The Downtowner:  City Sippers

Start at one end of St Paul Street and roam your way to the other. We like to start at OddBar for a pint and a pizza pie. Next, we head up the street to Fiddler’s Pour House for a crisp cider or classic cocktail. Onward to Kully’s Original Sports Bar where the local bevvies are plentiful and the game is always on. When it’s time to stretch your legs, head back down St Paul Street to finish up your afternoon or evening with a casual meal at The Merchant Ale House with their onsite brewing and array of cocktail concoctions. Or, for an intimate dining experience, take your chances on a table at Oddbird where the eclectic menu is as interesting as the drink options.

If you’re headed out for an evening on the town pop into Kully’s Original Sports Bar for a local libation and a bite before you take in a little entertainment across the street at the FirstOntario Performing Arts Centre – enjoy comedy, music or a film house classic! Kick back and relax with a craft beverage and some popcorn to keep you going. Cap the night off at Mahtay Café, where music, art & culture are as amazing as the food, drinks and specialty coffee.

There are so many unique locations within walking distance in downtown St Catharines, there’s an endless way to spend your afternoon, evening, or late night of sipping and sampling. More top spots are listed here:

  • Merchant Ale House
  • Kully’s Original Sports Bar
