Having a reputation for being one of Canada’s most beautiful, greenest major cities doesn't mean finding a Winnipeg hookup is any easier. We love all the green spaces here but when we think beautiful, we think of all the sexy people here. The Winnipeg hookup apps and sites are bursting with hotties, and that’s not even to mention the bar scene.
It’s a fact, Winnipeg is overflowing with beautiful people. Unfortunately, it’s not always easy to connect with them, especially when you’re just looking to get laid. Hookup apps and sites can be tricky to use, particularly with so many that are just scams. The nightlife in Winnipeg is, of course, great, but finding reliable hookup bars can be hard work.
We’re here to make it all a little bit easier. With the help of locals, we’ve compiled the following list of Winnipeg hookup sites, apps and bars. These are the best of the best, whether you’re in Charleswood or Elmwood. Winnipeg has almost 750,000 people; you shouldn’t have to work to meet single ones (this isn’t Culross, after all).

Getting laid shouldn’t be a challenge. Sexy singles are everywhere. More specifically, they’re on these Winnipeg hookup apps, sites and bars.
Whether you like country music or not, if you like sexy girls, this is the place to be. It’s always party central at Cowboys Roadhouse because it’s full of sexy girls every Saturday night. Why is it so popular? Well, this nightclub has had the likes of Emerson Drive, the Black Eyed Peas, 3 Days Grace, Aaron Pritchett and Doc Walker grace its stage.
Even without a major recording artist in the house, this is the place to be on Saturday (ladies night). All girls receive free entry before 11 p.m., so the ladies always flock here. Plan to hit Cowboys Roadhouse at around 10 p.m. Not only will you avoid the crowds, but you’ll also have first dibs on chatting up the girls who show up for ladies night.
Over half of all hookups are starting online these days. If you're not using at least one app or site to meet girls you're really missing out. Out of all the options out there we've found Adult FriendFinder to be the absolute best hookup app in Winnipeg, especially for single guys. Tinder is still decent but AFF has been delivering the best results.
Most guys out there are going to get their best hookup results on AFF, especially compared to the other sites out there!
We've spent the time to test out and review over 100 different hookup apps and AFF is the current leader. It has a ton of local users, is completely focused on hookups, and is really easy to use.
A lot of guys use Tinder but it really isn't a great option unless you're in the top 10% of looks. If you're like us and can't make that claim AFF tends to work a lot better.
Too many hookups start online for you to ignore it. Check them out with their free trial link below and see why it's become so popular around town. It's a lot better than anything else out there right now if you just want something casual.
If you’ve given all the above suggestions a try, you may want a few additional options. Here are some sites, apps and bars to check out for more hookups in Winnipeg.
There aren’t many places like the Amsterdam Tea Room, located in the Exchange District. This restaurant and tearoom might not seem like a great place to get hookups in, but it’ll surprise you. Like the liquor in their tea cocktails, the sexy backdrop and seductive atmosphere may sneak up on you.
Whether you come with someone or come alone, you’ll love the Amsterdam. We recommend bringing a date here – maybe someone you met on Cougar Life. You can get Dutch-inspired meals, drink unique cocktails and listen to live music on the weekends. It’s a perfect place to make a fantastic first impression.
In the Exchange District, you’ll find King’s Head, a local pub that has grown into a Winnipeg institution. From humble beginnings, this popular hangout has become one of the best places to drink in the city. With a huge rotating list of draft beers and ample space to spread out, King’s Head brings in a crowd.
People come to this pub for live music, to watch a game or simply to drink on the spacious patio. The common denominator is a good time, which is all but guaranteed at King’s Head. It’s this feel-good vibe that makes this one of our favourite Winnipeg hookup bars. When everyone is enjoying themselves, anything can happen.
Sometimes the most unassuming spots are the most fun. Shannon’s Irish Pub & Eatery is your standard pub, nothing more, nothing less. Found on Carlton Street, south of downtown, Shannon’s is a true Irish pub. That means there’s always frothy beer, fried foods and live music on hand.
For some reason, when people get a few beers in them, they want to sing. And boy do they sing here. Whether it’s a karaoke night, open mic or a full band, Shannon’s upholds the Irish musical tradition. There’s nothing pretentious or stuffy about Shannon’s, which is why we come down when we’re looking for women seeking men in Winnipeg. You should too.
The Forth Projects is a unique Winnipeg collective, mixing a coffeeshop with a cocktail bar and community space. This is an inclusive venue, welcome to everyone, with chill vibes and a sociable crowd. The Forth Bar is located in the basement and offers one of the best cocktail experiences in the city.
We believe it's a great place for guys to get laid in Winnipeg, why? Because the bar is a totally cozy and welcoming place, great for dates or meet-ups. There is also a super romantic rooftop patio for getting to know someone better if you're looking to find a more discreet hookup. And then there’s the fact that Forth does everything – coffee, cocktails, food – to perfection. You won’t be disappointed here.
If you want to have a good time partying with single girls, look no further than Winnipeg nightclubs. Here are the ones we highly recommend:
FOOTW3RK, Winnipeg's newest dance club, is always a fun place to be. Described as a “fresh, modern club with a throwback vibe,” FOOTW3RK’s focus is always on music and sound quality.
Located in the heart of the Exchange District, you’ll often find some of the best known electronic artists spinning tunes here. While you can expect to pay a cover if a specialty DJ is in the house, there’s no cover otherwise. With lots of room to dance, the ladies flock here to show off their moves and enjoy delicious and decently-priced drinks.
The club’s ’80s/’90s night is always popular as are other theme nights. Drop-in on a Friday or Saturday night and get your groove on with some sexy, single Winnipeg girls.
Though it only opened in 2010, The Grove Pub & Restaurant seems like it’s been around forever. You’ll know what we mean as soon as you walk in. There’s something about this neighborhood pub that feels timeless.
In terms of Winnipeg hookup bars, The Grove stands out because of its laidback atmosphere. Created in the tradition of British “local” bars, this pub is essentially a neighborhood bar for the entire city. It certainly draws in a crowd like it were. With an ever-changing food menu and plentiful beers and cocktails, there’s something for everyone here.
Need a few more suggestions for places to meet girls in our fair city? Here are some spots you also can't miss!
We know you’ll love Little Sister Coffee Maker. Not only does it offer a variety of coffee beverages and delicious pastries, but it also serves beer and wine as well.
This cafe, which has two locations in Winnipeg, is all about being social. Whether you head to Osborne Street or River Avenue, you can enjoy the warm and cozy atmosphere while chatting with fellow singles. Ideal for studying or working, this cafe is also great for socializing.
A great time to do that at the Osborne cafe is during happy hour, held Monday to Friday from 4-7 p.m. With $1 off pints of beer and wine by the glass, it’s not expensive to buy that cute girl you spotted a drink.
If you like large gyms with lots of equipment and space to do your own thing, then North Star Fitness is a great fit for you. You can strike up a conversation with a hottie on a nearby elliptical. Or you can offer to spot for a fit, female powerlifter.
If you’re not comfortable approaching girls you don’t know, then try out the group cross-training sessions. Not only will you get an amazing workout, but you’ll also get a chance to talk with all of the hot, fit girls in your group.
And, because the group training sessions are all about holding each other accountable and cheering each other on, you’ll develop friendships with your group members in no time. And that makes it easy to get to know the girls without seeming like a creep.
Open weekdays until 7:30 or 8:30 p.m., the late afternoons and evenings are popular with single girls, so why not get your sweat on then too?
To those who don't believe in old-school hookups, Tinder has come to save the day.
Maybe you’re studying at the University of Winnipeg or the Université de Saint-Boniface. Maybe you’re just a 20-something with disposable income and a gym membership. Whatever your situation, there’s a good chance that Tinder is your favourite Winnipeg hookup app. And for good reason.
Few apps are more dependable when it comes to arranging hookups between young, attractive Winnipegians. For people 18-28, Tinder is a non-stop cycle of sexy Winnipeg hookups. The app is designed to focus mostly on pictures, so the better you look, the better you do. It’s all pretty simple and straightforward.
Unfortunately, for many of us, that means Tinder is almost useless, even if you know all the tricks wehn talking to girls online. If you’ve hit your 30s or you’re not in the top 10% of looks, you’ll probably not enjoy it much. There’s a reason so many Millennials have tried the app and moved on. Guys need to possess a six-pack or killer dimples to get much attention.
Fortunately, there are some really great places to meet a Winnipeg MILF outside of this app. Check them out and actually get some results.
This is in part because women on Tinder get so much attention. As long as you’re a woman in the top 50% of looks, you’ll do fine on here. The hottest women are so bombarded by thirsty men, they don’t even use the app to meet people. They bask in the glow of the non-stop compliments and ignore meet-up requests.
These days, Tinder is trying to focus more on being an app for relationships. That’s nice, but it will always be a hookup app first and foremost. If you’re good enough looking, you won’t need any other of the top Winnipeg dating sites. At least, until you age out of it.
Now that we've gone over the best options for finding Winnipeg hookups you need to plan out how you're going to spend your nights. Use the map below to planning out your dating strategy and ensure that you're not wasting any time. Hit a few different places each night and get solid results.
