Speakeasy on Granville

The Speakeasy on Granville (map, 921 Granville Street, Vancouver, BC, Canada, phone: 604-685-5531) is a pub located on the downtown Granville strip between Smithe and Nelson (closer to Smithe).

Digging up on Wikipedia reveals a bit about the history of the Speakeasy:

A speakeasy was an establishment which illegally sold alcoholic beverages during the period of United States history known as Prohibition (1920–1932, longer in some states).

Darien, a writer from Vancouver, comments on yelp.ca (click here to read review):

The drink prices are downtown average and the place is deceptively large. I often come to this spot when I want to get a drink late on a Friday or Saturday night. Due to the size of the room, one tends to be able to sit down most times during the evening. This is certainly not a destination, but true to the name is a relaxed place to unwind.

Pictured below are the nachos and beer that I ordered with my friends. The food tasted great, and was around $10.

    I was offended and upset by the ad board outside the restaurant, on the street. It was advertising drink specials. One of the drinks on the ad board was “Dirty Hooker Shot…$4.00”. I talked to the “hostess” and she condescendingly said it was a popular drink name in Vancouver. (uh..that doesn’t make it right).I contacted the Hate Crimes Unit of the VPD but they said it didn’t qualify as a hate crime. However, I think it’s words like that which start hate. Bad on Speakeasy. I will never go there. p.s. I’m not a hooker, but I feel awful for anyone being called “a dirty whatever”….that is so mean and judgemental!

    Hate this place, waste of time.
    Host was very disrespectful and disrespectful.
    I’ve never been in a fight and yet my girlfriend hustled me out of that place before I punched the bigot as there was no reason other than race that we were treated to rudely.

    Do not dine here! The staff are terribly rude and disrespectful. Also, a 15% gratuity charge is included on all nills even when the service is bad and the staff are impolite.

    After years of partaking in a festive drinks at The Speakeasy, I was humiliated in front of colleagues by the staff.
    Do not DINE HERE
