Not always thought of as a nightlife hot spot, Edmonton is home to a number of great bars, covering everything from quick after-work drinks to the rowdiest of nights out.
Alongside their tasty food menu, Woodwork also serves up some great drinks as the evening goes on. As the name hints, the owners here have a particular penchant for barrel-aged spirits, leading to an impressive offering of gins and whiskies. The cocktail menu is ever-changing but always inventive, so don’t hesitate to ask the servers for their personal recommendations.

A busy pub with two locations in Edmonton, The Pint is a go-to for sports fans looking to catch the big game. Thanks to its compact outdoor patio, it’s also a great spot to grab a drink or hit the dancefloor for a mixture of top 40 hits and ’90s classics. Make sure to keep an eye out for their signature caesers, served in a glass boot!
One of Edmonton’s more upmarket bars is The Common, a gastro-lounge that specializes in delicious cocktails. Open for both lunch and dinner, this is also a great late night spot, where crowds descend on the place for drinks and dancing thanks to its great reputation for music. The atmosphere is lively and fun, guaranteeing a good time.
