Description: The Beaver Bar in Banff, Alberta is a funky little backpacker spot to exercise your liver. You'll find us tucked in next to the Samesun hostel lobby, so you don't even have to brave the Canadian Rocky Mountain wind chill to enjoy an affordable beverage. It may be smaller than the Vancouver hostel bar, but its cheery atmosphere has satisfied many a backpacker and its intimacy has made it a top venue choice for indie bands from across Canada. The Banff hostel provides awesome enertainment at The Beaver Bar.It's a great place to chill over a few affordable beers, start out your night on the town, or meet other backpacker types. We host a theme party once a month and put on quite a show for all our international backpackers & their holidays: Halloween, Australia Day, Canada Day, New Years & St Paddy's. We also have live band performances twice a month giving the hostel a groovy heartbeat. If you're here for any of these nights - get involved, they're epic! Our Thursday open mic night and Sunday roast are also known in town as a lively option if you're keen for some fun. Whether you are rolling down the stairs from your hostel bed or driving in through the Rocky Mountains to come in for a cold one, you know you are getting the most economical food & beverage in town.

Reviewed 14 October 2013 via mobile

I have been coming to The Beaver Bar for over a year. It has always been consistent with great value food ($6.50 dinner special every night) and a fun atmosphere with different activities every night ranging from open mic to trivia and bingo! It's a great place to meet people - those that are new in town and seasoned Banffites! The staff are always a lot of fun and easy to get along with, it makes for a fun place to pre drink or spend the whole night in there! Must try Agwabomb Bombs!!

“Bargain in Banff”
Reviewed 19 April 2013

For all of those who don't think that there are good values in Banff, they just haven't looked. This place has a pleasant little pub where at the end of a day of skiing you can get a $6 delicious hot meal and a $4 draft to enjoy it with, all while enjoying a fun friendly atmosphere.
