now.
