I was kicked out of this place just cause I was cleaning my nose in the washroom and one of the bouncers assumed I was using drugs. Try to explain I wasn't doing anything and he pushed me out. A local guy saw when they pushed me out and he told me that lots of people had been trough the... More

I used to love dancing the night away with my BFF when we were younger and after many years I went back but this time with my husband for 80"s night. I loved that it still was a lot of fun all these years later. Great atmosphere and friendly staff!

This club is a dirty hole and the head door man is an aggressive idiot. The bathrooms are disgusting and the music was terrible. Not worth the cover charge. Wont be going there again..

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.
