Designed to cater to sailors, fishermen and the families who made their living off of the sea, maritime pubs are decidedly friendly. Portside’s management is proud of where they came from – the East Coast of Canada. There they grew up surrounded by establishments laden with wood, rope and more wood. As such, the goal with the Portside Pub is to be the friendliest bar in Vancouver. Great beer, delicious cocktails, friendly staff, comforting food, fresh oysters, good music, fine people.
