About

Keep the fun going way after last run. Hailed as one of the top ten après experiences in the world, the GLC is Whistler’s social heart, where day meets night, where the freshly-coiffed spa-goer meets the hat-headed rider, where tall tales meet magic moments, and where fresh DJ sets meet live music and masterfully curated playlists.

It is an intimate venue for some of the best musical acts to play the West Coast, fueling fun as well as feeding appetites, with a variety of dishes such as flatbreads, pastas, sandwiches, salads and shareable appetizers. Don't forget the communal pitchers and top-shelf cocktails.

The buzz on getting your buzz on

It’s no secret that the GLC is an awesome place to relax, grab something to eat, have a drink or warm up by the massive fireplace. And here's some of the press we've been getting:

Best Patio: Winner of Best of Whistler 6 years in a row, 2011-2017, in Pique Newsmagazine. “The massive patio is idyllic on a bluebird day, when you can watch skiers cruise down the slopes of the mountain.”

Best Après: Winner of Best of Whistler 5 years in a row, 2012-2017, in Pique Newsmagazine. “After a long day on the mountain all you want is a relaxed place to kick back, unwind and regroup before doing it all over again. Ask a Whistlerite for the best après spot and, chances are, they'll point you towards the GLC.”

Best Place to See Live Music: Winner of Best of Whistler 2012-2014 and 2016-2017 in Pique Newsmagazine. “The acoustics in the room are great and there are a lot of great sightlines. There's not a bad seat in the house.”

"The place to kick off your Langes and slug a frothy brew. Located at the base of the Whistler Village gondola, it’s got a sprawling patio, a fireplace to warm your wet gear, and most importantly, a big-ass bar.” – Skinet.com

"The closest bar to the slopes. Watch the powder-mad geeks on Whistler Mountain slide to a halt from the patio, as the rock-lined GLC is a reliable après-ski hangout for a big burger and a Kootenay Mountain Ale." – Lonelyplanet.com
