Where the world gets together to Eat, Drink & Play! 

You’ll find Banff’s best backpacker bar tucked inside the Samesun Banff hostel lobby, where you can enjoy cheap drinks, affordable, delicious food and lots of fun! Locals and travelers alike meet in this cozy watering hole every night of the week for a relaxed atmosphere & good times. It’s a great place to chill over a few cheap beers, start your night on the town and meet other backpackers & travelers. We host awesome parties – Australia Day, Canada Day, New Year’s & St Patricks and our local favorite, Halloween! If you’re in Banff for any of these nights – get involved, they’re epic!

The Beaver Banff has something on every night of the week. After finishing a tasty meal with new friends, stick around for our nightly events! Our Trivia kicks off every Wednesday at 10PM. We have spectacular Quiz Masters ready to test your knowledge and have a laugh with you! Our Karaoke is a locals favourite and deserves no other name than EPIC. Live Music with local talent every Tuesday is a solid way to kick back and enjoy a brewski too. BINGO FRIDAYS (with a monthly Dirty Bingo Twist!) will test your luck but don’t find yourself calling a false Bingo, we have entertaining consequences…

Every night of the week we’ll have fun events to get everyone involved and having a good time! Check out our activity calendar for what’s on while you’re here.
