WILD BILL'S SALOON
A Saloon restaurant themed after the legendary cowboy Bill Peyto. Offering nightly contests (calf roping), live country music with line dancing (even lessons), big screen TV’s, and patios with majestic mountain views. Famous bands and celebrities do appear there often. Food is served to a certain point, but the atmosphere is what makes the place so enjoyable.
Nicknamed AWHORA, this is more of a bar/club. DJs, martinis, and an über-cool environment make Aurora the place to be for all the chic club-goers of Banff and surrounding areas. Theme parties are common, so make sure you find out what is going on before you arrive in the wrong costume.
Nicknamed OUTAOPTIONS, this used to be the Hoodoo (nicknamed WHODOYOUDO). It is another basement bar/club. A good place to kick back, dance and play a bit of pool. It is a dance club with a young vibe that is quickly becoming Banff's hippest spot to spend an evening.
ROSE AND CROWN PUB
A bit of an older place, it is still pleasant to sit by the fire and hang out to live music of rock/country/alternative. Live entertainment, good friends, and good times are what the Rose and Crown is all about. This English pub serves tasty food, too.
