Lots of different spaces inside and out in an elegant and hip setting. Unfortunately beer is primarily Stanley Park which is not great. Not flights, small pours and high tap prices make this a no go for geeks.

Very clean, elegant decor. Light stained wood, nice white upholstered chairs, and clean cut staff. Some might cry hipster. Whatever, I guess. They have a small sidewalk patio as well.

Beer is not the main attraction here by any means, so don’t come expecting anything else. Prices aren’t cheap on the beers either. Settled on a meh beer (Blood Alley Bitter). They do have a nice selection of wine and cocktails, though they’re also not cheap. Food is kind of upscale, gastropub sort of fare.

I don’t know that it’s really fair to slam this place since it should be noted it’s not really a "beer place" and it’s a decent bar and restaurant.

Stopped in to check it out. Great looking place (ignore the latching bathroom doors for multiple occupancy). Tap selection is pitiful, and high prices for sleeves only. Bottle selection is a bit better, but nothing extraordinary, however at insane prices for local craft bombers (~$15 for Fat Tug). Excellent and friendly staff. Not a beer location for Gastown.
