NileGuide Expert tip:
Sit at the bar on one of the 25 best bar stools in Vancouver.
Tightly nestled in Vancouver's historical Gastown, the Pourhouse oozes warmth, exquisite design and a buzzing atmosphere; all of which set a perfect platter to serve sumptuous food and creative cocktails. Lovely vintage pieces of furniture in the bar area compliment the reclaimed wood used to build the bar where 25 seats are lined up and ready for you to sit down, relax and sip on some of Jay Jones' magical creations - the Gold Fashioned (a twist on the Old Fashioned) is a house favorite. If sitting at the bar isn't your thing, the crisp white table lines will call your name. As you enjoy your surroundings, wet your palate, graze over the well thought out menu and plan your attack. The Carpet Bag Steak is a juicy, grilled AAA piece of Tenderloin served with fresh peppery Arugula, a crispy fried oyster and Boulanger potatoes - complete with sweet caramelized shallots. After you have savored every last bite, tuck in to the Warm Chocolate Cake. It's gooey, decadent and served alongside with cool gelato. Whether you're just going for drinks or to fill the void in your stomach, the Pourhouse's drinks, food, impeccable service and atmosphere will make you want to stay the entire night.
