    Drink deals and ski lodge decor. Pop by Wednesdays for a $12 pitcher (share it with a friend) or Fridays for $3.50 high balls. Plus they have a killer Happy Hour from 3:30-5:30pm.

  • Ouisi Bistro

    A gem with Cajun-style food + drink specials in a casual-yet-classy environment. Get an $11 burger and brew, $5.75 double martini, or a $13.75 bourbon, scotch, and beer, depending on the day.

  • Army and Navy Air Force Canteens

    By Vancouver Is Awesome

    A Vancouver classic. Sure, they can be dark and a bit dingy, but walk into any Legion and you'll be guaranteed one of the cheapest drinks in the city.

  • Café Crepe

    By Vancouver Is Awesome

    A pre-party hot spot on Granville and on Robson, they feature an impressive selection of cheap cocktails and beers before you hit a show at the Commodore or venture into a club.

  • Relish

    By Vancouver Is Awesome

    Instead of forcing you to be a sleuth your way to the drink deals, they put them front and centre. On top of their $4 craft beer every day you can get $4 wine and high balls, depending on the day.

  • The King's Head

    By Vancouver Is Awesome

    A Kitsilano classic. Chalk-full of university students and yuppies alike, They feature $14 pitchers of local craft beer and brunch features $4.50 mimosas and $4 caesars, among other deals.

  • The Cambie

    By Vancouver Is Awesome

    Famous or infamous, depending who you ask, it's happening every single night. Never pay more than $5 for a drink here. Beer deals run up to $4.25, $4 daily shooters, and $4.25 cocktails.

  • Brown's Social House

    By Vancouver Is Awesome

    Any day of the week they'll hand you a beer, wine, or “Social Soda” for $4. Add in discounts that vary from $2 off mojitos (Mondays) to $4 highballs on Thursdays, and you're set.

  • Pub 340

    By Vancouver Is Awesome

    Cheap drinks and a room full of pinball machines! Throw in one of the city's best karaoke nights and daily $3.75 beers and $5 jager bombs aren't the only reason to drop by.
