Above the warm fireplace, a wall of televisions bathes onlookers in the blue glow of four different sports games, eliciting waves of cheers and whoops from an ebullient crowd. In the background, the muted click of billiard balls mixes with animated chatter at the bar to create a merry symphony that lasts late into the night. This is a typical evening at Legends Pub & Restaurant, which fosters a laid-back, welcoming atmosphere for families and sports fans alike. Legends hosts a variety of activities and events throughout the week— game days beckon fans to ogle 20 TVs, and an outdoor patio festooned with hanging flower baskets invites guests to bask in balmy summer breezes. On weekends, live DJs or bands broadcast their sonic creations over an advanced sound system, prompting those in attendance to practice their dance moves with a partner or wig-clad coat rack. The spacious dining room has a separate section reserved for families to nosh on burgers, pizzas, wings, and British pub classics surrounded by burnt orange walls peppered in sports memorabilia.

Amid dark wood, red walls, and the glow of crimson-hued lamps, Scarlet Tapas Lounge’s master chef deftly assembles armies of small plates featuring handcrafted eats forged from fresh ingredients. Tandem diners can snuggle into a candlelit table and synchronize swallowing velocities over a trio of savory tapas, such as the house stuffed jalapeno poppers, brimming with mozzarella and sharp cheddar cheese aged two years to ensure enough maturity to not throw itself at neighbouring patrons during dinner. House-made sweet-potato perogies turn the traditional Slavic dumplings on their pillowy heads, and barbecued rib eye, kimchi, and sriracha aioli join flavourful forces when nestled inside the Korean-style barbecue steak wraps. Goblets of red or white wine keep talk boxes hydrated throughout relaxed meals.

The Charlatan's rich, mahogany ambience complements the smoky, mesquite flavours and applewood-scented entrees that make this local pub one to top the to-do list. Hearty menu items such as the house-pulled pork ($14) assuages whiny bellies, while the chicken pot pie ($13) and mom's meatloaf ($13) satisfy a deeply rooted down-home hunger pangs. Fifteen beers on tap, 12 wines by the glass, and a creative cocktail list cure a homesick soul in one sip, whereas drinking the 911 wing sauce is not recommended unless you've gone and frozen your teeth to the flagpole again.

Oscar's Pub immerses patrons in a casual neighbourhood atmosphere while immersing stomach interiors in hearty pub fare such as wings in 10 sauces ranging from spicy to sweet. Burgers and entrees feature AAA Canadian beef marinated in au jus, as internationally inspired eats such as wonton soup traipse across the menu for a more global experience than slumber parties held by U.N. ambassadors. Ever-changing upcoming events include wings and ribs nights as well as karaoke Sundays, which urge guests to flex their vocal pipes. UFC, European soccer, football, and Canucks games shine down from 11 high-definition wide-screen televisions to illuminate revellers and intimidate french fries into lying still.
