This last installment of the series features hotel bars from all over Canada including Ottawa, Whistler and even Kananaskis.


Blacktail Bar at Pomeroy Kananaskis Mountain Lodge in Kananaskis, Alberta  They were making some really nice cocktails, they were creative utilizing smoke, wood chips, marshmallows, really unexpected.  The bartenders seemed to know what they were doing and the ambiance was something special. Henry Jones – Product Marketing Manager

Copper Spirits & Sights at the Andaz Ottawa in Ottawa, Ontario:  It's easily the best rooftop bar in Ottawa, with a great view of Parliament Hill and the ByWard Market. Their Caesar is amazing, they used crushed ketchup chips for the rim! – Emily Hajduk, Travel Manager

Mallard Lounge at the Fairmont Whistler in Whistler, British Colombia Picture cozying in to a table overlooking snow falling on Blackcomb mountain, fire roaring behind you as the bartender delivers the perfect dirty martini!!! Queue the live music, Mallard Lounge FTW – Lucy Kopic , Client Relationship Manager
