About The Portside Pub


Located in Vancouver, British Columbia, the Portside Pub is Gastown’s newest watering hole and live music venue. The historic, three-level, Portside Pub located at 7 Alexander Street has been built with the traditional east coast pub culture as its inspiration. The result: a comfortable and affordable place for people to gather and enjoy good music and a great pint.

Portside is the latest undertaking by entrepreneur Mark Brand, owner of Save On Meats. In renovating the old Post Modern space, Brand set out to celebrate the beauty of the original historic Gastown building. Sandblasted walls and old exposed brick and timbers are juxtaposed with some of the latest technology in beer drinking. One of only a few medium sized venues in the city, Brand hopes it will be a new hub for the local music scene.

Originally from the east coast, Brand grew up with a strong pub culture which he feels is lacking in Vancouver. By bringing in long-time friend and colleague Andrew Flynn as general manager, he hopes to change the scene. A Newfoundlander, with a 15-year background in bartending from Killarney, Ireland, Flynn knows what real pub culture is all about.

“Pubs are a connecting place for people within a community. Our vision is to make Portside the friendliest pub in Vancouver, where anyone and everyone feels at home. Simply put, Portside will be all about craft beer, local music, and a great atmosphere,” says owner Mark Brand.
