Different inside to what waa expected. Friendly staff, happy to find a table more suited to us. Obviously lots of regular customers. A bit of cowboy style would describe the place, but dont let that put you off. Food was good, if a bit plain...More

From the outside one questions if this is a place you want to enter for food. Don’t judge a book by its cover, this place was worth taking a chance. We went for brunch and was pleasantly surprised. The menu was small but the flavor...More

The Yale Saloon was a block from our hotel so we thought we would try it. She ordered a half rack and I a full rack. They were excellent but we had enough let over for another meal. Cowboy beans and yam fries make good...More

Decided on here because it sounded like a fun. It was. Great atmosphere although one of pet hates is country music so I had a hard time blanking that out. Staff were brilliant. Knowledgable, funny and very efficient. The price point for a place like...More

We walked in for a beer after dinner on a Tuesday, looking for live music, and discovered a duo playing rock-blues. It was good to sit and listen, and watch couples dancing most proficiently. The beer was fine, and they had Knob Creek bourbon, so...More

This was our first time visiting the Yale Saloon. As big country music fans, we were excited to check this place out, as we have always enjoyed the atmosphere of a country bar. While we made the most of it, we were definitely disappointed with...More

West End
A hodgepodge of landscapes, the West End combines
verdant gardens and blocky modern architecture, with
Victorian bits and Edwardian bobs in between. It is a
paradise for takeout food, take-away coffee, and
perhaps incongruously, some of Vancouver's most
languid lines of beachfront. English Bay and Sunset
Beach invite swimmers, strollers, and picnic-lovers to
take in dusk settling over the water, or to jog along
