Excellent food (I had the house-cured salmon and the seared tuna salad on asparagus). Tasty cocktails. DJ on Saturday night.

Good food and well priced. Liked the music. Great service. High ceiling, black walls, chandeliers, bar, booths and tables. Downtown feel - nice menus with fun appies to share. Will definitely return. It has juice!

A visit to Gastown is like turning back the clock and
stepping into a bygone era. With the distinction of
being Vancouver's oldest neighborhood, the many
plaques that stud the cobbled streets of Gastown tell
the story of its colorful past, giving Vancouver's
history a more lively presence here than anywhere
else. Having been originally founded around a popular
