Gastown’s “Pourhouse” Looking To Open Before The Month Ends


They’re getting real close at Pourhouse on Water Street. Menu tasting for staff went down today and the room is booked for a wine tasting on Tuesday. We’re crossing our fingers for the weekend without getting our hopes up.

  1. The name is “Pourhouse?” Really??? As the province poises to make it a crime to be homeless just in time for Olympic revelry is this name at all appropriate? Sometimes tongue-in-cheek = foot-in-mouth.

  2. You go semantics police person!

    No wonder they call Vancouver “No Fun Town” – sheesh!

    Lattitude in your attitude MissT604.

  3. i was there with the boys (Jay and Chris) the other night having charcuterie and beers – it seriously looks incredible – and the sneak peek at the menu makes me salivate! a return to simple, comfortable and nostalgic dining. congrats boys, i really am routing for you.
