Ottawa Bourbon Week is proud to have Apt 613 as our media sponsor.
Apartment613 was conceived in October 2008 at the Manx Pub over a few too many pints of beer. A group of eight friends plus a mysterious Colombian were remarking that while Ottawa had an active arts and culture scene, it took the right connections and a bit of work to get plugged in. We decided to do something about it. After three months spent debating whether or not to go with a sans serif font, the official site went live in January 2009. We held our launch party on 6/13 at Raw Sugar Cafe – the first of what we hope will be many more awesome birthday celebrations.
Apartment613 is a volunteer-run not for profit organization. Our main activity is apt613.ca, an award winning blog dedicated to uncovering the best of Ottawa’s arts and culture. All of our editors, photographers and contributors contribute their time and talents for free to help spread the word about all the great events happening in our city.
