Comfort is key at Knight & Day Restaurant, a mantra evident in the eatery's cuisine, decor, and ambience. Pub favorites––including burgers, seafood platters, wings, and pizzas––emerge from the kitchen to the cozy dining room. Whether seated at plush booths or even at couches surrounding the tables, diners feast their eyes on cherry-wooden wainscoting and columns illuminated by hanging lamps.
The curving three-piece roof that shelters its entrance makes Finnegan's Pub and Grill easy to spot from afar. Through the doors, wooden banisters lead into expansive rooms filled with massive HDTVs, games, and more than 16 types of draft beer. Plates of hearty sandwiches, pizzas, and signature grass-fed and aged Angus beef steaks grace tabletops inside and, during the warmer months, outside on a large patio. Every Friday and Saturday night, DJs spin tunes and live music echoes through the halls like a drinking song stuck in a canyon; sports games and UFC matches are broadcast throughout the week. The bar shares its property with its sister establishment—Phoenix Lounge—an upscale lounge that hosts vibrant dance parties after nightfall.
A place where friends gather to share a drink and a meal, where you can just kick back and feel at home & leave your troubles behind. You might find yourself beside a warm fireplace or having a chin wag with the barkeep.Wherever you find yourself you’ll feel like you’ve just stepped off the plane in the Irish city of Dublin
In Vanilla Room's expansive loft space, night-owls groove to electronica, top-40, and hip-hop tunes and sip premium and top-shelf libations from a full bar. Staff members greet patrons at the main doors and cater to their needs as they meander among exposed slate walls, virtual living-art tables that reflect projected images, potted ferns, and life-sized statues of Jay-Z's pet giraffe. A bartender blends cocktails, highballs, and other drinks with Bacardi rum and Bombay Sapphire gin ($5–$6 each) as well as top-shelf pours of Grey Goose and Roberto Cavalli vodkas ($7-$8 each). Live hosts conduct revelry around nightly shows, which often feature international music artists and celebrities. Guests settle cable-bill disputes via dance fights across a hardwood dance floor, and the club's high-quality sound system emits optimal acoustics amid hanging coloured lights. Move to music, lean on velour-lined walls, and compare disco-ball tattoos on leather benches.
Named after an arm of the Pitt River, Fox’s Reach Pub & Grill nourishes a neighbourly atmosphere, serving a menu of gastropub fare and pouring 10 draft beers in entertainment-drenched confines. Mains include the al forno ribs, a half-rack of baby backs glazed in Rickard’s Red barbecue sauce served with cornbread that doubles as an edible napkin ($10.49). The WTF (which stands for "what the Fox!?") double cheeseburger stacks bacon, ham, onions, mushrooms, a fried egg, an onion ring, and house sauce into an edible Jenga tower ($13.99). For plant-based flavour titillation, the greek pizza piles mediterranean veggies, feta, and garlic olive oil atop a hand-tossed thin crust ($11.99). Beer-battered cod bites ($7.49) pair well with a draft pour from the seasonal drink menu, boasting recent cameos by Okanagan Spring pale ale, Sleeman honey brown, and Queen Elizabeth's hard iced tea.
From its perch alongside the Pitt River, Gillnetter Pub serves up crab cakes, halibut burgers, seafood stew, and PEI mussels that complement a view of the tranquil water, best enjoyed on the open-air patio that hosts revellers all summer long. Winter visitors get a similarly cozy treatment with an enclosed patio complete with a stone fireplace, toasty heaters, and an awning that folds back when the weather allows. Inside, diners feasting on baby back ribs or clam chowder can take in sports on one of several HDTVs or the pub's big screen, with games from the Canucks, Whitecaps, and BC Lions making regular appearances on the screens and in the strange dreams that customers have later that night.
