Tavern going in Canada: a national survey of regulars at public drinking establishments.

Author information

  • 1Department of Sociology, Saint Mary's University, Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada.


The results of a national survey of tavern going are reported; special attention is paid to the drinking patterns, reasons for attending, types of places frequented and social characteristics of the "regular" (i.e., the person who usually attends the same establishment and with some frequency). Most Canadians make some use of pubs, but only a few are regulars. Regulars are young, unmarried and heavier than average drinkers. Persons going to taverns, lounges, nightclubs and private clubs differ in social characteristics and these attributes are related to the activities and social functions associated with the various types of public drinking establishments.
