Home to inspired cocktails, artisan beers, locally crafted Empress 1908 Gin and the best BC Martini on the coast, Q Bar is the only bar on Vancouver Island to make the 2020 list. Grab a seat at the bar or settle into a plush couch with friends and prepare to be seduced by the energetic scene. Q Bar is the perfect place to create new memories and celebrate day or night.
