The Loose Moose is known for its slightly chaotic and upbeat atmosphere, where students and even Canucks players can be seen rubbing shoulders while putting back a cold one. Their beer menu is lengthy, with the usual domestic brews and premiums and imports that include Stella Artois, Sleeman's, Big Rock, Asahi, Bass Ale, Tuborg, Warsteiner and premium imports Boddingtons and Kilkenny. The jovial bartenders will happily serve your brews, shooters and martinis with a healthy side of sarcasm and wit.
Sports Fans Unite
Since opening its doors in 2001, the Loose Moose has played host to a slew of NHL stars, from Canucks Markus Naslund to Dominek Hasek, who come out to watch the odd game on one of the many televisions that line the bar. Musical giants Nickleback, Motorhead, Swollen Members and The Tea Party have also been known to pop in for a drink -- possibly lured by the loud rock beats that floods out onto the streets.
Loose Moose munchies come big and cheap; with a late night menu featuring $5 eats, from the chicken burger to meatballs in chilli sauce to quesadillas. Or opt for a bigger plate, such as the chicken brochettes, which are served with roasted maple apple dipping sauce, with fries or salad. And there are even a few vegetarian options, such as the spinach & artichoke dip, and the Tree Hugger (seasoned vegetables & ranch dip). Meat lovers will enjoy the racks of ribs, pepper steak stir-fry and a slew of pasta options, served with hot Cajun chicken, mushroom chicken, glazed salmon or Bolognese.
