Fringe Cafe

Pub in Kitsilano & University of British Columbia

A tiny reminder of Kitsilano's counterculture heritage, there's a comfy dive-bar ambience at this memorabilia-lined locals' hangout. The cheapest drafts are Dirty Girl Lager and Ugly Boy Pale Ale, but hoppy Fat Tug IPA is far superior (it's on special every Thursday). There's also an array of bottled brews plus a small but eclectic food menu (try the Jamaican patties).

There are drinks specials here every day as well as popular trivia (Tuesday) and karaoke (Thursday) nights.
