Recommended by our concierge as good for craft beers, and completely exceeded our expectations. I counted 51 craft beers and two ciders on the menu; the staff are incredibly knowledgeable and we were given a tutored guide to what to taste. Amazingly knowledgeable and helpful...More

A (young) Vancouver resident recommended this place. We went early evening, before the crowds. I'm not a fan of Canadian craft beer -- too strong, too heavily hopped -- but if you want to sample it this is the place to come: the range of...More

The alibi room is near to the end of gastown, I like the railway gastown vibes in the place. Super friendly staff and they’re also knowledgeable about the beer there. They also serve food which is delicious!

4 of us had dinner in The Alibi Room last week. We were by far the oldest people in the place, everyone else was in their 20's. The food list is short and carefully selected to provide good coverage for most tastes. The beer menu...More

A visit to Gastown is like turning back the clock and
stepping into a bygone era. With the distinction of
being Vancouver's oldest neighborhood, the many
plaques that stud the cobbled streets of Gastown tell
the story of its colorful past, giving Vancouver's
history a more lively presence here than anywhere
else. Having been originally founded around a popular
worker's saloon, it's no wonder that today some of
