Named after the Bimini Islands in the Bahamas, this venue first opened its doors in 1974 as BC’s first licensed neighborhood pub. With Greenpeace’s offices right across the street, the bar became a hangout for hippies and revolutionaries in its original years. It was later purchased by Jeff Donnelly in 1999. After a 2007 fire gutted the building and caused hundreds of thousands of dollars in damage, the historic public house used new materials throughout when recreating itself, including imported patterned tile and custom light fixtures and furniture. It also incorporated 85 year old wood reclaimed from a defunct Vancouver mill, to give the room a cozy cabin feel.
The Bimini serves 24 craft beers on draft, cocktails designed to impress enthusiasts and win over those new to cocktail culture, and modern pub fare from interesting seasonal menus using only organic, locally sourced products. Brunch is available on weekends and on holidays until 4 PM, and we highly recommend you come in for it soon. It’s Vancity’s most delicious way to stave off a hangover, or start the day off right with a little liquid sunshine.
A central hub of the Kitsilano neighborhood, the Bimini Public House has set the backdrop for countless events over the years. From live music performances, to special private events, to rowdy public celebrations, nearly anyone in the area has at least one warm, glowing memory of a happy time they had at the Bimini with friends.
