We went in for tapas and sat at the bar. Charcuterie board was incredible. Chef behind the bar was fantastic, server was new and came by it honestly with a great effort. Nice cocktails as well. Highly recommend sitting at the bar for maximum experience....More

Great gin & tonic menu but a bit pricey ($17.50-21) per drink. The charcuterie boards are fabulous. Great place to go for a drink and a small bite.

No. It's a delightful place but it's not setup for large groups and the menu isn't kid-friendly.

Bar Oso - "oso" meaning "bear" in Spanish, an homage to Whistler's wildlife - is open daily and offers a profusion of Spanish-influenced small plates, tapas, and house-made charcuterie. The long, convivial bar is the ultimate place to meet for hand-crafted cocktails and inspired wines.
