Rusty Gull Neighbourhood Pub (North Vancouver)
www.rustygull.com Located in North Vancouver across the Burrard Inlet from downtown Vancouver. Founded in 1983 and a local favorite for over 30 years. It is a small cozy bar, long and narrow. It has a very nautical ship building theme as this area was the ship building area and still is today. They have quite a few great old pictures of the ship yards and workers. As you enter the front door, there is a small beer and wine store on your right, then they have 2 large booths. On the left side is the kitchen followed by the first half of the bar that has a very nice gas fireplace. The sit up bar is in the middle of the pub but there are only a few seats, on either side. It is a very nice looking bar, but there are bar stools in a row right across from it with a small ledge to set your drink. The back or south side of the bar has a small stage where they have live music on Friday and Saturday nights and some Sundays. Since the bar is built on a slope, the back patio area is one story off the ground, and has a retractable roof. It had a great view of the water before a condo high rise was built recently. As for beer there are 18 different types of beer on tap. Their house wine is Peller Estates Wine which is an Ontario, Canada winery. They have lunch and dinner specials daily. I did not eat here this time, but others around the pub were eating and all the meals looked very good. They have 3 HD TV's, just enough to watch the game. I have always liked this pub, and suggest that you give it a try!!
