While there is tons to explore in Ottawa during the day, you’ll also find plenty of nightlife in Canada’s capital city, whether you’re looking for a low-key kind of place or a vibrantly edgy music venue. Restaurants and pubs line Elgin Street with clubs mixed in every now and then. This eclectic strip really comes alive at night, with music seeping through the windows and partiers pouring out on balconies and patios; from D’Arcy McGee’s Irish pub to The Manx, Elgin Street offers a plethora of nightlife options.
Another exciting part of town is ByWard Market, which is a similar sort of mix as Elgin Street. This area has everything from dance clubs like Zaphod Beeblebrox and Barrymore’s Music Hall to dueling piano bars such as Fat Tuesday’s.
