Wicklow Pub (Vancouver, Canada)

The Wicklow Pub, 610 Stamps Landing, Vancouver, British Columbia Canada. Pictures don't do this pub's location any justice at all!! Located on the waterfront of False Creek which is not really a creek but the bottom part of the downtown area of Vancouver.  Downtown Vancouver is like a peninsula, and the pub is on the south side of False Creek. You can get to it via Aqua Bus which is a little ferry that runs around False Cree.  More importantly the water front is mostly open to bicycles and foot traffic with miles of paved paths.  There is a parking garage about 1/2 block away.  My friend and I went there on a beautiful sunny Saturday afternoon.  Our goal was a upstairs open patio to enjoy the sun and water.  We got exactly what we were looking for (as you can see from the photo above)   Nice little patio with a killer view looking west towards Granville Island.  It was happy hour when we were there to a glass of house wine, red or white was $5.00 for a 6 oz. glass.  It was also half price appy's.  We had the Yam fries that came with two dipping sauces one was an chipolte aioli dip, quite nice.  The other thing we has was the assorted olives, yum were they ever good.  It was a selection of various types of olives.  There are 16 different types of draught beer, including a good selection of local beers.  This has a main floor part to the bar and a second story part of the bar each with their own bar.  The bar in the photo is the one on the main floor.  Since it was so nice out side I can really tell you much about the inside of the bar.  But really on such a nice day who would want to be inside. They use only free run local chicken and fresh wild caught salmon.  We really enjoyed our time on the patio and could have spent a few hours in the sun relaxing with a glass of wine.  I look forward to coming back again!
