We showed you the stunning renderings way back when, and now, we’ve got the real thing for you to feast your eyes on: here’s your sneak peek of CRAFT Beer Market English Bay before it opens.
Dished Vancouver was the first inside the newly renovated restaurant, it’s the former Boathouse Restaurant space, a highly coveted spot in Vancouver’s West End.
Soon, patrons who head to the 1795 Beach Avenue destination can check out the multi-level, 11,000-sq-ft restaurant, complete with a year-round patio with a retractable roof.

This is CRAFT’s second Vancouver location, the first outpost is located in Olympic Village at 85 West 1st Avenue.
Despite offering the Canadian restaurant group’s signature selection of 100+ beers, ciders, and meads, alongside a menu of filling comfort foods, CRAFT’s English Bay spot boasts some company firsts.
The Beach Avenue location’s entrance will feature the brand’s first-ever “bottle shop” where people can purchase reserve craft beers and bottled cocktails to enjoy for dine-in and takeout.
In case you’re wondering, this means you’ll be able to buy beverages like margaritas to-go…winning!
On the first level of the space, there is a more casual 40-seat serverless section where folks can seat themselves and order offerings using an app.
This lower space features a bar complete with 20 taps which will offer a rotating selection of brews from some of our favourite local names.
Guests who venture to the upper level of the eatery will see the large, signature central bar that CRAFT is known for, and they’ll also get a glimpse of that spectacular view of English Bay.
But really, we are most excited about CRAFT’s new patio. This space will open with a retro Volkswagen Van outfitted as a vibrant cocktail bar.
CRAFT Beer Market English Bay will be opening to the public near the end of March, we’ll keep you posted on an exact opening date.
