Meet the owner

Few places in Vancouver can boast as rich a history of food and drink as Six Acres. The cozy Gastown eatery, located at the corner of Water and Carrall, was the site of the city's first bar – a hotel and saloon built in the 1870s by John “Gassy Jack” Deighton – and has been home to a series of popular watering holes for well over 100 years.

And since they opened the doors in 2006, owners Claire Hutchings, Tyler Quantz, Silas Straathof and Corben Winfield have kept that tradition going strong, providing tasty share plates, lively conversation and a carefully curated roster of craft beer in an intimate, brick-lined atmosphere.

“They started it mainly because they wanted a place they could hang out,” explains general manager Colette Griffiths. “They didn't feel like there was anywhere they could go, and feel like they were relaxing in someone's living room. That was their mission with Six Acres. They all loved beer, and everyone who works here loves beer and good food.”

A great little spot

What a fantastic little eatery for a casual bite. Fantastic selection of nibblies and an even better selection of beers from around the world. A definite must for anyone looking to chill out in a funky downtown spot. Expect to wait on busy nights, I've been there twice now and each time had to wait 10 minutes for a table but the wait is worth every second...not to mention that they will bring you your first drink order to sip while you wait for a table to come free.

Hit these Happy Hour hotspots in Vancouver's Gastown 'hood

When the weather is fair (read: summer time) you can kick back and enjoy a beer, cocktail and an appetizer for truly delectable Happy Hour prices on Six Acres’ spectacular (albeit pint-sized) patio. Located directly behind Gastown’s infamous Gassy Jack statue, you’ll want to imbibe on local micro-brew beers and try your hand at the veggie sliders before heading out to explore the neighbourhood. The best thing about this Happy Hour is it begins hours ahead of the competition – at 2:30 pm.
