Lake Louise — Apres-ski and nightlife
The Powder Keg Lounge upstairs in the Lodge of the Ten Peaks has a large bar, leather easy chairs and enormous floor to ceiling windows. Kokanee Kabin is a gathering spot parked at the bottom of Men’s and Ladies’ Downhill where revelers unwind, especially outdoors on sunny spring days.
Also jump into après-ski and nightlife in town center in the hotels. At The Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise, The Glacier Saloon has a lively atmosphere and dancing, with a more modest menu for family budgets, while the Walliser Stube is a classic four-star hotel lobby lounge. Quiet conversation is possible at The Explorer’s Lounge in the Lake Louise Inn and The Post Hotel’s Outpost. Explorer’s offers DJ and Karaokee nights during the week.
The Kokanee Kabin at Lake Louise is the place where the bands are hot, the beer is cold, the food is great and the decks are sunny! Make sure you try the Hot Apple Pie, a drink containing a blend of apple cider and VX Appleton’s Rum, mixed together with a hint of cinnamon. The Kabin is at the base area of Lake Louise Ski Area, next to the Glacier Express Quad.
Sitz ‘n’ Suds apres-ski and dinner party and Brewster Cowboy’s Barbecue & Dance Barn (above) are lively from the après-ski hours until well after dinner.
There’s plenty of nightlife in Banff as well.
