Downtown Vancouver's The Bottleneck has revealed it's lights out after eight years serving up drinks, eats, DJ sets, and live music on the Granville Strip.
Located at 870 Granville, The Bottleneck launched in February 2012, and is owned and operated by the neighboring Commodore Ballroom.
The Bottleneck offered a farewell message on their social media accounts:
"After 8 years of delicious eats and sweet beats, The Bottleneck will be closing its doors on March 21. Thank you to community, staff, artists, and DJs that shared many great nights with us. Join us on March 18 for the last Flip Vinyl night and March 21 for our final farewell then… watch this space!"
The "modern tavern" inside a restored space offers share plates and mains with a global-American vibe - think burgers and fries, pizzas, perogies, Korean-style wings, a vegan grain bowl, spicy seafood noodle soup, and tuna tacos. From the bar are house special cocktails, wines, domestic and imported beers, and ciders.
Sounds like the Commodore is holding onto the space but flipping it into a new concept, so we'll have to stay tuned to see what's coming next.
