Previously a small, raised platform enclosed by a hand railing, the dance floor at this historic Brit pub just off busy 17th Avenue Southwest has been dropped to floor level and adjoins the main bar. The expanded area encourages even more patrons to put down their brews and shake it. The Rose and Crown features live music on its wee Guinness Stage with local bands performing everything from your favourite ’80s hits to sweet soul music each and every weekend.
This mainstay watering hole puts on zero airs, and if you wander in solo and feel like company, you’ll probably make a friend before you leave. Maybe it’s some good spiritual juju from those departed. The circa-1920s building was once a funeral home before being renovated in 1986. The original wallpaper and brooding dark wood was kept intact, and makes for a perfect traditional British-style pub feel. The menu is loaded with hearty nibbles, and the long, curved bar is perfect for one to belly-up to.
The great food, expansive beer list and friendly servers at the Rose & Crown just north of Fourth Street and 17th Avenue Southwest keep the this sociable pub English buzzing night after night. A former funeral home built in the 1920s, it was turned into a bar in 1986. The table in front of its wood-burning fireplace is rarely empty (and when it is, they’ll sometimes tweet it out to local followers), but there are plenty of other sweet seating spots in this deceptively large pub.
