Went here recently with a colleague while on business in Vancouver. Vibe is very 'speak-easy' - and the cocktails they made were excellent. Had the burger w salad and fries - comes medium rare and was very good - would definitely go back and try some other options as they all looked good!

We have been on a quest lately to find the best hamburger in Vancouver and this takes us to many different restaurants with different atmospheres. The Pour house is a lounge dedicated to the art of the perfect cocktail. Ingredients are genuine as are their mixologists, but the best surprise about this lounge is they managed to make the best...

We'd walked by this place in Gastown before, and on a whim decided to try it for dinner. The decor is lovely—warm, heavy fabrics and patterns—our table was cozy. We ordered fantastic cocktails and a squid appie that was PERFECTLY cooked, then shared a steak dish. We were delighted by the food and impressed with the ambience and outstanding service.... More

Pourhouse had been recommended so we arranged to try it out but we were heading to a concert so had to be done by 7:30pm. Tried to make a reservation but no - not on Fridays or Saturdays. Arrived at 5:50pm and was told it was likely a 45 min wait. We decided to chance it. We were a group... More

On a trip to Vancouver recently I needed a casual place to take clients for dinner and settled on the Pourhouse on the recommendation of a local. A really great place for an informal dinner. The servers were outstanding, making suggestions on the menu, discussing how the dishes were prepared, attentive and unobtrusive, yet always on top of things. Food... More

Decided to go and try and various appetizer plates during happy hour. Bread & Butter - This was so so. Thought you might get a bit more bread, but you get 3 triangular shaped 1/2 slices of sourdough and a massive scope of creamed butter. Warm Olives - The olives were warm and quite tasty. There's a sprig of thyme... More

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.
