If the presidential election goes a certain way, a lot of people will be apartment hunting in Toronto and Vancouver. Fortunately, it could be a lot worse: both cities boast beautiful parks, great ‘hoods, and some of the best gay bars and bartenders in the world.

In celebration of the Stoli Key West Cocktail Classic, vote for your favorite bartender, whether Canadian or otherwise, once per day from May 20, 2016-Jun 2, 2016. Based on your votes, the winners advance to the finale competition at Key West Pride.

Check out 7 of our fave Canadian bars & lounges:

1. The Junction Public House (Vancouver)

2. Numbers (Vancouver)

Vancouver’s longest-running gay club, there are special nights for Karaoke, pool, keggers, and more.

3. Church on Church (Toronto)

Located in Toronto’s Boystown, CHURCH on Church offers something for everyone. Stop in for a drink afterwork and you’ll probably end up dancing the night away.

4. Gotham Steakhouse (Vancouver)


Add a little meat to your cocktails at the Gotham Steakhouse.

5. Crews & Tangos (Toronto)

Great atmosphere at these two converted Victorian houses. There is always some kind of drag or other spectacle in the works and the crowd is always ready to party.

6. O’Grady’s (Toronto)

O’Gradys is a cozy pub complete with two fireplaces, a private lounge and two large patios. It’s the perfect place to find a yummy midnight snack.

7. Shangri-la (Toronto)


The lounge is a destination where art and architecture are emphasized. Sculptures and an Italian handcrafted Fazioli piano are set amid contemporary dove-grey leather sofas and chairs.

Vote for your favorite bartender once per day from May 20, 2016-Jun 2, 2016. Based on your votes, the winners advance to the finale competition at Key West Pride.
