Downtown Rideau has two of the best cocktail and wine Bars in Ottawa!
The Albion Rooms located in the Novotel Ottawa, is a gorgeous cocktail bar specializing in craft cocktails and farm-to-table bites. The drink menu is vast, consisting of various local craft beers, popular commercial beers, spirits, and of course a plethora of delicious wines and beautifully concocted cocktails. If alcohol isn’t really your thing, they also serve up a great selection of kombucha and old-fashioned soda. A great spot to spend the evening with some good company.
Avant-Garde is the best, and possibly only, Russian bar in Ottawa. They offer an array of Russian vodka, beer, cocktails and more. Avante-Garde also hosts a variety of events regularly like cocktail nights, live band shows so it’s definitely a spot to check out on a Friday night. Also, don’t forget to order an authentic Russian snack like pelmeni dumplings or borscht from their amazing food menu to go with your drink!
