8 "Eating At The Bar" restaurants in Vancouver.
Maybe you forgot to make a reservation for your date, or maybe you just want to dine solo without being surrounded by two-tops filled with other people on dates. Whatever the reason, you probably occasionally find yourself with the need to eat the bar. Here are the restaurants perfect for doing so.
The Alibi Room in Railtown is a beer bar in a huge warehouse, and is where you can try out pours from local breweries.
Grapes and Soda is a great spot for a glass of natural wine while you wait for your table at a restaurant nearby, but it's worth coming to on its own.
Whether you come to La Mezcaleria in Commercial Drive for the mezcal cocktails or the Mexican food, you'll leave happy.
Le Faux Bourgeois is a classic French bistro where you won't have to wait long for a table to eat steak frites and escargot.
This tiny plae in Gastown serves the best tapas in the city and lots of food out of cans, along with an impressive selection of Spanish wines.
From the same people as Kissa Tanto, Bao Bei is another must-visit spot, though it's more casual and the food is creative Chinese.
Kissa Tanto is one of the hardest reservations to get, but it's well worth whatever you have to do to get one to eat the Japanese - Italian food.
