On October 9th, I attended the opening party celebration In The Village on False Creek.
The location has one of the best views of the city along with two large outdoor patios, one on the main floor and the other upstairs. Inside the bar on the main floor is a stunning centrepiece that features an extensive selection of beer and wine on tap. They even have a lending library full of books which works on an honour system, come by and find a book you like and read while you are eating or drinking or take the book home.
There are over 23 beers on tap along with an extensive selection of beer by the bottle, there is also well over 15 selections of wine on tap as well as an extensive wine list. You can even bring in your own wine bottle and pay the corkage for the privilege.
Proprietor Daniel Frankel was on hand to greet guests to his wonderful restaurant & bar.
Guests mingled over their home-baked Pretzels, Burgers, Fish & Chips and other dishes off their menu while drinking Craft Brews and Wine from their Wine on Tap system.
Tap & Barrel is located at 1 Athletes Way in Vancouver and are open daily for lunch and dinner as well as brunch on weekends. You can find them on twitter @tapandbarrel
