Night life in Banff? ( mid to late twenties guy)

Is there one...? and if so what's the best place to go?

Am travelling alone so thought it'd be good to meet with other people a long the way.

Recommendations for nights out and meet up ideas!

Cheers,

John

Hi John!

Treejo is right for recommending Wild Bill's! It's one of Banff's largest bars (there's 3 in there!) and it has some really awesome live music options and mechanical bull riding every Tuesday!

Banff has no shortage of great bars and pubs (most of which offer pool tables, dart boards, and the like); plus we also have 2 nightclubs, The Hoodoo and The Dancing Sasquatch. You can find all of these places within the 2-block radius around Banff Avenue and Bear Street - be sure to keep and eye on the places along the side-streets in between too!

Have fun!

Kate

Besides the ones already mentioned.... check out the Rose and Crown. Across the street from Wild BIll's and has live entertainment.

Banff kind of works on a rotation...a recommended bar for a certain day...you will need to look in a bit deeper to know which one. Locals don't flock to Wild Bills (not 20 year olds anyways)....though it is a great well rounded bar...and big. Rose and Crown is a popular spot as mentioned.

If your looking for loud weekends...the Dancing Sasquatch is always lined up, but can be a bit heavy on the "guy" ratio. I personally like the new "High Rollers"...great craft beer, bowling, TV's showing awesome ski videos, oh, and Fridays have a GREAT pizza deal. I also like St James for sitting solo at the bar front (Irish pub), and Banff Ave Brewing for a local feel with great beer and pub food.

Plenty of the transient workers flock to Wild Bill's, but only Tuesday. Wednesday is Rose and Crown, weekends are the clubs... Sasquatch being the better one... There will be lines. No shortage of pretty young people with a few older ones mixed in. Speaking from personal experience. As with anywhere some nights are better than others.
