The Marquis

2666 Granville St, Vancouver, BC V6H 3H8

This long, narrow room is a casual dining spot that turns into hockey central when the Canucks are playing. With three TVs showing the game and a crowd of hockey-mad regulars at the long bar at the front of the room, you can catch every play while you drink and dine. Happy hour features discounted hi-balls, wine and beer. Get happy daily from 4:00 to 7:00 pm and all night on Mondays.

From local craft breweries to perfect patios, White Rock has an ideal suds-sipping spot for every taste.  [Photo courtesy of 3 Dogs Brewing]

Grab a seat for your dose of vitamin D. [Photo credit: Glowbal Restaurant Group]
