Portside Pub is home to a friendly, comfortable atmosphere, a wide selection of beer, friendly staff, as well as some amazing events like our upcoming New Year’s Eve bash.
Located in the heart of Gastown, the Portside Pub has a rich history that we pride ourselves on. In 1867, a man named John Deighton saw a lack of watering holes and, with that, an opportunity. With the help of some lumbermen, Gassy Jack (as he came to be known), built Globe Saloon, a haven for sailors and fishermen. Today, Portside stands only steps away from where Globe Saloon once stood. Named after Gassy Jack, Gastown emits a boisterous, hospitable spirit that we at Portside Pub reflect.
The historic Portside Pub consists of three-levels and can be found at 7 Alexander Street. Built with traditional East Coast pub culture in mind, we’ve brought you a comfortable, affordable place to enjoy the best music, food, and beer.
24 beers on tap, ranging from local favourites to international brews, along with our highly knowledgeable staff ensure that no matter your preference, we’ll have just the beer for you. We also offer an extensive menu with some of the best food in Vancouver. Don’t miss our East Coast Chowder: the best lobster chowder this side of the Halifax. Or, if you’ve got a sweet tooth, try our award-winning ice cream sandwich: ice cream topped with crispy bacon, Bailey’s Irish whipped cream, and maple syrup between two tasty chocolate cookies.
If you’re looking for a great time and comfortable atmosphere, then Portside Pub is the place for you. Come see us soon, we’ve got a cold beer waiting!
