Pub Battle

On this site I use the ELO Rating System to rank the pubs, clubs and bars against each other. The ELO Rating System was developed to rank chess players relative to each other, but it works for pubs too! Choosing a win, lose or draw for a pub will alter its ELO score up or down. The score is shown in the list of pubs below. The list can be sorted on different criteria depending on which button you press above the list.

About this site

Welcome to VanPubs.com! Use this site to expand your knowledge of downtown Vancouver by searching the pubs, bars and clubs by name or location! I work on this site in my spare time and I plan to add many more features, if you have any suggestions for what you'd like to see then don't hesitate to leave them.

Currently this site allows you to search the map of downtown Vancouver for areas you would like to go out in the evening and find pubs, bars, clubs and other drinking establishments nearby. The map of downtown Vancouver showed above displays a marker for every drinking establishment that I've added to date. I'd love to hear about ones I've missed. You can click on the marker to display the name of the place, clicking on the name will then show you a picture and additional information about that establishment. You can also leave comments about that pub on that page. Some recent comments are shown below.

Future plans include adding your own pubs, bars and content, leaving review scores, personalising the page with your preferences, sorting bars by many various categories, adding events that either just your friends or the whole world can see. The overall goal is to create a fast and easy way to discover the best pubs, bars and clubs in downtown Vancouver. I'd hope that by checking this site, you'll find a place you've never been to and know you would enjoy it before you even get there.
