Donnelly Group is pleased to announce that renovations are underway at 888 Burrard St. to reopen the former location of the Winking Judge as The Ballyhoo Public House in early June.
The Burrard and Smithe corner location has long been the go-to Cinema District destination for locals, movie fans, and thirsty visitors. The renovated space will blend a host of updates and upgrades into the scuffed soul of building’s 80-year history as a gas station, auto dealership, all-night diner, and finally, a favourite watering hole.
The snug setting draws some inspiration from 70s NYC bars, finished with all the vital mod cons and a range of local craft beers and considered cocktails to quench the thirst. The menu of modern pub staples will surprise with a few unexpected twists and, on the weekend, fresh-pressed juices and brunch will refuel early starters and revive late arrivers.
