A great question! The fact is ‘World Crawl Whistler’ is actually a different experience than all the others that operate in the same area, because we brought a Global Crawl tradition to the City. The difference is that all the others only offer the ‘hosted walk-in’ service to the venues, or are already tight knit group simply out on the town, where we take great pride in the fact that WE throw the party, and WE PARTY WITH YOU! We staff sometimes as many as 10 guides, compared to the others 1 or 2, whose sole purpose is to break the ice with the other crawlers and get the party started. At ‘World Crawl Whistler’ we put on the party, not get you into other peoples parties. But of course, we do that too!
A ‘hosted walk – in’ is a popular service in Whistler that can cost a great deal of money. It is when a host or promoter for a venue meets you outside, and for a hefty price on top of the cover charge, walks you in. This, in essence, is what the other Crawl style companies provide in the area. A single guide who hustles you in and waits to do it again at the next spot. It can be a great experience, but not what we offer. Don’t be fooled, many of these other companies are Whistler. style promoters dressing up as a tour. These are unlike us in the sense that we were trained in Australia and Europe and have brought a culture that is less about the venues and more about YOU, and getting YOUR party on! Don’t believe us? Compare the reviews! 😉
We do not own or control any of the bars, clubs, or nightclubs that we go to… we simply work with their management teams to make our “crawls” in their venues possible. The decision to allow us into their venues depends on many factors, none of which we can control in any way. Most of the time the venues inform us of necessary schedule changes months/weeks in advance. However, sometimes it can be the day before…and yes, sometimes when we arrive!
*All Venues, Scheduled Arrival/Departure times, and Offers are subject to change*
According to British Columbia, Provincial laws, you must be 19 years of age or older.
The average age of people on the crawls is about 30. That being said we have had daughter, mother, grandmother combos dominating flip-cup tournaments!
YES! We’re sure you would love it! As long as you’re ready to meet people, enjoy the establishments we attend and spread good energy.
Nope, it’s all walking distance.
The longest walk we have ever had is a ten minute slow walk. Most clubs are closer together though. The crawl lasts at least 5 hours. You be the judge.
No shorts. No Caps. No Sandals. No tank tops.
Gentlemen: No dirty running shoes; some clubs have issues with white running shoes or shell toes, but a nice pair of chucks is usually okay. We recommend a collar. Jeans are ok as long as they have no rips.
Ladies: Look nice No flip-flops but nice sandals are permitted for girls if they strap the whole foot.
Dress code is usually enforced at the last two venues of the night. They are a little bit more relaxed with our group. If you are borderline, they will look at you as a whole (and your level of intoxication) to make a decision. Better safe than sorry.
The crawl starts at 7pm. The odd time we will change the start time, but very rarely.
No. Keep in mind though, if you miss parts of the crawl, you’re missing out on what you paid for. We usually feed you within the first 60 minutes of the crawl. If you miss that, then you are out of luck. We reccommend that you arrive between 6:00 and 6:30.
We are usually there for about 50 minutes. Don’t worry about calling us at 7:10pm to tell us you are ten minutes behind. 🙂
You can. Though a lot of the fun, fun, fun stuff happens at the start of the night. We are happy to work something out for you. Just give us a call. 604.722.2633.
We’re pretty good about working things out for you. Just ask us and we’ll see what we can do. Keep in mind, your ticket is access to the venues, and we don’t make the food – they provide the treats, but if it’s not ok for you, and the venue can make it, we’re happy to arrange it for you.
Typically it’s nachos and pizza, though we’ll switch it up. We often will get a giant platter of nachos for every two or three people on the crawl. If you need more, don’t hesitate to ask.
Yes. 95% of the time. Sometimes (if a venue has a concert or special event) it becomes harder to return and places are always subject to capacity.
No. The crawl as a group skips the line together. If you arrive 30 minutes after everyone from the crawl has already gotten in, you will have to wait in line… You will NOT have to pay cover. If you’re 5 minutes late, that’s not a big deal usually, but it’s up to bouncers at the bar, not us.
Read your ticket please. It’s written on your ticket. If you made a phone booking and are on the will-call list call or text 604-722-2633 or 416-832-4680 to find out.
To reserve tickets, you must put a deposit of at least one ticket down. If you purchase your tickets online and send us an email explaining that you would like us to set aside another 5 tickets, we’re happy to do that, provided you confirm you still need them prior to the crawl.
yes. At BG Urban Grill. WE ARE NOT LONGER OPERATING AT GARFINKELS. Don’t be fooled.
