“Lennox” is a Celtic word meaning “a grove of elm trees,” but at the Lennox Pub on lively Granville and Robson Streets, no elms are to be found. There are, however, plenty of chairs, booths and stools – waiting for people to come sit, have a bite and enjoy a drink or two. Tourists, fresh out of their hotels and wandering the streets, are lured in by the friendly, laid-back atmosphere, while locals know that it’s the prime spot for a pre-show meal or post-concert drink. The Lennox is also bookable for private parties; the space can hold about 160 party-goers.
Modern, Cozy Interiors
Come here for the welcoming atmosphere, but the tastefully decorated interior is also a plus: dark wood, green upholstery, brass and glass, and a long wooden bar create an upscale, but approachable ambiance. The Lennox has two levels, both with banquette and booth seating, and big TV screens that show Canucks pay-per-view games. The small patio is constantly packed, as the outside seats are prime people-watching perches.
Beer, Wine and Beer-Flavoured Food
As to be expected, the drink menu is extensive. Belgian beers, like Hoegaarden White Ale and Belle-vue Kriek, are available; there are plenty of ales and lagers on tap, including the requisite Guiness and Kilkenny Cream Ale; and Canadian beers also make up a strong contingent, in addition to bottled beers and ciders, cocktails and wine. For hungry diners, a full à la carte menu is also available. Try the Boddington’s fish and chips or the tandoori chicken burger. The baby back ribs, basted with Guiness barbeque sauce (of course!), is a bestseller. On weekend and holiday mornings, brunch is served from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
