A majority (if not all) of Whistler-Blackcomb's nightlife is located in the town of Whistler itself. There are plenty of spots to choose from but we figured we'd get you started with a few of our favorites.Cure Lounge & Patio - a casual, yet slightly swanky lounge with good cocktails and a nice view of the Nita Lake.
Crystal Lounge - great happy hour specials, food, karaoke and comfy chairs...what else do you really need?
The Mallard Lounge - an upscale experience with a wide variety of food and drinks to choose from.
Dubh Linn Gate - live music almost every night and a classic pub vibe.
