A good bar, friendly staff, wide selection of draft beers, good food. Service a little slow at times getting to you for your first order. A lot of locals and regulars lend a warm 'community' feel to the place but, as an infrequent visitor, I've...always felt welcome. Karaoke FRIDAYS 9PM TO 1AM is a big draw, attracting some good solid singers, from young to one gentleman who could be well into his 80s and has a strong, enjoyable singing voice. I have ONLY been on Fridays, so can't speak to the rest of the week, but it's a lively, friendly atmosphere on karaoke night.More

Thank you for your review! We're so glad you enjoy our karaoke nights. Please do try another of our entertainment evenings such as our Wednesday night open Mic where locals take the stage or our Sunday night Band Jam where our guests join the band...More

The Pressbox Pub located inside of Atrium inn Vancouver has very good (above average) food on our recent visit. It has a decent size menu for a pub, good cold beer, and nice atmosphere.

Cold beer well priced. Wife says same for wine. Lovely girl behind the bar working very hard to keep it all happening. Basic menu but quality okay as was the price.

If you are staying at the hotel, there is a food discount of 15%. Mushroom and swiss burger was properly prepared and presented. Beer was served in frosted glasses.

I used to go to his bar a lot and made friends with some of the regulars, etc. But last Saturday, I went in with my friends and it was their "DJ night" except no one was in the entire pub. We decided to have...fun anyway and requested a song be played. The DJ seemed happy and excited to actually have someone paying attention to him. Then the manager came over and started yelling at us about how we weren't allowed to make requests. That was weird in and of itself but the fact that she didn't ask nicely or calmly was pretty strange and unprofessional. She continued to shout at us from the other side of the bar and, due to her completely rude and unprofessional behaviour, we left. Won't be going back there. Other bars in the same neighbourhood give you the same drink deals but without the drama - go elsewhere instead.More

We went here to watch a hockey game and have a couple of beers. The drink prices are good and the food was ok but the manager was very dismissive and unprofessional. She kept disappearing outside to smoke and would come back in smelling strongly...of weed. Seemed very irritable for someone who spent the whole night high! Found the general vibe to be pretty unpleasant as a result, which is too bad because it is a good space and could be a decent bar. As it stands, you are better going a few minutes down the road to the slocan or the brighton.More

Ordered beef tips. Extremely dry and over cooked . Chairs had upholstery peeling off. Wood chipped. Had clam chowder as well. This was good. Waiter was nice enough to split soup for us.

This place is next door to the hotel where we stayed. We got a discount of some kind to eat there. We went in right about 5:00 p.m., which is when they opened. The waitress kinda made us feel like we were an imposition. The...food was very good...wish I could say the same for that waitress.More

We arrive around 6pm on a Monday and there were only two other people in the restaurant. We were helped quickly and the food was delicious. Our waiter was polite and ready to help with suggestions about what to see in Vancouver.

Been to the place before a couple of years back. Prices for food is a bit much but the food is not bad (chicken fingers at least). Beer prices are semi reasonable. Don't know if it was just the time of the night or how...the place was but didn't really like having to go up to the counter to order food when the place seemed well staffed and the place was not busy but oh well. Don't know if I would go again but if you are looking to have a pint and you are in the PNE with nowhere else to go and not wanting to go anywhere else it's not a bad place to hang out.More

I think current Liquor Board regulations allow minors up to a certain time (maybe 6 pm??). You should definitely check with the pub before taking your baby there
