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.
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
NYP Restaurant & Bar's culinary masterminds concoct cuisine ranging from hand-tossed pizzas slathered with homemade sauce to gourmet Angus burgers grilled to customer specifications. Working in tandem with bartenders, the chefs complement each tomato-topped pie or pasta dish with craft cocktails and 20 different signature martinis such as the Tsunami––a surge of coconut rum, vodka, peach schnapps, blue curacao, pineapple juice, and mist. They also serve local craft beers. For some mealtime entertainment, TVs located in the bar and in the restaurant show local sports teams such as the Seahawks and Sounders.
Since filling their first glass with suds more than 30 years ago, the Sandpiper Pub’s affable staff continues to foster a casual atmosphere where White Rock citizens and surrounding communities can congregate for relaxed merrymaking. Out of view of the bustling dining room, Sandpiper’s chefs artfully plate classic British pub fare such as steak-and-kidney pie with homemade gravy and fish 'n' chips assembled in the shape of John Cleese. While the sun makes its daily retreat over the horizon, its brilliant blush spills through the bar’s windows and bathes all in attendance in its golden glow. Amid views of the bay afforded by its location off Marine Drive, a heated, covered patio facilitates scenic alfresco feeds and photo-ops of undercover snowmen masquerading as humans. A weekly calendar of televised sports games and live entertainment—including karaoke on Friday and Saturday nights and weekend DJ-fueled dances—brings customers back to the pub to share in its food and communal vibe.
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.
