About the Business
Six Acres is a cozy brick lined nook to gather over tasty food and drink. We’ve been welcoming guests to our little spot for over 8 years, and we’ve loved being a part of the rebirth of Gastown.
We love welcoming old school regulars and those exploring Gastown for the first time to hang out in the oldest brick building in Vancouver. Enjoy the ever-changing beer taps offering the very best in local craft brew. Or sample a wide selection of bottled beer from near and far. We also have a delightful and thoughtful list of cocktails, whiskey and wine.
Our home-style comfort food is super delicious and made with local and sustainable ingredients whenever possible. From a comforting mac and cheese or poutine to seasonal salads and snacks for sharing, Six Acres is a great spot to enjoy food and drink in a friendly, laid back atmosphere.
Many folks wonder about our name and where it came from. Gastown is a six acre parcel of land, named after Gassy Jack who’s booze shack attracted many newcomers in the late 19th century. This little settlement that grew up around Gassy’s saloon eventually became Vancouver. We love being a part of the long tradition of eating, drinking and being merry in Gastown, a neighbourhood that has visible history and roots in a city that is ever changing.
