Pivo Public House

Pivo A few weeks back, Lorraine and I found ourselves walking back to our respective places by foot, and we walked right past Pivo Public House. We had been meaning to visit this bar for a while so we thought “heck, why not stop for a drink”. Frankly, I was very impressed with the place, until… I found out it had three big flat screens, like for hockey games. And while Pivo Public House is sophisticated and has great decor, and fantastic music, I was fully disappointed. It’s not that I don’t like hockey. It’s the fact that a posh bar is looking forward to become a sports bar. That’s what I can’t really stomach.

Pivo The place is gorgeous and the drinks are reasonably priced (the night we went there were beers at about 50% which also made me very happy). The ambient music is great, and the service is friendly. But … the flatscreen TVs. That’s what really does not excite me. I would come back to Pivo, but I’d make sure that there’s not a hockey game.

So.. it’s likely somewhere I might want to head to take in the Canucks after work? How was the food?

We didn’t have any food, but it smelled delicious. I think it’s more a place for beers than for dinners.
