40th birthday

A few of us are heading up to Whistler for a friend's 40th birthday. Can anyone recommend a good bar for dancing that has either live music or plays more classic rock/80's type music as opposed to house or hip hop?

Buffalo Bills is generally better for an older crowd, but is still more a club...

Dublin Gate is an Irish themed bar that often has live music.

Look into 'The Hairfarmers' - a local band that plays all over the place. Really good act, and play an assortment of all kinds of music. Quite often they are playing at one of the mountain bars (GLC,Merlins or Dustys)

Tommy Africa's is a real nightclub set-up, which is aimed at the 'kids' but they do have an '80's' night, which is either Mon or Tues.

Not much else that I can think of right now, Whistler really lacks a 'live-band' scene.
