BANFF, ALTA. – Located right beside Eddie Burger + Bar, downstairs at 137 Banff Ave., is the HooDoo Lounge, a funky mountain lounge with a dance floor that showcases live DJs five nights a week. If you're looking for more of a laid back night on the town during your stay in Banff, you'll eventually end up at the HooDoo.

Although the HooDoo is known as the locals' night club in Banff, it's a favourite among visitors, too. After all, who better to lead the way than the people who live and breathe this town every day. 

Kick back, grab a cocktail, and chill

With its pool tables, comfortable seating, big music system, and loads of TVs, the HooDoo is a great spot to kick back with a beer or a cocktail and chill out before getting out for first tracks the next morning.

"The HooDoo, along with its sister property, the Aurora, has become a Banff institution over the past decade," said Operating Director Joe Gregory. "Close to two million people have walked through these doors over the past 12 years."

Something for everyone

Featuring hip hop, pop, alternative, and rock tracks, the HooDoo accommodates pretty much everybody. No group is too large, and it's always available for parties of any size. 

The ownership group also handles the ever-hip Aurora nightclub, so they know what they're doing. The interior is Rocky Mountain chic, with its rock and wood decor and leather furnishings. 

"It's more rowdy and fun than glitz and glam, but we do our best to offer world class entertainment for this world class ski town."
