One new watering hole in Vancouver has cracked the ‘Canada’s Best New Bars‘ list for 2018.

Air Canada’s enRoute magazine, known for its annual ranking of the country’s best new restaurants, has unveiled an entirely new list for the best new bars in Canada.

For this list, a panel recommends places across the country that should be considered, one single writer goes around anonymously to vet all the contenders. This one writer comes up with the Top 10.

enRoute sent their (lucky) judge on a month-long, coast-to-coast journey to track down the nation’s best new bars that opened between April 2017 and May 2018.

Bars had just one shot (not literally) to impress the judge and once the smoke and the hangovers cleared, the list was unveiled and one spot in Vancouver made the top 10.
