Brickhouse

Brickhouse | Bar | A time capsule in Strathcona/Chinatown, an area undergoing rapid change (it is soon to be replaced by condos, natch). The Brickhouse is sort of like sitting in your uncle’s rec-room in the ’80s. Think pool, fish tanks, tacky ephemera, an assortment of couches, and a guy named Leo. Click here to look inside.

Usage | “Man, I hope Brickhouse never closes…”
