Established in 1995, Tommy’s is a friendly downtown Banff institution. This is a favourite place to rub shoulders with locals, and enjoy good Canadian and English pub food and drink. Restaurant owner (and the pub’s namesake) Tom Soukas is especially proud of the homemade soups and sauces that accompany meals.
The casual décor includes pine furniture and finishes, stained glass, wood carvings and eclectic memorabilia. There‘s a central bar with counter seating and a small sidewalk patio beside Banff Avenue. Enjoy big screen HD sports, darts and video games. During the day Tommy’s is family friendly; it becomes lively later at night.
Partake in open mic night Wednesdays 10 pm to close (or just enjoy the music).
