Where the Unstoppable Keighty Gallagher Likes to Eat and Drink in Vancouver

The Dishes is a repeating Scout column that asks Vancouverites to walk us through a map of their ideal day and night on the town. We’re talking breakfast, lunch, happy hour, dinner and late night cocktails. Tax and tip included.

For our latest edition of The Dishes we ask Keighty Gallagher, founder of Strathcona/Chinatown’s busy Tight Club Athletics, to take us on personal culinary tour of Vancouver…

Tight Club 261 Union Street MAP

Good morning! What’s for brunch?

Hands down, Dock Lunch. It’s the cutest place ever, the service is absolutely wonderful, and the home-style cooking makes me feel like my Mom’s in the kitchen.

Dock Lunch 152 E. 11th Ave. MAP

Where should we meet for coffee/tea?

Hunnybee so I can introduce you to all my friends and neighbours and clients and to eat the best cookies and muffins in the city.

Now we’re hungry again. What’s for lunch?

Harvest, duh! Gabe’s soups keep me alive.

Harvest Community Foods 243 Union St. MAP

Who has you figured out at Happy Hour?

Vancouver does happy hour? Dang, I guess I don’t get off work early enough…


What’s for dinner?

These days I Fresh Prep the shit out of dinner. But…if I’m going out, Bao Bei and Di Beppe are at the top of my list.

Bao Bei Chinese Brasserie 163 Keefer St. MAP
Di Beppe 8 West Cordova St. MAP

Where are you taking us for late night cocktails?

I keep finding myself at the Pac Rim Lobby Bar. The bartenders are so lovely and I’ll often remember the next day that I danced with my arms up and my eyes closed to the sweet serenading house band.
