They have something for everyone, whether you want to cool down in the hot weather with a frozen peach Bellini or warm up in the winter with an Irish coffee.
It’s all served in our welcoming Pub atmosphere, where you can sip a cocktail on the patio, grab a pint and play pool at one of our tables, or relax and catch up with friends.

Thirsty Lion brought a burger between deep-fried mac and cheese for burger week. You can grip it if you want the classic satisfaction of preparing to unhinge your jaw and take a bite of this solid, massive, true-to-photo burger (unlike certain places, like my dig at Kyu Bistro experience).
It was delicious, and the burger was satisfying in all the ways that burger patties should be: generously portioned, juicy, flavorful, and not too salty for me. The mac and cheese tasted authentic, so it was an enjoyable experience! The onion rings are not overly greasy and remain crunchy! The service was fantastic, and the ladies were highly attentive and prompt! PUB vibes are chill. The staff is friendly and helpful—excellent pitcher selection in the draft. So, Thirsty Lion Tavern is one of the best bars Winnipeg has to offer you. If you are in the city, we highly recommend visiting this bar at least once. Go with your family, friends, or loved ones for a memorable and fun time.
