I made frequent visits to this place while visiting Vancouver, and I have to say this place stands tall compared to any other place in that city, both with respect to drinks and food. Already miss it a lot.

Is a huge chain pub. It's got lots of screens, a big beer selection, a good atmosphere, and pretty mediocre food. It's very nice to sit out on the patio on a sunny day and watch the world go by.

We had a drink & appy with another couple. Great décor, but a tad noisy. Would like to try a dinner there sometimes. Fun place.
