The Keefer Bar

What to Remember

There are a few things you need to remember before heading out in Canada, not only to ensure you have the best time, but also to ensure you don’t upset any locals also following the “rules.”

Get on the List

Most clubs rely on bookings or guestlists, and while many will accept walk-ins, if you are planning on enjoying a booth or bottle service, booking in advance is essential. This will also mean you can get in even if the club is incredibly busy; no need to wait in line.

Hotspots are Busy

While this may seem obvious, never underestimate just how busy the popular hotspots get. Many of these venues can’t hold hundreds and hundreds of people, and once you are in, many don’t leave until the club closes. Booking or arriving early can save you a lot of hassle.

Mind Your Manners

Finally, Canadians are known for their manners, and this extends into nightclubs and bars as well. While you don’t need to do any more than being polite, extreme rowdiness and rudeness can get you thrown out of the club really quick.
