The staff is now too plastic. Guess new management, as so many new staff with their own colored t-shirts. Where is the old uniform and the honest caring attitude. Where is the old staff. This used to be my favorite hangout with friends in Vancouver but my last visit leaves me so cold. Not sure if I will be back.... More

Bartenders are really friendly. Especially Scotty. Food is decent and fairly priced. It's a little to dark even during the day. Patio is nice as well

Opted for the Half Beef Dip (2) with fries, a Half Clubhouse and a regular priced J Burger each with a kale caesar. The beef and clubhouse were... More

Awesome lunch, great staff, laid-back atmosphere :-) I found this place years ago, and occasionally visit when I'm in Vancouver. Now that I've relocated to Vancouver, it has now become a frequent lunch stop for me while I work away on my laptop. There are always people (always a good sign) eating, and everyone is super friendly. The $6 lunch... More

Although it might appear a bit dark as you walk in for dinner (your eyes need to adjust, bit too dark maybe), the service was top-notch, eager and friendly, nice varied menu with different pub choices; try the flatbread pizza - a nice change from regular pizza. I had the meat-lovers. :) Lots of local brew choices, so many that... More

Having a beer in the evening in a Canadian city is not that easy. People seem to go to a restaurant and then to a club (or home?) Quite different from many places in Europe. This gay bar appeared to be almost the only place in Davie to have a beer without having to eat. Nice ambiance and crowd too!... More

Fish and chips are not great. Fish is taste free and greasy. Chips are limp and also have no taste. Server was very slow. Request malt vinegar for my chips, but it never arrived. Server was more focused on a large group next to me and ignored the solo diner (me). Probably great for drinks, but find somewhere else for... More

Staying in Davie Village

Neighbourhood Profile
Davie Village
Davie Village is the vital LGBTQ heart of Vancouver. It is the only like area in the world to have a permanent four-way rainbow crosswalk, to symbolise the city's solidarity with many of the businesses, ranging from bars to bookstores, that keep the area vibrant. By day, it is a people-watching stop, with fantastic boutique cafes, but at night is when it really shines, humming with neon lights and nightclub music inside many of the hip and trendy bars and dance halls. The area is diverse and welcoming, and its supportive community makes for a tight-knit group of independent and creative shops.
