Cozy bar with stunning views
Smaller bar with relaxed atmosphere on weekdays, picking up after hours with government/city employees. Relax with a drink, great conversation, and one of the best views in the city.

      Best place to dance
      Lookout is a great bar in the Byward Market, on the second floor above Kinki restaurant with awesome bar tenders and cute guys. Tuesday and Wednesday are popular karaoke nights while Thursday and Saturday are popular nights for guys with each night having a drag show. Gets busy around 12 AM.

      Horrible Attitude and Service
      My boyfriend and I were visiting his family in Ottawa this past July. He doesn't drink and was meeting up with some friends at The Carleton in Westboro. So his sister and I decided to go because I heard this place was pretty cool on Thurs. nights. Boy was I wrong. Before we even walked in we were looked down with attitude by 2 queens for no apparent reason. The bartender wasn't much better either. She ordered a sprite and he gave her the dirtiest look ever. When I ordered my pitcher of beer he wasn't pleasant at all. We continued to get some weird by lets face it, not the best looking guys ever. So I decided to slam my pitcher and we decided to go back to The Carleton. Where we were treated much better and frankly had a better time with it being a straight pub. This place is 86'd from my places to go back to when I go back to Ottawa.

      Tuesday to Friday are you best nights for a party. The choice depends on what you are after. (described below) The staff are cute and usually friendly.
