Meet the owner

"We serve the best Irish food and play the best Irish music in Vancouver," says Eddie Emerman. Eddie, co-owner of The Blarney Stone with his brother, Marv, could be accused of being biased, but since the popular Gastown pub and entertainment venue has been in existence since 1972, it's a worthy boast. "We've been around a long time," says Eddie, "and we pride ourselves on the fact that about 90% of our main courses honour the Irish heritage and 30% of our live music is Irish."

The Irish music is still a draw for the pub. "We had a very popular band here, 'Killarney', who played from 1974 to 2013. They're retired now, but they still come back for St. Patrick's Day and various other events. And we still have live music on the weekends featuring Irish fiddlers that can switch from Irish to pop to rock, so there's something for everyone."

For sports fans, there’s also five big screen TVs and a massive 20 foot jumbo screen that makes the big game “larger than life.”

For the younger bride, this is the dance club to hit up early in the night. The food and drinks here are well priced, and there are very affordable specials each day. The music hails from the '70s, '80s and '90s and is very danceable. While you may not want to spend the entire evening at this boisterous Gastown bar, it will definitely get you in the mood for a great night out with the ladies.

The lineups can be a bit long at times, sometimes going all the way around the block, so plan accordingly.
