Fernie's compact size reveals plenty of fun day and night. One popular local hangout is the Northern Bar & Stage, known for its regular live entertainment, great pub food, and beers served on its patio. If you're looking for a craft brew, the casual, family-friendly Bridge Bistro has a selection of European-influenced fare, alongside small-batch beers produced by the hometown Fernie Brewing Co.
On the mountain, soak up the après-ski vibe at any of Fernie Alpine Resort's venues. Check out the Ice Bar at Lizard Creek Lodge, the Griz Bar, or Rusty Edge. For different takes on evening fun, the Redtree Lodge downtown offers events like wine tastings and weekly live music, while the Arts Station is the town's cultural hub with open studio sessions, a concert series, and theatre performances.
