A Bar Crawl Through Langley
By Grace Swanson
Langley may appear to be a quiet village by the sea, but it has quite the diverse and booming nightlife. If you are looking for a glass of wine, a cocktail, or pint of beer, here are some places to visit when the sun goes down.
Start your night out with a cold, refreshing brewski. Since opening its doors in 2015, Double Bluff Brewing Company has been brewing beer on site made from quality grains. Snack on a fresh, delicious pretzel between sips. If the sun is shining, take your drink outside on their patio for a truly lovely experience.
“Wine” a little at Ott and Murphy Winery, a tasting room and cabaret. Order a glass or taste a variety of their artisan wines. Using traditional French techniques, they produce small lots of wine with a delicious taste and aroma. After a glass of of liquid courage, you may be ready to dance to the live music, which generally plays on Fridays and Saturdays.
If you are looking for somewhere to enjoy your drink with a stunning view, then Prima Bistro is the place to be. This French-inspired restaurant has an extensive selection of wine from all over the world and a full cocktail bar. Their deck is the perfect summer place to sit, drink in hand, and take in views of Northwest beauty.
You’ll never know what to expect at Kalakala Mercantile Co. From s’mores by the fire to live music sessions, this animation studio/café sure knows how to have a good time. They also offer quality beer and wine.
Those looking for more of a bar or pub scene, should hop on over to the the Spyhop Public House. This bar may be the new kid on the block, but it already provides a delightful community-gathering place to have a drink or grab dinner. Their burgers and caesar salad come highly recommended.
Please don’t drink and drive! Call the All Island Express Taxi if you need a ride.
