Housed in the historic Dominion Grand Hotel (est. 1899) in Gastown, this pub was renovated in 2007 and has retained its original tin-stamped ceilings, exposed brick walls, stained glass windows and railings. The rest of this storied room has been given a grand renovation, including a new sound system and jukebox, classic pub furniture and a big screen TV. A long-time favourite Vancouver watering hole, the Lamplighter is the city’s busiest pub for good reason: friendly service, honest local pub fare, a large selection of craft beer and cocktails, comprehensive sports programming, talented DJs and live bands give the legendary Lamplighter its famed atmosphere.
