After dinner, this bar is a great destination to listen to live music and kick back with drinks in hand. The owner is on the stage singing and greating guests! Very fun place!

Not many places like this to be found - warm, wonderful atmosphere, old style hospitality and a band that absolutely rocks! Discovered this place in March when I last visited Vancouver when it managed to brighten the darkest and rainiest day imaginable. Back again especially for Wednesday Revelry with the best rockabilly / Texas swing going. This evening brought my... More

Such a terrible meal and experience. We went as a small group on a Saturday. They had a live band that was not very good and so loud that no one could hear anyone else at the table. One waitress had the idea as she had foam ear plugs! The food sucked. Steak Frites was so bad. My 'steak' was... More

If you like live music they have some every night. The Buttermilk chicken bites were one of the best appetizers I've ever had. Good atmosphere, fun cocktails, and our server had a great chat with us.

I drop in to the Revel room from time to time, usually on blues night to see the amazing Steve Kozak trio with Roger Brant on bass and Chris Nordquist on drums. Steve is an amazing blues guitar player and singer, as well as being a Maple Blues Award Winner ! Where else can you grab good food, a cold... More

I had a great time catching up with friends and enjoying live music in an intimate setting. The band was accepting music requests and the food and wine pairings were exemplary.

If you love great music in a small venue with an cozy atmosphere this is the place for you. Wednesday night Dennis the owner sings with his rockabilly band. Amazing music. The food is southern classic and well done.

Everything is legit here. The cocktails are great and the service very accommodating. The New Orleans food seemed pretty authentic. There was live music the night we were there - not spectacular but it made the place a bit more lively.

Staying in Gastown

Neighborhood Profile
A visit to Gastown is like turning back the clock and stepping into a bygone era. With the distinction of being Vancouver's oldest neighborhood, the many plaques that stud the cobbled streets of Gastown tell the story of its colorful past, giving Vancouver's history a more lively presence here than anywhere else. Having been originally founded around a popular worker's saloon, it's no wonder that today some of Vancouver's best micro-breweries, creative cocktail joints, and corner bars can be found in this area. Classical charm suffuses its many vintage boutiques and the brick-built structures that an army of creative professionals call home.
