Vancouver, BC | Remember Family Dinner at mom?s house? Platters of mouthwatering pork tenderloin, succulent beef and perfectly roasted chicken? She always made your favourite grilled vegetable with a side of perfectly seasoned potatoes. You can bring that memory back any night of the week at Pourhouse with Family Style Dinners at The Kitchen Table. Chef J-C Poirier will put together a special, yet simple meal featuring the best of the season for you and your friends and family to enjoy.

Embracing the sublime pleasure of drink, the joy of good food and the comfort of family – Pourhouse is the embodiment of a passion for sharing the simple indulgences of life with friends. Just southeast of the Steam Clock in Gastown, Pourhouse is born of century-old styles of drinking and dining. The 100-year-old building was built in 1910, as home to the Leckie Boot Company – the original structure crafted with Douglas Fir ceilings, supported by large wood pillars, and brick walls. Pourhouse is furnished in antiques of the era – complimented by custom creations. Every piece in Pourhouse has a story. The cornerstone is the 38 ft. bar – lovingly handcrafted from 120 year-old planks of reclaimed Douglas Fir. Entrance and hallway walls are finished with era-inspired textures and gold leaf detailing – no aesthetic left unconsidered.
The cocktails have an old-fashioned soul, in variations both plain and fancy – the catalyst for the entire concept. The wine list gets its inspiration from the turn of the century, and is priced to encourage sharing and discovering. Beers cover the range of tastes and styles – several selections representing the true ale craftsmanship of BC and the Pacific Northwest. Serious about coffee, Pourhouse serves a beautiful local roast, crafted with a handmade Synesso Espresso machine – overall, a focus on quality over quantity, with a particular interest in Whiskey and Whiskey applications to cocktails. The true heart of Bartending is shown through the creation of personalized experiences.
Food is designed with inspired and skillful technique, though born of familiar comforts. Hearty and mouth-watering meals with a sense of familiarity are done in a homemade style using fresh, local and seasonal ingredients.
We look forward to the honour of sharing our appetite for life with you.
Pourhouse embraces a singularly essential part of Vancouver – its own history.
