The 309 West Pender Street spot for “food, beer, and the occasional stiff drink” took over the former space of EXP Restaurant + Bar, which closed in June 2018.

The Magnet opened for the first time this week and will be operating Monday to Friday from 4 to 11:30 pm and Saturday and Sunday from noon to 11:30 pm.

This new counter service Gastown haunt doesn’t take reservations, so be sure to plan accordingly, pop by to grab a brew, and welcome them to the neighbourhood.
