What a fun place. Close to Gastown, this bar is huge and it has a very extensive beer menu. The food is high quality “pub food” with burgers, and lots of sharing plates. We had the cheese platter, and it was very yummy.

I thoroughly enjoyed every delicious drop of beer in this super little bar. I watched the trains trundle by, chatted to my loved ones and enjoyed excellent service. It’s well worth a visit.

Excellent selection of craft beer. Spacious interior and back windows looking over the passing trains. We visited on Saturday and the kitchen was closed until 5:00 but we had a great time hanging out until it opened.

We discovered the Alibi Room a little off the beaten path of the touristy section of Gastown. 40 craft beers on tap. The food is locally sourced and delicious. The chef/ owner changes the menu based on availability of ingredients so menu items change often....More

A visit to Gastown is like turning back the clock and
stepping into a bygone era. With the distinction of
being Vancouver's oldest neighborhood, the many
plaques that stud the cobbled streets of Gastown tell
the story of its colorful past, giving Vancouver's
history a more lively presence here than anywhere
else. Having been originally founded around a popular
worker's saloon, it's no wonder that today some of
