Stout Public House

There’s something about the way Mark Prendergast and Dave Toth (Mark’s Irish; Dave’s Canadian) have set up this pub that gives it a magical camaraderie — the place is a haven for downtown’s lost souls.

Regular-hour food prices are a bit high (dishes like shepherd’s pie run in the $10–$12 bracket), but the daily happy hour offers plenty of cheap options, such as the Canadian staple Poutine (fries, gravy, fresh cheese curd) or sophisticated little numbers such as mussels in white wine and garlic sauce, both around five bucks. The Stout Burger’s a beautiful half-pound mess at around $8.

But the main reason to come is the chat; a lot of these guys and gals make you use your grey cells. Sports are big, especially hockey. When Stanley Cup season’s on, watch out. The place fills with Canucks, East Europeans, Russians, and East Coasters.
