Electric Bicycle Brewing
The Electric Bicycle is just a few doors down the famous brew heroes R&B Ale and can be easily spotted with their flailing inflatable tube man outside their lively colourful walls. They offer unusual beers like the Mermaid Man saltwater black Kolsch, which is a thirst-quenching flavorful brew and Sorbet IPA with coconut, mango, and pineapple notes. They have an oldies vibe with sixties psychedelic music playing while drinkers enjoy their cheese sandwiches and take selfies with the flower-power decor and fake fish tanks.
After a four-year-long hiatus, the all-new incarnation of the city’s favourite kitsch bar is back on its new location on Main. With their ’70s geometric wallpaper, chintz couches, and faux wood panels, you pretty much get a Rumpus Room. Their menu matches with their distinct atmosphere, like with soda-fountain cocktails topped with vodka-infused gummy bears, and gems such as ants on a log and mini hot dogs. However, because it’s Vancouver, the chicken is free-range, their burger patty is hormone-free and all-natural and they offer gluten-free and vegan options.
Tocador is a perfect late-night stopover with their lively room, tiny patio and amazing Cuban-themed cocktails with high-carb foods. They have their own one-of-a-kind creations like the guava-infused Aperol with house-made geranium perfume charged with sparkling rosé, and the classics, such as the El Presidente. After being famous packed with customers, the team wisely abandoned their struggle to reinvent the classic Cubano sandwich with a weedy mayo-mustard mix, and happiness — and yellow mustard. For non-pork eater, they can enjoy their jackfruit Cubano and they offer an 11 p.m.-till-close and all-day Monday Vancouver happy hours with discounted daiquiris and half-price oysters.
