MUGSHOTS - Ottawa's only jail bar
HI-Ottawa's Mugshots Bar is Ottawa's only jail bar! Nestled comfortably in the hostel's unique courtyard that houses the gallows that performed the last public execution in Canada, this place hails people from all over every day of the week. Thirsty? We proudly pour Beau's all Natural Beer, a local, award winning organic brewery from Vankleek Hill, Ontario.
In the winter months, Mugshots moves inside into the former jail chapel - what a wonderful space to house a bar! Check out our weekly and monthly events - hostellers always have free admission!
We sell gourmet Grilled Cheeses from Wednesday to Saturday between 6:00 pm to midnight and we serve Beau's, Muskoka, Kichesippi and Flying Monkeys beer.
