In the heart of bustling Vancouver Chinatown, The Brixton offers sublime local craft beers, organic coffee, and a full fresh $5.95 food menu for your enjoyment. Come the evening, we bring you everything from trivia to jam nights to live DJs, alongside a range of excellent beer and liquor specials.
We organized a large get together for the pub quiz only for it to be cancelled at the start. They had one bartender/server/greeter on. This poor guy had the entire place to look after on his own. We finished our pints and left. The only reason I gave it this rating instead of a lower was for the effort of the solo worker and the decor.

Pretty shoddy service and a shady operation. Their website indicates that all meals are $5.95 all day every day. The menu at the bar lists food items in the $12-20 range. When confronted about this discrepancy, the bar tender just shrugged it off. No apology, no promise to do anything about it. We realized that one of our friends was going to be DJing there that night, so despite our misgivings, we decided to stick it out and order some food. We were then told that they needed to close the bar for an hour to set up for the event. It's a tiny venue and was apparently a free event (if you believe anything these guys say), but instead of continuing to serve us drinks while they set up around us, they insisted on kicking us out. Needless to say, we didn't go back and never will again.

Do yourself a favor. Go to the Brixton now. Have brunch, lunch, dinner or just drinks. The quality of food and price is shockingly excellent.
Today I had a plate of pierogies and an organic quinoa salad for about $12. Each plate would have being a reasonably smallish meal on its own. Together they were perfect for someone with a medium appetite.
The drink selection is also strong. I've been to the Brixton a number of times over the last 5 years and I understand they have a new menu now. It is definitely repeat definitely worth putting on your to-do list. I will certainly be back. Hopefully in the near future. And if I can't find a friend to go with me I'm going on my own!
PS, service was very good today as well.

Went here last night for the first time and was blown away. Such a great little spot. It was packed and these 2 dudes working absolutely killed it. They were not expecting a flood of a hundred people packing in there and these guys kept up....drinks were fast....food was great.....service was amazing.....great night :)
