Older established neighbourhood pubs are the way to go. Problem is, random conversation unless it's with the bartender or server doesn't usually happen.

The Cove, which used to be Jeremiah's and Jerry's Cove, on 4th and Alma is a great place. I used to live there from '88 to '91! Great food, great to watch a game and friendly people. I go here every time I visit Vancouver. Can sometimes get loud with UBC students, but, Sunday to Thursday is usually pretty chill. It's only a 15 minute # 7 west away from downtown.

Back in my university days, when I still lived in Vancouver (pre 2005), my friends and I always hit up the Irish Heather.

We also loved going to crap pubs out in the older part of Langley.

Can you imagine drowning AT a KK Rev concert?

  


i'm pretty sure that's how zombies are born.

Try St. Augustine's
Great beer selection and food.

Also a place to chat without loud music etc.

Hmm... looks interesting; sort of like an Alibi Room but in the Commercial Drive area. I will probably check it out.

Yeah, this. People just don't mingle in pubs here, as far as I know. That's more of a club thing - where the music is always going to be loud.

I remember Bimini's on 4th being a mix of a club and pub type thing years ago before it burned down. I haven't been in there since they reopened last year, but it might be worth checking out.

True. I went to Jeremiah's a lot when I was at UBC. Been to the Cove a few times and it's kept up the feel.

If you're looking for a quiet place OP, try the Cheshire Cheese in Kerrisdale. Beer is expensive, but it's definitely a quiet place.

If you are looking for quiet, go to a library. Most pubs are noisy.

Quiet and Pub. Two works that don't go together well.

I go there fairly often, it's a great place.
Oh and it helps having friends who know the owner. :)

I used to go here, too. I grew up in Kerrisdale and went to Point Grey SS which is right across from the CC. Good traditional English-style pub and really good food. It is pricey, for sure.

Another place I used to go to was on Cambie just south of Broadway called the Jolly Alderman. We used to go there after our matches and for our hockey pool meetings.

Checked it out on Friday...
It seems like a pretty decent place (though tables do tend to stick to themselves). I'm sure I'll be trying it out again. One of these weekends coming up I think I'll make my way out to the Cove.

Open your own dig/ lounge and customize it as you want, then invite people :)

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. 17 For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.


Jesus LOVES YOU!
