1601 Main Street, Vancouver

From dream to reality

The owners of Dubh Linn Gate in Whistler had a dream. They wanted to take their Irish public house experience to the city, to an urban location that was as lively and fun and genuine as Whistler. They found their neighbourhood at 1601 Main Street and then the work began. Transforming an unfinished space with very high ceilings and many windows into a cozy local gathering spot in the true tradition of Irish hospitality.

With a delightfully passionate team of professionals the space unfolded. Trips to the Ireland and England for furniture and authentic bric-a-brac were a must, old bricks were sourced locally and repurposed, engaging staff were hired and trained. The dream came to life. A genuinely Irish yet definitely local pub, an unpretentious gathering place. Watch the dream taking shape in our video below, then come and see for yourself. We have a friendly welcome and a pint of Guinness waiting. Sláinte.
