"Elgin Street" Elgin Street Tip by europebn

Elgin Street, Ottawa: 12 reviews and 7 photos

Here you find more pubs and bars, which many are restaurants early, and turn into drinking holes later on. Some even serve 'pub grub'. Elgin Street usually caters to a little older crowd, mid 20s and 30s. It is a nice change of pace from the market, but still can get crazy at times.

Warning, if you're driving, get there early, not much parking available, and you may be driving around for 30 minutes before you find anything.

Dress Code: Variety of dress codes, most places are smart casual, but you could get away with jeans in some places.

Theme: Eating and Drinking

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
