What we're about

Vancouver Pub Nights is a social group where we meet frequently to grab drinks, hang out with friends, and meet new people. We go to a different pub each week, constantly hopping around so we can experience the most of this city. If you're looking to meet new people and explore the different pubs Vancouver has to offer, then this is the group for you! We do this every Thursday, and net around 30-60 people each time.

The vibe here is very casual and relaxed, we're here to let loose and have fun. You can show up for an entire hour or the entire night, you can go around meeting dozens of people or stick with one group. The biggest thing here is that we're all enjoying ourselves and having a good time.

Rules are pretty basic and we don't have many. Be nice to each other, treat the venue & staff with respect, no unsolicited advertising, don't treat this like a dating group, and no unsolicited messages to people you've not met at an event. If you experience any problems, please send a message to one of the organizers and we'll deal with it accordingly.

Pub Night @ (Placeholder)

Needs a location

**This week's event will be held at the great bar named Placeholder, a place that's very special to me and holds the title of #1 bar in Vancouver. I'm kidding, this is literally just a Placeholder so that I don't have to make the event from scratch each time, and so that people know when the next pub night is. Got a suggestion for where we should go? Leave a comment and we'll see if we can make it happen.** This event is all about having a chill pub night on a Thursday evening. Have a drink and kick back, meet new people and make friends, talk about whatever interests you. Have a good time everyone! FAQ: ///The event is full, can I still come by?/// Send me a message! You’ll most likely be able to, but I will need to confirm with the venue. ///I’m going to be late, is that fine?/// Yes, come by whenever is convenient to you. Just don’t be too late, or you’ll miss most of it! ///Is there an age restriction, and what ID do I need?/// You need to be 19+ to attend these events, since they take place at bars. You need 2 forms of valid ID, one of which has to be government issued. (Drivers license, Passport, etc.) ///It’s my first time going, any suggestions?/// Don’t worry, you’re not alone. Vancouver Pub Nights started only recently, and in my experience a lot of events are filled with first timers. I recommend coming as close to the event start time if you can. Not a problem if you can’t though! Just come up to the group and say hi. If you’re feeling nervous, feel free to toss me a message via Meetup or just come up to me and I’ll get you acquainted with people. ///What time does the event end?/// Although usually the pub night runs for 3 hours (either 6 to 9, or 7 to 10), it often it goes a bit longer if people want to stick around. Sometimes we end up hopping to another pub or grabbing some food. Latest I’ve stayed out from Vancouver Pub Nights is 1:30AM, though that’s a fairly rare occurrence. You’re welcome to stay as long as you want or as short as you want! ///I don’t drink alcohol, can I still come by?/// Yes, of course! Soda and water are still drinks, and you don’t need alcohol to make friends. ///What's up with all the extra guests, are you really bringing dozens of people?/// I post this event in 2 different groups, and I make the numbers match each other by adding guests accordingly. Each +1 is another person who RSVP'd, just in a different group. ///I know a good bar, can that be a venue sometime?/// Definitely. I love exploring new pubs, so send me a message if you know a place that you think we should check out. See you there! I'm looking forward to meeting everyone.

Virtual Pub Night on Discord

Online event

Link to the Discord Server: https://discord.gg/Q9WMC5J - Go to this link to join the virtual pub night. Since we can't go to a real pub due to coronavirus, we'll be having a virtual pub night every Thursday at 7PM. Come chat with new and old friends, and get your socializing in despite social distancing. Feel free to grab a drink too, great way to liven things up. It's really easy to join: just click the link, enter a nickname, and sign up for an account if you would like. You'll be able to join one of the voice channels, where we'll be having a group call. I'll leave 3 channels available, in case one of them gets too crowded.
