The Lookout Bar, one of the city”s best kept secrets, is considered by many the heart of Ottawa”s gay community. For decades, the Lookout has been the prevailing gay bar where people come together to socialize, flirt and party real hard. It offers a bias free zone where everyone is welcome. Located on the second floor, it has one of the best views of the market from its licensed balcony.
The Lookout Bar is a pub by day for after work cocktails than transforms itself into the hottest nightclub in the market Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings. Each night is packed with flirtatious fun, hot people with loud club mixes played by some of Ottawa”s finest DJs. Enjoy Thirsty Boy Thursdays, Ottawa”s famous men”s night social, Friday Fixx; when the girls come out and play and Saturday nights are the Saturday Night Live Drag Show. With local and out of town talent, appreciate some of Canada”s greatest female impersonations.
There is always something going on at the Lookout, from Woo Hoo Wednesday (dancing and drag comedy), raved about by people from around the city to $4 Mondays, Karaoke Tuesdays or our Saturday and Sunday afternoon social, a 20-year tradition. Plus our new social “Cinq a Sept” wine and and cheese Wednesdays 4-8. Rated as the bar with the friendliest staff in the city, you will always get served with a smile.
