The absence of the Canada's 50 Best Bars list (there hasn't been one since 2020) means that this year's entry has an extra celebratory zeal behind it. Canada's 100 Best even declares "Pour us another. Bars are back!"
B.C. also got some love on the list with three other entries, Clive's Classic Lounge in Victoria, the Raven Room in Whistler, and Monashee Spirits Craft Distillery in Revelstoke were also named.
