The Joys Of Beer & Train-Watching At The Alibi Room’s Table 11

IMG_9743

A long time ago we posted a reader’s poll listing what we considered to be the top five restaurant tables in Vancouver. We received so much in the way of reader feedback – both positive and negative that we’ve decided to shine a brighter light on the subject, one excellent table at a time. You’ll find more great tables here.

This one is kind of a no-brainer. There are many good tables to be had at this beer-focused institution, but #11 – a window deuce – is the absolute best of the bunch. It suffers one major Achilles’ heel, however, and that is its unfortunate distance from the kitchen, the front door, and the bar. It’s a bit of a parade getting to and from, so best sit tight, take another sip and stare out of the window. Which is exactly the point. The first time I ever set foot in the Alibi Room – this was many years ago – I sat at #11. A few beers in I was nice and buzzed, not noticing that there were trains just outside the window until they started moving with a sudden clang! A gooder in any weather with occasionally sweet sunset vibes.

Breezy, Palapa-Topped Table #31 At Yaletown’s New ‘Fayuca’

Not only is it the only one of its kind in the restaurant but it's also right in the thick of it with sight lines to the patio, lounge and front door.

Seeing Everything From Lucky Taco’s Unique Table 31 In Kitsilano

When it’s not sunny or otherwise gorgeous out the action at Kitsilano’s Lucky Taco is anchored by the bar and the tables closest to it. When it’s nice out, however, it’s all about the patio. And yet neither of those sections of the restaurant – now enjoying its second summer – offers up the best seat in the house.

Table #30 is where you can curl up with your beer and deep fried sour pork ribs and spy not only on the bar, your table neighbours and the kitchen pass but also on the world going by beyond the glass.
