Vancouverites love their sports. With teams such as the Vancouver Canucks, BC Lions, Vancouver Whitecaps, and Vancouver Canadians to support, sports bars are brimming with people year-round. Here are the best sports bars to check out in Vancouver.
The Village Taphouse says it’s the “best damn place to hang out on the North Shore.” They might be right, as they have 20 beers on tap, indoor and outdoor pool tables, plenty of space, and 17 screens for watching sports. The Village Taphouse also has many daily specials, and an evening and late-night happy hour every day too; this means that you can enjoy watching sports and having a drink without it costing you too much.
The city’s original sports bar, Shark Club Vancouver “redefines sports bar and pub greatness.” The bar and grill’s location is just steps from BC Place and Rogers Arena, which is where most of the sports action happens in Vancouver. Shark Club is popular before, during, and after local sports games and concerts. It has many small television screens, as well as two projectors that each measure 3.66 meters x 2.1 meters (12ft x 7ft).
Score on Davie is primarily known for its crazy caesar creations, which include the signature Canadian drink topped with chicken legs, brownies, onion rings and so much more. But it’s also a popular local hangout and sports bar on Davie Street. It has a large selection of rotating taps and bottles, featuring local and international beers and cider. Their food menu also includes a lot of shareable plates, which are the perfect accompaniment for a sports match.
Located outside of the downtown area, PressBox Pub is a bar underneath the Atrium Inn that’s known for its sports viewing. There are plenty of HD televisions in the PressBox Pub so that “you can feel as though you are sitting in the stadium’s press box while you catch the hockey game, football game, or more.” There are drink specials throughout the week, as well as open mic and karaoke nights.
