The lifestyle website, Condé Nast Traveler, released a feature highlighting some of the greatest bars in the entire world and it features a bit of Canadian pride. The feature asked bartenders and cocktail experts from around the world to submit their picks for the best watering holes. One such pick was Calgary’s own Milk Tiger Lounge.
Colin Tait, head bartender at Bangkok’s Vesper Cocktail Bar & Restaurant, named the Albertan establishment as his choice and offered up this praise:
“I know what you’re thinking—’Calgary, cocktails, eh?’—but this is a bar you can definitely call a home away from home. Their level of expertise and dedication to the craft is excellent. And it’s not just the serious cocktails that make this place great; the guys [who] work the stick are some of the friendliest in the business, what I would call true hosts. They are as happy talking all things spirits as they are pulling pints with great banter. Milk Tiger is also a great place to meet people, a comfortable space that works for a quiet drink during the week and a bustling good time on Friday night. Everyone can have a great time here; it’s second to none.”
