Pourhouse celebrates pre-Prohibition lifestyle with an impeccable attention to period detail. Antique couches. Crushed velvet wallpaper. Pedal-operated sinks. A 12-metre bar with a stable of tenders preparing impeccable cocktails. And a retro-styled, rib-sticking menu where split pea soup with smoked ham hock is listed under “Light Fare.” All within steps of the tourist-friendly Gastown steam clock.
