Like a box of fine china or a man covered in ants, cocktails just beg to be shaken. Stir up local nightlife with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of bar eats and libations at The Factory, located on Granville Street.
At The Factory, rock 'n' roll-styled décor sets a lively scene for a meal of classic bar fare and an extensive list of cocktails, shooters, and beer. Small plate starters such as pierogi with chipotle mayo, sour cream, bacon, and green onions ($5.95) and a full pound of breaded chicken wings ($5.95) prevent taste bud insurrection before the meal arrives. Entrees include the Santa Fe sandwich, a chicken burger with avocado, mango salsa, and fries ($5.95), and the house specialty, the Anaconda ($9.95)—an unholy hybrid of BLT, cheeseburger, and grilled cheese sandwichcraft threatening to encircle, squeeze, and devour doctor's notes in one fell swoop. Beer arrives at thirsty tables from the tap or in bottles, and a staggering list of popular shooters and cocktails satisfies both the sweet tooth and the savoury tonsils.
For patrons who like to show off their impeccable taste in music, or just want to treat fellow diners to endless repetitions of "Yakety Sax," The Factory keeps an all-knowing Internet jukebox open for suggestions until the bar's generous closing time of 2 a.m. Monday through Saturday and 1 a.m. Sunday.
