Top Rated Nightlife in Ottawa

Search Radius (Miles)
Gezellig

Located in an erstwhile bank building, Gezellig is an elegant restaurant which offers high quality Canadian food and a range of fine wines. Although the menu concentrates on Canadian dishes, it takes its influences from culinary traditions from the world over. Complementing these flavors perfectly, the wines are carefully chosen from and globally sourced. With neutral tones, mood lighting and tasteful decor, the restaurant is both classy and inviting. Following the meaning of its own name which is a Dutch word for a cozy atmosphere, the restaurant is a perfect place for a family meal.

Beckta Dining & Wine

Beckta restaurant is one of Ottawa's most prized fine dining experiences. It serves contemporary cuisine using many local and regional ingredients and with an accent of Japanese cuisine. The menu is imaginative but in no way intimidating; from their delightfully tender Ontario AAA Striploin to their Squid Bagna Càuda, the meals are lovingly prepared and presented. Beckta is also renowned for its carefully selected wine list and attentive, knowledgeable staff. Reservations are essential.

Restaurant 18

Located in an 18th-century heritage building, the restaurant with its unique mosaic waterfall behind the bar and couches, leather sofas and muted lights offers a relaxed dining ambiance. The menu spans meat and seafood delicacies cooked creatively complementing the Spectator award winning wine list. Combine any of these with one of the fifty wines or their signature flights that perfectly complement your meal. If that's not all, have a foot-tapping time with live DJs playing funky beats.

Play Food & Wine

Another gem from celebrity restaurateur Stephen Beckta, Play is a decidedly different dining concept adding to the rich culinary diversity of Ottawa. The restaurant was established in 2009, and quickly became one of the hottest dining destinations in the city. The menu at Play offers a constantly evolving selection of small plates, crafted using locally-grown, seasonally available ingredients. With the aim of letting diners sample multiple preparations, the menu offers delights like marinated fig, octopus and boar sausage. The selection at the wine bar is one of the city's best, spanning the top wine regions of the world. There's a fine array of cheeses as well as charcuterie for company. Restaurant interiors are tastefully done, with mellow tones, and minimalist décor choices. There's a separate space for private events as well.

Absinthe

Enjoy the sophistication of inventive gourmet cuisine at Absinthe, located in Mechanicsville. Using this modern day bistro as his playground, is owner and chef de cuisine Patrick Garland, where he combines the great produce of the region with classic French cooking techniques. Along with decadent dishes, enjoy superior quality charcuterie and cheeses supplementing the elegant list of wines served here. Creative and well put together, the delicious offerings of this modish restaurant are ever so often applauded by local media and magazines.

Mavericks

The only place in Ottawa that combines great music and a vibrant atmosphere is Mavericks. If you're into the punk genre, this is pure heaven for punk lovers. The place is quiet extensive and is famous for staging popular concerts. Mavericks clientele is quiet stylish and classy and well-facilitated with modern light and sound system to give you a great concert experience. Sip on to some chilled beer or choose from the variety of other spirits offered here while watching your favorite artist perform. Mavericks, truly, is a good times spot.
