Gastown’s Friendliest Pub

Just a stone’s throw from the steam clock in historic Gastown, you’ll find The Black Frog Eatery. Locals call this friendly hangout their second home, and they are often joined by visitors who come to enjoy delicious pub food and a great selection of draught beer in a fun, relaxed atmosphere.

The pub was opened in 2005 by husband and wife team “Nemo” and Marian, who cheekily named it The Black Frog Eatery after their favourite hometown hangout, The Black Dog in Edmonton. The name stuck, and Vancouverites have happily welcomed the duo to Gastown. However, they haven't lost their Edmonton connection. Starting in 2006, when the Oilers made it to the Stanley Cup final, The Black Frog Eatery became the place to go in Vancouver to catch the Oilers game on the big screen.

“We didn’t plan that one, but during that season there was a run with the Canucks versus the Oilers and we had a lot of Edmonton fans show up. As soon as people realized we were Oilers-friendly, it just took off from there,” says Marian.

Gastown is such an interesting neighbourhood, and not only have a lot of our regular customers become really close friends, but we’ve even travelled to see some of the tourists we got to know over a day or two. - Marian, co-owner

A Welcoming Pub-style Restaurant

From hearty pub classics to healthier West Coast fare, The Black Frog Eatery is one of those rare places where “pub food” and “good food” are synonymous. And to quench your thirst, you’ll find an impressive selection of draught lagers and ales, as well as wines, whiskeys and other spirits.

Daily food specials, daily tap specials, sports on the big screen, a great crowd – you’ll find it all at The Black Frog Eatery.

Bonding over Great Food and Great Fun

For Marian, the highlight of running The Black Frog Eatery is getting to know the locals and visitors who stop by to enjoy their food, drinks and atmosphere.

“We’ve been really lucky to meet a lot of amazing people over the years,” says Marian. “Gastown is such an interesting neighbourhood, and not only have a lot of our regular customers become really close friends, but we’ve even travelled to see some of the tourists we got to know over a day or two. It does make for a really cool experience when you’re running a business.”
