About Colony Bar Kits

After nearly 30 years as a beloved neighborhood hangout, Kits Billiards finally closed in late 2012. The early months of the following year saw the room stripped bare and rebuilt as the comfortable, well-appointed and inviting bar known as Colony. An instant hit with locals, Colony has become the go-to spot in Kitsilano for casual drinks, dinner, live comedy, trivia and all major sporting events. Friendly staff greet guests looking to keep good company 7 days weekly, serving brunch on weekends, and lunch, dinner and drink features every day.
