VANCOUVER — Gooseneck Hospitality’s latest project — Bells and Whistles — has opened in Vancouver’s Fraserhood/Cedar Cottage district.
The beer hall and casual-dining concept features a 3,000-sq.-ft dining room and seating for 150 guests. The beer hall offers a full bar, approachable menu and an interactive table-games room with complimentary happy hour from 2 to 5 p.m. It also features two ultra-HD 4K projection screens to display big-league sports action.
“All of us at Gooseneck are big sports fans and it’s been a dream of ours to one day open a unique and accessible beer hall and casual-food concept,” says James Iranzad, co-founder, Gooseneck Hospitality. “To be able to do it in Cedar Cottage — an exciting, up-and-coming neighbourhood that we also call home — makes it a perfect fit.”
The space boasts a subtle vintage sports vibe created by Ricky Alvarez of Tinto Creative. Design elements include wooden picnic table-style dining-room seating, a marquée-style wrap-around wall tap list, and a custom-milled fir bar top.
The bar offers 19 draught lagers, ales and ciders, including local craft beers, rare gems from celebrated international breweries and a ‘Bells and Whistles’ pale ale custom-created by Delta’s Four Winds Brewing. The drink menu also includes a selection of B.C. wine and always-double cocktails on tap, including a signature hopped Buffalo Trace bourbon old fashioned ($12).
The Bells and Whistles kitchen offers a diverse menu of locally and ethically sourced fare created by executive chef Alessandro Vianello, including snacks and starters; gourmet salads, burgers and sandwiches. The restaurant also features a rotating selection of ice cream cones, sundaes and floats made with soft-serve from Foothills Creamery.
