The list of Canada’s best new restaurants is back, and with its return comes Canada’s best bars! The 2022 list takes a look at the country’s top drinking establishments from coast to coast.

According to Canada’s Best Bars editor Alexandra Gill, nearly half of the 2022 winners are new or newly listed bars. This includes Vancouver’s Laowai, which was voted Canada’s best new bar. As for the top spot this year? That goes to Toronto’s Civil Liberties, which has taken the coveted #1 position from Bar Raval, also in Toronto – which won the past three years.
