The larger sibling of Commercial Drive's excellent nerd bar, this pub welcomes everyone from the Borg to beardy Lord of the Rings dwarfs. They come to peruse the memorabilia-studded walls (think Millennium Falcon models and a TARDIS washroom door), check out the role-playing games and dive into refreshments including Romulan Ale and Pangalactic Gargleblaster cocktails. Hungry? Miss the chunky chickpea fries at your peril.
It's not all about geek-based affectation here. This is a seriously good pub with an excellent array of BC craft beers and a menu of hearty pub fare. Drop in during happy hour (2pm to 5pm weekdays) for specials and your pick of the back-wall board games. And if the drinkers at the next table happen to be speaking Klingon, it's probably best to avoid eye contact.
