Well-worn wood floors, ornate chandeliers and carefully chosen antiques all work to give the room a classic, timeless feel. More pronounced and deliberate retro touches, like the reconfiguration of old books into funky menu covers give the place a hip, contemporary touch. The unique bathroom soundtrack features everything from old radio dramas like War of the Worlds and the Shadow to Japanese cooking tapes and speak-a-long German language lessons.
43 Beers and Counting
With the charm of a neighborhood pub, Six Acres attracts a crowd ranging in age from early 20s to early 40s -- a place to talk with friends without having to shout over loud music. But the main draw here is the beer. With over 40 selections from all over the world, each described in vivid and humorous detail in the beer menu, even the most clueless of beer enthusiasts is guaranteed to be satisfied. Some of the more popular choices include the London Porter, a deliciously smooth dark British beer; Chzecvar, the “orginal Budweiser, brewed by handsome Bohemian craftsmen since 1265,” and Tiger, the tasty lager from Singapore. Six Acres also offers a list of cocktails, highballs and whiskeys.
Finger Foods and More
An extensive sandwich, soup and salad selection is offered during the day. During evenings, the share plates and platters are a hit. The Magic Carpet platter features a plethora of Mediterranean and Middle Eastern finger foods, including baba ganoush, Macedonian feta, olives, dolmades, pistachios and lemon thyme dressed cucumber with Sangak, a Persian flat breat, perfect for dipping. For something from a little more close to home, try the Queen Charlotte with maple smoked salmon, soft Okanagan goat cheese served with a rustic baguette.
