Favourite Bars & Pubs in Kelowna

Kelowna is known for its nightlife! Fancy a drink on the town, a boozy brunch or a casual dinner? Here’s our favourite pubs and bars suitable for every occasion and every time of day. 

CRAFT Beer Market 

CRAFT Beer Market is loved by everyone!  They specialise in craft beer (over 100 beers on tap!) accompanied with local food. On weekends, CRAFT offers an excellent brunch menu—for anyone who doesn’t want to cook breakfast—with items such as chicken and waffles or breakfast tacos.  Daily happy hour features $4 beers and $6 wines! Elevate your experience by attending the monthly Brewmaster’s Dinner which includes a four course meal and beer pairings.

Address: 257 Bernard Ave.

Phone: 778-741-2337.

Tonic’s Pub and Grill

Tonic’s is a great place for any event, whether it be casual or formal. They offer a fantastic happy hour in addition to nightly specials.  For example, Saturday night is Steak and Lobster night, whilst Wednesday night is wings night (available in 33 flavours including Caribbean jerk, pineapple curry and spicy caesar!) The food menu is large and offers everything from burgers and salads to pizzas and pastas. Drinks include premium spirits, imported and domestic beers, and a selection of wines. Sporting events are shown on the two big screens.

Address: 1654 Ellis St.

Doc Willoughby’s Public House 

Doc Willoughby’s is open until 2am every day of the week, so it’s the perfect venue for late night drinks! The pub is named after Dr. Charles James McNeil Willoughby who was a physician with the British Royal Medical Corps. In his retirement, he spent summers in his cottage at Shuswap Lake and was well-loved in the community. 

Menu highlights include cheap and cheerful burgers, Okanagan wines, and a variety of beers (international and local). Hosts a range of special events like hip hop bingo and music nights. 

Address: 353 Bernard Ave.

Phone: 250-868-8288.

Central Kitchen + Bar  

Central Kitchen + Bar are consistently nominated for Kelowna’s “Best Burger”—so that alone is an excuse to try out their food.  They market themselves as the “Neighbourhood Local” and want everyone to feel welcome. The food menu offers delicious, creative dishes such as plant-based poutine, tuna tataki burger and bacon chorizo mushroom pizza.  Daily happy hour and weekly drinks specials too (personally, we love Mondays when the margaritas are $5.50!) As well as a range of beers and wines, Central Kitchen also offer craft cocktails like elderflower sour which includes gin, elderflower liquor, lime juice and egg white. The ideal place for any celebration!

Address: 1155 Ellis St.

Phone: 250-862-8820.
