Fringe Café

Pub in Kitsilano & University of British Columbia

A tiny reminder of Kitsilano's counterculture heritage, from its memorabilia-lined walls to its chatty, bar-propping regulars. The cheapest drafts are often Dirty Girl Lager and Ugly Boy Pale Ale but Fat Tug IPA is a far superior brew if you're picky (it's on special every Thursday). There's also a surprisingly large array of international bottled brews, including everything from Tuborg to Hobgoblin.

If you're hungry, there's the usual range of burgers and nachos plus nicely spicy Jamaican patties. Drop by on Monday for free-entry trivia night.
