REVEALED: Canada’s best gin bars

Canada's best gin bars

NB Gin recently launched in Canada so we thought it was time to review its establishment’s and give you this list of Canada’s best gin bars… So here we go!

Vancouver’s best gin bars

Uva Wine and Cocktail Bar

Uva is a fantastic place to go in Vancouver during the day and at night. What we love so much about this establishment is the variety of contemporary cocktails on offer, as well as some truly fabulous classics.

It also boasts some of the most knowledgeable staff of any bar in Vancouver.


Nestled in the heart of Chinatown, Juniper is a fantastically relaxed and stylish cocktail bar that will instantly suck you in.

As well as an impressive gin offering, it’s Canadian-inspired food is one of the triumphs in this neighbourhood’s restaurant scene.

Can’t choose what to order from the drinks or food menu? Ask the staff. They’re as passionate about gin and good food as we are!

Montreal’s best gin bars


This gorgeous establishment, in the heart of old Montreal, has been a big hit since its current incarnation was launched in 2008.

As well as wonderful food, Barroco does incredible cocktails.

La Distillerie No. 3

If you’re looking for a lively atmosphere, a huge selection of fabulous spirits and cocktails that’ll keep you coming back, then it has to be La Distillerie No. 3. We LOVE this establishment and you will too.

Ile noire

This Scottish pub in the heart of Montreal simply had to go on our list (it’s Scottish for goodness sake) but also because they make a mean gin and tonic. It’s a venue that’s more known for its whiskies but the gins on offer are fab.

Toronto’s best gin bars

JOEY Don Mills

If you’re looking for small and intimate, you won’t find it here. This bar is unashamedly big and bold but we love it for that.

There’s a wonderful selection of gins and we’d recommend you hit the patio and enjoy your G&T in the sun… after you’ve experienced Don Mills’ exceptional shopping of course…

Tequila Bookworm

Don’t let the name put you off. There are few gin bars in Toronto that can match Tequila Bookworm for its commitment to making simple classics incredibly well. They even boast a house made tonic!

Order a Negroni and take in the ultra-hip surroundings.

NB Gin was voted the world’s best London Dry gin in 2015. It’s a smooth, Scottish craft gin that can be enjoyed on its own, in cocktails or in a traditional G&T.
