Tap & Barrel Bridges is the flagship location, and test kitchen for the company’s culinary development program. The menu includes historic Bridges dishes, and offers a specially curated beer and wine list for Granville Island. A Tap & Barrel concept that honours a Vancouver restaurant of yesteryear.
Bridges former interior has been taken down to its studs with the walls and kitchens moved. It’s designed with local materials, filled with installations from local artisans, crafted by local artists and reclaimed industrial materials that celebrate the legacy of Granville Island. But never fear, that iconic yellow exterior will remain the same, and so will that incredible view!
