The people behind the Top 100 Restaurants in Canada are back with a new list, this time highlighting the best bars in the country. Suddenly, your confusion about where to go get a drink this weekend is gone, nice.

Toronto’s Bar Raval is once again the best bar in Canada, with Vancouver’s Keefer Bar directly behind it. Proof, in Calgary, clinched a spot in the top 10, and Edmonton’s own Clementine is in the top 20. Those aren’t bad numbers at all.

Our personal favourite bar, the Shameful Tiki Room in Vancouver, is listed at number 18. But right after it is Edmonton’s own Baijiu, which has the same booze forward approach but with Asian inspiration. We’re going to be at Baijiu a lot this summer, heads up.

Here are all the Alberta entries and their respective rankings:


13. Clementine
20. Bar Bricco
21. Baijiu Bar


8. Proof
37. Betty Lou’s Library
44. Bar Annabelle
48. Milk Tiger

So, make sure you consult this list as soon as possible. We think things will go one of two ways. You could get a confidence boost because you already frequent these places, or, you’ll find out that you might want to step your drinking game up a little.
