Had a great time over the weekend at Tommy Africa's. The music was everything you hear today and some classic hits. Great crowd, everyone seemed to be having fun.

I am a non drinker enjoying a cover band playing songs. The crowd was enjoying the live show, I slipped in the crowd and I was mistaken for a heavily intoxicated patron and was tossed onto the street. I opposed the male doorman and was abused further. I have a broken finger and bleeding nose. They finally returned my lost... More

This bar would be great if it weren't for the abusive head doorman and rude (bussers?) I've been here a few times and i've never been so abused by male bar staff in my life. Last year my friends and i had to deal with a horrible busser (i think because he was carrying around bus bins) He was big,... More

This place is horrible. Staff are rude and the bouncers are violent and looking to jump people for no given reason. Go anywhere in whistler EXCEPT Tommy Africas.

Monday, Friday and Saturdays are the nights to go. 80s night on Mondays go off! Friday and Saturdays are a mixed of dance and top 40s which also goes off. Get in before 11 to avoid big lines. It's also common to be dancing amongst pro skiers and Olympians.

Went here for my buddies birthday, and thought bottle service was a great present for him. Little did I know that this place doesn't know what VIP means. $250 for a bottle of vodka, but they don't leave the bottle on the table (Canada law, but they didn't let us know ahead of time.) Our bottle came with some skimmed... More

I must say that Whistler is a great place for tourists but this place should be left off all tourist's stops. The DJ is horrible and refuses to play music that they paying customers want to hear and the drinks leave something to be desired.

Just going to go ahead and say thanks to the Tommy's staff for treating me and my friends so well every time I come into the bar. I do frequent Whistler, and when I head to Tommy's I can be assured that the music is pumping, the staff is working their butts off, and everyone in the bar is having... More
