Make Your Next Connection at One of These Top Airport Pick-Up Bars in North America

TORONTO, ON -- (Marketwired) -- Jan 20, 2016 -- They say the best way to meet someone is while doing what you love most. And airports can be just the place to find singles following their (and your) passions. So, as we head into the season of romance the experts at, the champions of simple travel search, suggest where to look for that special someone while travelling with their Top Airport Pick-Up Bars in North America. Whether you're into surfers, celebs, cowboys or cowgirls, country musicians, golfers or other types, our list will point you in the right direction for a different kind of airport connection.

Read on for ideas on where to find the ultimate souvenir from your next vacation:

  • Powderhounds: Monk's Grill, Vancouver International Airport, Vancouver, British Columbia - If you're looking to meet a ski bum this winter, one of the best places to do it might just be at YVR. Despite the fact that Vancouver itself doesn't get a lot of snow, it's still home to some of the best skiing and snowboarding in North America, including Cypress Mountain, Grouse Mountain and Mount Seymour. And, of course, Vancouver is also the jumping off point to the great skiing at Whistler Blackcomb. So get yourself to Monk's Grill in the domestic terminal at Vancouver International and see who's sporting ski tags on their jacket. Sometimes black diamonds are a girl's (or guy's) best friend.

  • C-list celeb: Petrossian, Los Angeles International, Los Angeles, California - There's no better place to run into a celebrity than LAX and, while the A-list stars won't be slumming it in an airport bar, who says you won't be able to bag yourself a C or D-list celebrity? If that piques your interest, think about whiling away time before your flight at Petrossian in the Tom Bradley International Terminal. It's a caviar and champagne bar that is just fancy enough to attract a few smaller-tier stars. Order up a glass of bubbly and keep your eyes peeled. Go-to pick up line: Do I know you from somewhere?

  • Cowboy or girl: Montana's Cookhouse Saloon, Calgary International Airport, Calgary, Alberta - Does the thought of meeting someone in a cowboy hat and boots set your pulse racing? Calgary International Airport is a good place to wrangle yourself a keeper, especially during the Calgary Stampede, when you'll likely find yourself in a sea of cowboy hats. Sidle up to the bar at Montana's Cookhouse Saloon on the departures level and see if you can catch someone's eye with a friendly wink.

  • Surfer: Lobby Bar, Orlando International Airport, Orlando, Florida - There's no doubt about it, surfing is an exciting sport, which in turn makes it a sexy one. We wouldn't blame you if you had your sights set on making a love connection with someone who spends their days riding the waves. Cocoa Beach, about 45 minutes from Orlando International Airport, is a popular surfing spot in the U.S. so you might just find yourself a surfer if you spend some time at MCO sipping a drink at Lobby Bar in East Hall. Keep an eye out for anyone who looks like they still have sand in their hair and ask if they've seen the new "Point Break" remake.

  • Country musician: Tootsies Orchid Lounge, Nashville International Airport, Nashville, Tennessee - Country music fans are likely to also harbour crushes on country music's biggest stars. While you might not score a date with Luke Bryan or Carrie Underwood, there's still hope to bag yourself a country crooner. A trip through Nashville International Airport could be your ticket to a date with an up-and-coming country musician. The best place to look is Tootsies Orchid Lounge at Concourse C, before security, where they even have live music. Who knows, you might just make a connection with someone playing a set. The flagship location of Tootsies is known as one of the best country bars in the city.
