www.thetaphouse.ca A buddy of mine (The Cardigan Kid) recommended this place so we went with him late one afternoon to give it a try. We were welcomed by 3 very nice young ladies and taken to our seats, something you don't see in too many pubs/ bars. This is a large place, the main floor holds 300 people and there is a second floor that holds 200 people. Opens 1100 am every day. It wasn't too busy when we were there. There are 24 different types of beer on tap. Their happy hour runs from 3 pm to 530 pm, and includes well drinks and glasses of wine for $4.00, $6.00 flights of beer and half price pizza. There are also beer specials. The pizza was thin crust and very good (Mushroom and peperoni is what I tried). On the main floor they have lots of booths and a large "L" shape Bar which seats 45 and looks down on to the rest of the bar. There is a 14 foot projection screen and numerous TV's around 20. Behind the screen is where the bands play. Through out the week there different themes, Monday is Team Game night, come and play various board games, Tuesday is Acoustic night, Wednesday nights is Trivia night, Thursday nights are dueling pianos, Fridays and Saturdays nights it is live bands, Sunday is country night. Service here was good, very friendly and helpful. Washrooms are single person washrooms, nice touch. There is a double set of stairs off to either side of the stage that leads up to the second floor. You can also go up by the front. It is not usually open during the day but also has a bar up there. Above the area where the dance floor is on the main floor, it is open to the second floor and gives a great view of the stage. During the day the dance floor has tables and chairs on it. They have numerous large booths, pool table, pinball game and comfortable for sure. A big plus for this place is the large parking lot in front (free parking). The Taphouse is just 2 blocks from the Guildford Mall, think about that around Christmas time when the other half of your relationship wants to go shopping. They drop you off here, and shop to their hearts content and pick you up when they are done shopping. A definite win win situation! I look forward to coming here again. This used to be the Mirage Night Club for 20 years before turning in to a pub, and now with a different clientele.
Late March 2015, was here again and I really enjoyed it. The pizza's were awesome. The service was very good. Did I say there is lots of parking, which is a big plus!! I will be back for sure!
