Atlantic Trap and Gill closing with huge auction this weekend

Jul 6 2019, 4:20 am

A popular East Coast-inspired bar is finally closing its doors on Saturday after a nearly 21-year run.

Located at 510 Heritage Drive SW, the Atlantic Trap & Gill Pub first opened in 1998 as The Newfie Tap & Grill.

The story goes that the BC Liquor laws didn’t allow the word ‘tap’ in their name, so they switched the ‘r’ around from Grill to Tap, and settled on their now-iconic name Trap and Gill.

The popular maritime themed-bar has put up their East Coast memorabilia up for auction so customers can have something to remember the bar by before they close down for good. A full list of their memorabilia can be found on their online bidding platform here.
