Since our social lives have suffered the past few years, we deserve to enjoy the best drinks that our city has to offer with our favourite people… in real life.

Here is a list of some noteworthy spots around Vancouver to catch up with your coworkers, family, or friends.

St. Augustine

Head to St. Augustine if you are looking for a casual spot on Commercial Drive with a large selection of beer. They have 60 taps, many of which are sourced from local microbreweries. St. Augustine values serving high-quality, small-batch beer and rotating selections seasonally.

They keep a few tried and true favourite beers on tap, but if you are in the mood to shake it up there is never a need to have the same beer twice.

If you are bored of the usual suspects on menus around town, St. Augustine should be your next destination.

Moose Down Under has been serving Australian beers and warm hospitality for more than 25 years. They even play Aussie-approved sports like AFL, NRL and cricket live!

If you have some visitors from out of town, Bayside Lounge should definitely be on the list of stops. With a pristine view of the world-famous English Bay, this lounge is sure to impress.

The location is also totally unique, outfitted with a sunken circular bar and a panoramic ocean view. The bar has a well-known craft cocktail list and a west coast comfort food menu that showcases the best of Vancouver. We recommend the Last Word cocktail, which features BC’s favourite periwinkle gin, the beautiful Empress 1908.
