Neighbourhoods value their pubs as a place to socialize, just as they value the ends of their rainbows as a place to find extra parking-meter change. Enjoy camaraderie at close proximity with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of pub fare and drinks at Rebel's Rock Irish Pub in Hamilton.
Rebel’s Rock evokes a traditional Irish county pub, where a cozy atmosphere complements made-from-scratch dishes and a draft-only beer selection. The menu lists three poutine variations, including Dawnes Mess, an Irish interpretation sporting three irish cheeses, Trimelston beef gravy, and a charming brogue ($7). Requisite Irish eats abound, from shepherd's pie ($10) to fish and chips, made with beer-battered North Pacific haddock ($10/5 oz.; $14/10 oz.). The Rebel burger flouts the rules with its combination of a juicy patty and house-made square sausage and its fondness for drag racing ($10).
A true tap house serving only draft beers, the bar serves a menu that includes 20-ounce pints of imports such as Guinness ($6.41) plus premium and domestic brews ($5.53+) such as Rolling Rock pilsner. The pub also plays host to live entertainment events, including musical adaptations of Finnegans Wake staged with balloon animals, open to visitors with no cover charge.
