At three locations across Vancouver, Samz Neighbourhood Pub invites patrons to hobnob with friends and enjoy a menu of classic pub favourites. As TVs broadcast UFC events and Vancouver Canucks’ slumber parties, cooks dish up everything from fish ’n’ chips and chorizo mac ’n’ cheese to pierogies stuffed with cheese and potato. Among more than a dozen burgers and sandwiches, the salmon burger—stacked with tartar sauce, pickles, and onion—stands out as an uncommon option.

Cat & Fiddle Sports Bar & Grill has been delivering upscale pub food for more than 20 years. Its generous menu proffers signature sandwiches, such as Cat’s pulled-pork sandwich—made from oven-roasted pork sauced with Jameson’s and Guinness and topped with frizzled onions—to pub classics, including the Team Platter, a sampler loaded up with hot wings, dry ribs, and potato skins, to name a few. Friday and Saturday nights, a live DJ fills the nightclub area with bumping beats while patrons dance on the spacious dance floors.

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.

In the dining room, the rhythmic pounding of a bodhrán hand drum mingles with the joyful melodies of a tin flute, flooding every inch of the space with an ebullience punctuated by onlookers’ clapping hands and tapping feet. The diners have left the feasts spread across their tables mostly untouched, their attention glued to the band in the midst of their lively song. Such moments aren't a rarity at Donegal's Irish House, but are an almost nightly occurrence at the jovial eatery that brings locals together to make new friends and share in internationally inspired meals.

Champions of fostering an atmosphere of community and friendship, the affable staff goes out of its way to make guests feel welcome, thanks to attentive service and an ever-changing calendar of events that keep inviting guests back. On select evenings, patrons can convene at Donegal's to watch a Canucks game or to see local bands. As guests chat and mingle in the dining room, the kitchen buzzes with chefs concocting Irish standards such as shepherd's pie and international cuisine that includes perogies and sausage, jambalaya, and butter chicken. Donegal's signature dish remains the whopping blarney stone burger, a 7.5-pound charbroiled Canadian beef patty that gets its eater a commemorative T-shirt and a place on the wall of fame if it's eaten within two hours with no help. Unsuccessful competitors, meanwhile, find their snapshot displayed on the wall of shame, under the most personal entry from their dream journals.

Some things about the Clova Cinema have changed over the years; as it passed from owner to owner, it has been a video-rental shop, a youth centre, and a stage for live performances. But despite its numerous incarnations, the rich red facades, the art-deco decorations, and the bright marquee have remained proudly in place. These features hearken all the way back to the theatre's 1947 opening, when Humphrey Bogart dominated the screen and popcorn was popped in gleaming machines instead of Buick-sized microwaves. Now, the cinema's single screen flickers to life with weekly evening and weekend matinee showings of current releases. The theatre is rife with family touches, from the real butter on the popcorn to Cupcake the dog, who is on hand at matinees to entertain guests before the show and sniff out unsilenced cell phones.

Just past Fleetwood Arms Pub's classic red awning, leather armchairs, wood panelling, and a crackling brick fireplace await loyal regulars, who frequent the eatery as much for its warm, inviting atmosphere as its menu of traditional pub cuisine. As flat-screen televisions broadcast sporting events, servers shuttle fish and chips, burgers, shepherd's pies, and imported draft beers to lacquered wood tables. Throughout the week, the strains of live music and karaoke cut through the pub's standard soundscape of jovial chit-chat and mournful whale song.
