To the owners and operator’s of Crash Hotel, I would like to say thank you for taking one of the sketchiest places in the city that I would never recommend to anyone I loved and executing your vision to make it a real destination venue that patrons can now be excited about visiting. It’s attached to Denizen Hall, which is a super fun arcade bar with exceptionally good food, and sits on top of the Chvrch of John. Enjoy the photos.

Storm troopers from Norway, perhaps.
Star Wars-themed room.
The lion was pretty cool.
Mojito room. The guy serving drinks in here self-identified as “over-served.”
Bros selling shirts with pizzas on them in the crayon gun room.
A lousy shot of an awesome DJ spinning some heavy drum & bass. If you know his name, please let me know.
My favourite room of the night. This took me back to the drum & bass jungle music I listened to in grade 10 and the raves I never attended.
The luggage room. Apparently, during renos, someone had an emergency and used one of these suitcases as a toilet. Luckily, it was discovered before being installed permanently in the wall display.
The speaker room. I like this one. I hope people don’t poke the cones, though.
As you can see, the night had a certain Studio 54 flare.
The bar in the lobby.

“What the heck is Best Bar None, anyway?” That was my question when Dave Young invited me to attend a walking tour of 4 BBN accredited downtown Edmonton bars. At first, it seemed odd to invite a straight-edge guy to a series of bars, although it didn’t take long for
