670 Smithe Street Vancouver
Everyone needs a neighborhood Irish pub. Ceili’s Modern Irish Pub fits the the bill perfectly and adds a little class into the mix, too. When you’re feeling the need for some delicious grub, a couple of pints or a mixed drink and a place to gather with friends to celebrate, watch the game, or just to hang out, this is the kind of place you crave. Ceili’s is big enough to accommodate even the most extended of families on its three floors of Irish themed bar space (in fact, its the biggest Irish pub in the city!) and even boasts the city’s largest rooftop area as well. The rooftop is the main attraction for anyone looking to spend a little time drinking or munching in the out of doors and with a view of the city. Service is known for being some of the best around and able to handle even large groups jostling for drinks.
When it comes to food, Ceili’s got all the comfort you’ll need. Some of the highlights? Try the bacon grilled cheese with handcut fries or the buffalo chicken burger. Wednesdays are always a hit when Ceili’s serves up $.35 wings (lots of flavors, including jamaican jerk and honey garlic!) and $4 budweiser and tequila to wash them down with from 5pm till close.
On the more happening nights, crowds gather to have a good time in this Granville staple. Ceili’s could be described as a great Irish pub by day and rowdy Irish club by night. Beer pong tournaments are not uncommon and there is no cover for entry before 10pm. Dance, lounge (lots of places to lounge, in fact) and guzzle beer or cocktails -- which ever suits your taste. If you’re looking for a change of scenery, head up to the roof to escape the crowds below any time of the year - the resto-bar keeps the patio heated even during the colder months. Keep an eye out for student night, Wednesday draught night and, if you’re really lucky, the dueling piano duo that kills it on Thursday nights (you’ve got to see it to believe it).
Whether you are looking for a tranquil night watching a game at the bar, a chat with friends, some bar food to kill your munchies, a spot to dance and drink or a venue to hire for an event or celebration, Ceili’s is it. Something for everyone and damn good to boot.
