Hamilton Drinking Guide

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 There’s a few main places to try if this list becomes out of date.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.
