Sports bars, unlike baroque recitals and spelling bees, allow you to cheer for your favourite competitors with a cold beer in hand. Let your passions mingle more freely with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of pub fare and drinks during dinner or $35 worth of pub fare and drinks during lunch (11 a.m.–3 p.m. daily) at The Dunbar Social House on Dunbar Street.
Located in the historic Dunbar-Southlands neighbourhood, The Dunbar crafts globally inspired casual fare while pouring myriad domestic and local brews. Diners warm up to an ensemble performance of menu openers such as yam fries ($8) or chicken wings draped in a choice of colourful sauce cloaks with a side of blue cheese, carrots, and celery ($10). Buns house hefty homemade burgers fashioned from beef, chicken breast, vegetables, and tuna or salmon fillet ($10–$12), with additional toppings fenced in by house cut fries. Wash down meals with frosted mugs of Okanagan Spring 1516, Sleeman honey brown, or Alexander Keith's IPA ($6 pints).
Patrons dine, converse, and found fork-based musical groups while watching the Canucks' ice-bound antics and other live sports. Early diners may also delve into the meat scrambles, veggie omelette beds, and miniature biscuit futons of weekend brunch.
$15 for $30 Worth of Pub Dinner Fare and Drinks or $35 Worth of Pub Lunch Fare and Drinks.
