What do we mean, "Modern Tavern"? - Well, we feel this term best sums up what we are trying to achieve here at the Alibi Room.
Since summer 2006, new owners Raya Audet & Nigel Springthorpe have been quietly turning the Alibi Room into the place for local craft beer on tap. We have become a true Free House, pouring guest beers from all over the province and beyond.
The addition of new head chef Greg Armstrong (formerly chef at Habit Lounge) has added an understated sophistication to our very accessible menu. The menu reflects a strong desire to provide familar, comforting dishes with an emphasis on quality ingredients.
All of our meat, fish & poultry are either sourced locally, ocean friendly, naturally raised or free run.
157 Alexander Street, Vancouver, V6A1B8
Calling themselves the "Modern Tavern", the Alibi Room is proud to host 50 taps of local and imported beer. Despite being a Vancouver heritage site, their processes are modern, only using locally sourced and ocean friendly meats for their menu. Speaking of, it’s small but delectable, featuring starters, salads and a few entrees and sandwiches. Their passion for beer prompts them to give pairings for menu items, but they also provide wine and cocktails if that’s more your thing. A rotating cask selection, as well as sporadic US keg imports means there’s always something new on tap.
