Imagine what the queue for a Disneyland seaplane adventure ride might look like, and you’ll probably be picturing something like Bar Charlie. It’s a neighborhood spot with knotted rope light bulbs hanging from the ceiling, a plane propellor anchored behind the bar, and map schematics on the walls. The drinks, which range from an old fashioned with apple brandy and mole bitters to a lemon gin cocktail with rhubarb, are excellent, and the food’s impressive, too. Get the twice-baked loaded poutine potato covered in melted cheese curds, gravy, chives, and bacon.
