Introducing The Ballyhoo Public House
The Northeast corner of Burrard and Smithe in Vancouver has long been the go-to Cinema District destination for locals, movie fans, and thirsty visitors. We are pleased to keep that tradition alive as we prepare to open the doors of The Ballyhoo Public House.
The building at 888 Burrard St. has a storied history, having served as a gas station, auto dealership, all-night diner, and neighbourhood watering hole. The ongoing renovations have built on the past while adding a host of updates and upgrades to the weathered soul of the iconic 80-year-old building.
In reimagining the snug room, designer Ricky Alvarez has drawn inspiration from 70s NYC bars, dressed up with the vital modern conveniences. Find a spot at the bar for a quick drink before the show, a curbside seat to take in the street life, or a hidden corner to swap secrets deep into the night.
Patrons can look forward to a thirst-quenching menu of local craft beers and a polished cocktail program, while the menu created by Chef Alvin Pillay will feature comforting favourites alongside some unexpected twists. The Ballyhoo Public House will also be offering a weekend brunch menu and fresh-squeezed juice program for early risers and late-night revivers.
