The Lamplighter Public House Vancouver

The Lamplighter Public House is a historic bar located in Gastown, Vancouver, and has come to develop a reputation as one of the area’s most lively watering holes. It is set within what used to be the Dominion Grand Hotel (est. 1899), offering unique historical insight into the city’s past. 

The building’s original tin-stamped ceilings, exposed brick walls, stained-glass windows, and railings, are still intact, catching the eye of everyone who walks through the door. The rest of the venue has undergone some renovation, adding a new sound system, comfortable furniture, flat screen televisions, pinball machines and pool tables, and stunning French doors that lead out to the brand-new patio.

The Lamplighter combines outstanding, friendly service with a focus on honest craft beer, hand-made cocktails, and humble pub food. The venue also prides itself on its extensive sports programming and full events calendar.

Be it live music, DJ performances, sports nights, or a simple dinner with friends, the Lamplighter always guarantees to provide a great atmosphere. The venue hosts a variety of weekly events, including Trivia Tuesdays and Bourbon and Bingo Wednesdays, as well as unique seasonal events on Halloween and New Year’s Eve.

So, come along and visit this iconic Vancouver favorite if you haven’t done so already, and see what all the fuss is about. The Lamplighter is open between the following times:
