At UBC's nearest good pub and one of Vancouver's best Irish watering holes, you'll find plenty of students avoiding their assignments. They come to down some pints, watch TV sports or catch free live music, often of the lyrical Celtic persuasion. Harp and Smithwick's join Ireland's fave stout on the beer list alongside some good BC craft brews.
Compare Vancouver-made Storm Black Plague Stout with a glass or two of Guinness and you'll soon be singing a merry ballad. Food-wise, you'll find all the usual heaping pub grub classics, from fish and chips to bangers and mash.
