Where to get drunk in Hamilton


This post will be updated with the best places to¬†drink in Hamilton. First let’s look at the best places to drink/party by day. There’s a few main places to try if this list becomes out of date. Hess Village, ¬†Augusta, Locke Street, Westdale and James Street. There’s a few outliers like Corktown downtown and Baranga’s on the Beach out in Stoney Creek but nothing much on the Mountain other then a few dive bars a cookie cutter franchise restaurants. If you do live on the Mountain, specifically the west mountain. I would suggest trying The Brassie Pub. Expect it to get pretty lively but it’s an environment for sitting in a chair and drinking aka chill nights.
