Pubs have become the meeting places of choice now that libraries, public parks, and desolate midnight crossroads are all under Prohibition. Enjoy a legal and delicious dalliance with today's Groupon to The Academic Public House. Choose between the following options:

  • For $15, you get $30 worth of pub fare and drink Sunday–Thursday.
  • For $15, you get $30 worth of pub fare and drink on Friday and Saturday.

At The Academic Public House, patrons choose from a huge selection of specialty cocktails, whiskies, and craft beers, and peruse a menu of nibbles made from locally sourced meat and organic cheeses and eggs. Crispy pancetta surfs atop the Modern Pub burger’s grass-fed beef patty ($14), and the blackened chicken sandwich’s brioche bun hoists Maple Hill Farms free-run organic chicken, BC farmstead cheddar, and veggies ($14). Reasoning with the Angry mussels ($12) requires a cool head, acquaintance with Robert’s Rules of Order, and an appreciation for thai coconut curry, ginger, and basil. Modern twists settle themselves in brunch favourites such as short-rib hash ($14) and late-night treats.

The restaurant’s wooden walls and leather banquettes receive a warm glow from light columns and contemporary fixtures. Weekly events such as Wednesday's Rock Never Dies supplies ears with classic covers. UFC, NHL, and NFL games reveal themselves on television screens, and amateur matches take form in foosball, pool, and synapse-stretching trivia.

Good food and excellent service.

Excellent food, prices, and service. Worth going back to without a groupon, something I would rarely do.
