Vancouver-filter: Bars with (free or low-cost) party rooms for booking?
June 15, 2016 7:26 PM   Subscribe

I'm hoping to organize a party with about 40 people in the next few weeks in Vancouver, BC. Ideally, it would be in a place that would have a low spend-limit, or free. Not picky about location. It would be more drinks than dinner, although I could order some apps for sharing. Does anyone have any leads or previous experience with this? I'm doing this a bit last minute and not super hopeful, but if the geniuses of AskMe can help, I would be ever indebted!

Steamworks in Gastown/Waterfront once "rented out" (basically just reserved, with a deposit) their downstairs room to a Fark meetup, of all things. Nothing special, decent beers, can do real cocktails, ok appies. It's at Waterfront (transit hub).

Maybe one of the old community social clubs like the Portuguese Club of Vancouver on the Drive or the Vancouver Alpen Club/Deutsches Haus at Victoria and 33rd? Not fancy but I'm guessing the cost would be pretty good.

Best answer: One of the Legions? I organized a large group outing at the Legion on Commercial Drive- it was a perfect dive bar that could easily accommodate a large group, if that's your thing. Cheap crappy beer. They let you bring in your own food, which worked well for us. And there's pool/darts/etc which was a hit.
