Canada’s best bars for 2022 have been unveiled, and the list takes a look at the country’s top drinking establishments from coast to coast. One Calgary bar is in the top 20, can you guess which one?

First off, let’s look at the list as a whole. 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.

In Alberta, Proof in Calgary came in at the 12th spot, and at 15 is Edmonton’s Clementine.

Proof is no stranger to to being on top of food & beverage lists. It is a whimsical spot, with limited space and a smokey atmosphere. Their menu is inspired by classic literature, which gives it a sense of theatricality, and their drinks are carefully curated, and hella strong – just like their concept! Proof knows exactly what and who they are, and that’s evident in their decor, item list, and their staff.

Cheers, Calgary!
