Top stop for a drink.

Good location and good atmosphere. Didn't spend long here but enjoyed it. Staff were lovely and didn't kick me out which is rare. Few beers. Enjoyed them. Would come back.

I traveled to Vancouver with two of my girlfriends; we are in our early twenties, and all if us are in the service industry. Trying to figure out the nightlife in a strange city can be a hit or miss. After trying many different (surprisingly pricy) bars in Gastown, we retreated to downtown Vancouver and upon receiving guidance from the... More

My husband and I stopped in for a drink and a bit on our first day in Vancouver. We sat at the bar and were served by Todd the owner. He was super friendly and extremely helpful in providing info on things to do during our visit. He even printed out some info for us to take. We ended up... More

We participated in the trivia night at Relish gastropub and had a great time. If you like pub quizzes, this is a good one. They have one every Tuesday, 7PM. Good variety of questions, great quizmaster and overall fun atmosphere. The quiz probably got going around 730 and ended around 930, with 5 rounds. They have a variety of beers... More

Stopped in to have a bite to eat before a Christmas party as I used to be a regular back when the place was twice the size. The menu is smaller but everything they do is delicious. The regulars at the bar were the only ones there when we arrived but everyone was friendly and the staff were very commodating.... More

We recently visited Relish for a dinner with a large group of friends for a Stagette. Relish is a smaller pub, but very personal. Our server (Lindsay) was excellent and always had a smile on her face. I was extremely impressed with her service as I inquired about the Tuna Tataki, if it was gluten free or not. She replied...

Went in, greeted promptly and friendly by the nice lady tending bar. Beer special now $4 but who cares cause the glass is big. Salsa tasty, and the patrons having fun. Will be back, often.

It is hidden away - small and a little noisy. Very interesting fresh menu. Service was great - and the value of both food and drinks was amazing given the location in the heart of Vancouver. Was staying at the Wall Centre for a Conference and we were very happy that we stumbled upon this for dinner one night. Drink... More

We brought a newbie up to Vancouver for her first night out thinking we would do a "pub crawl" and we didn't want to leave! Great service, great food, good drink specials. When it's got late it turned into a small safe place to dance and party. The dj was awesome. They poured us this really cool rainbow shot and... More
