Westside Vancouver Whiskey Bars
Vancouver Westside real estate is home to some of the wealthiest residents and businesses in the city. West End businesses are used to catering to somewhat particular patrons, especially those with pristine palates. With so many high end restaurants and bars in the area, there is no shortage of options for West Vancouver residents and visitors looking to enjoy a drink in the city. But what do you do if you’re a whiskey lover? Wine lists are expected to be impressive at upscale establishments, but what about the whiskey? Don’t worry, Whiskey connoisseurs, the West End has some great spots for you to fill your cup and warm your belly.
An Impressive Selection at Shebeen Whiskey House
Located in Vancouver’s West End, Shebeen Whiskey House is a true Whiskey bar that offers single malt and malt blends to thirsty visitors of discerning tastes. The Whiskey house is located between the Irish heather and other Irish snugs, but has something that the local competition does not have: the largest selection of Whiskey in Vancouver’s West End. With a strong Irish feel and friendly staff, the Shebeen Whiskey house is a great way to experience new flavours and malts. Knowledgeable staff can guide you through your tasting, even if you’re an amateur who knows little about the gift of drink. This spot only seats 60 people, which makes getting a table somewhat of a challenge. The Whiskey house however is a perfect place for a private event, or your next guys’ night out.
Have One Poured at the Pourhouse Restaurant
Located in Gastown, the Pourhouse serves a variety of whiskey, and whiskey inspired cocktails. This local favourite is known for its good food and impressive drink list. The service and decor are equally impressive, and the interior boasts a friendly and rustic charm. Located just southeast of Gastown’s iconic steam clock, this establishment makes its home in a one hundred year old heritage building. The focus is on quality at the Pourhouse, and the Whiskey is no exception. From Irish to American, single malt to blended, a number of fine Whiskeys grace the drink menu at the Pourhouse.
Wet Your Whistle At Johnnie Fox’s Irish Snug
Johnnie Fox’s is a true Irish-feeling bar, right here in Vancouver. Although the majority of the Whiskey served here is either Irish or Scottish, there is a good variety available. Friendly and attentive staff are an asset to this snug, but are somewhat scarce in numbers. If you visit on a busy evening expect to wait a while for your plate or glass to reach your table, but know that you’re in good hands at Johnnie Fox’s.
Sunset Whiskey Bar Pleases Its Patrons
With 50 different Whiskeys on the menu, Sunset is a great spot to check out when you’re craving a fine Whiskey, or itching to try a new blend. The bar is fresh and clean to the eye, and filled with many large televisions. It’s a great spot to come for both food and drink, and will please Whiskey connoisseurs and foodies alike.
Vancouver’s West End is filled with quality restaurants and bars. Some have more to offer finer palettes than others, but there are plenty of quality establishments to discover among the masses.
