Adara Insider: Whistler's Hottest Club Nights
Posted: Thursday, December 12, 2013
The Adara Insider is a new series of tips and tricks that will help you make the most out of your Whistler vacation!
This first one answers a very commonly asked question: "Where's the party at tonight?"
Yesterday, two guests asked me if there was anything to do at night during the week or if things only heat up on the weekends? I smiled and reassured them that there's always something going on in Whistler, seven days a week. In fact, the weekday club nights are often busier than Fridays and Saturdays!
Tommy Africa's - Legendary '80s Night
Even if you weren't born before 1990, Legendary '80s Night with DJ Ryder is the best place to go on a Monday night. Dance to retro '80s throwbacks and old school dance jams with classic moves like the swimmer, sprinkler, and monkey. If you dress in '80s gear and get there before 10 PM you might win a prize (including cash) for best outfit! Get there early for glow in the dark bracelets, necklaces, and face/body paint upon entry. Running for 16 years, this is one of Whistler's most exciting nights that gets packed full every week. Also, the first 50 people get free cover!
Come down to the front desk and ask for a special 2013/2014 Access Pass that includes complimentary cover for 2 before 10 PM!
Maxx Fish - Really Good Tuesdays
Do you like dubstep, grime, trap, glitch hop, and a bit of drumstep, drum and bass? Then don't miss Mat The Alien's Really Good Tuesdays, Whistler's longest running weekly night for bass music. Mat is known as Western Canada's #1 Party DJ and travels the world playing music on weekends. Joining him in the booth this season is The Librarian, founder of The bass Coast Project, who will blast you with her incredible beats. Want to know the Really Good part? It's FREE cover all night!
Ask the front desk team for an "I Know Maxx" special access card to get you in the VIP line and free cover every night.
Buffalo Bills - Industry Night
Luckily, you won't have to wander very far from your room to find Buffalo Bills - it's literally attached to the hotel! Every Wednesday is Industry Night with DJ Peacefrog who mixes new and classic house/hip hop/rock/mashups all night long. Show up early to play the summer games for Bill's money and for a chance to win an ENDEAVOR snowboard!
Also, if you show your Adara Hotel room key at the door you'll get free cover before 10 PM!
Garfinkel's - Local's Night
Thursdays at Garfs (for short) are one of Whistler's longest running locals' nights and parties. Every week they give away snowboard swag and Snowride Adventures backcountry snowmobile tours so be sure to get there early. DJ RICHA and Turtle spin the beats down in the town's largest nightclub. If you're looking for the most authentic Whistler club experience, this is definitely where you want to be.
Come down and ask for directions since this one can be a bit tricky to find.
Friday & Saturday
Brandy's - All Love No Club
Every bar and club in Whistler will have something going on Fridays and Saturdays... but something a little different for a more mature crowd to check out both nights is Brandy's at The Keg. DJ Tim Livingstone keeps the local's vibe upbeat and the party rolling until 2 AM with a fresh remix of all your favourites, while streaming the best videos from the internet. This is Whistler's only above-ground nightclub and also has FREE cover all night!
For the typical club scene, Get Loose Fridays at Maxx Fish and Check-In Fridays with DJ Rosco at Moe Joe's are always a good time. On Saturdays, check out the Saturday Night Shaker at Maxx Fish or Party Central Saturdays at Tommy Africa's.
Moe Joe's - The Sunday Glow Party
Whistler's busiest and most popular club night is The Sunday Glow Party at Moe Joe's! Get lit up with glow in the dark necklaces, bracelets, face and body paint upon entry. Dance to DJs Fidel Ca$hflow and Jayse Aspey as they spin the best in high energy electronic dance music.
If you get there after 10:30 PM you might find yourself waiting in a long line so it's a good idea to go early, grab some glow gear, get painted, and by that time the dance floor will be jam packed anyways!
