Blarney Stone, the Tips (7)

Blarney Stone, the: Great party joint...just no dancing on the tables!

I was a frequent flyer at the Blarney Stone (I guess if you call 5 times in a year not so frequent). It was a great place for people that just want to go out and have mindless fun with a pint in your hand. The only beef I have with this place is the "security" staff, who are very inconsistent.

One night we were blethered and danced on the table and our bench. That time the manager came over and thanked us for creating such a great atmosphere. The next time we wanted to do that we got tossed out on our tuffs and told to never come back, even when we were complying with their "request" to get down from the table.

Oh well, if you want a good time, head to the Blarney Stone. Just don't expect to have TOO much fun:)

Blarney Stone, the: Get Drunk!

The Blarney Stone is one of my old haunts in Vancouver.

This is a fantastic low-key place where it's ok to have a few pints, then a few more until you're quite obliterated and wondering how you're getting home.

The line-ups do get pretty nutty on Friday and Saturday nights, so come early unless you don't mind waiting for a bit to get in.

Dress Code Pretty casual. I don't think they'll let you in if you don't have a shirt on, or ripped clothing.

The Blarney Stone: Taste of Ireland

The Blarney Stone in Vancouver's scenic and historic Gast Town has two stories and a great live band that mixes in Irish (and other) folk songs with covers of rock music. They take request so don't be afraid to ask the band to play your favourite tune. While the band takes a break they play popular music. This place is a blast and it's best if you go with a big group of people so you can take over somewhere to sit. Line-ups usually start around 9:30 but can move really fast or really slow depending on the night so get there early and grab a seat! The crowd is usually pretty mixed but alot of college kids hit it up on saturdays.

The dance floor is tiny and always jam packed on weekends so be prepared for some initamte rug-cutting. Cover is $8-10 CAD I think, pretty standard for Gas Town bars. The drinks are usually expensive ($5 CAD for a pint) but upstairs they have 2 for 1 shooters for $4.25 so that might be your best bet...although some of the sweeter ones taste pretty watered down.

All and all I always have a great time here!

Dress Code Smart Casual (I don't even know what that means). I wouldnt wear sandals or opened toed shoes if you plan on dancing and don't want to have your feet sqaushed on the dance floor.

The Blarney Stone: A good night out

The Blarney stone is a lively night out. There is a house band that plays Irish music and there is also a DJ playing chart sounds.

Make sure you get there before 10:00pm otherwise you could spend half your night lining up outside even though it is half empty inside?

The Blarney Stone: Irish Fun

My favourite nightclub in Vancouver is the Blarney Stone, located near Gastown. The Blarney Stone is an Irish dance club that spans two floors. When it's rockin, you'll see a live Irish Band on stage performing classic Celtic songs, and hear fellow patrons smacking their beer glasses on the tables in unison.

Dress Code Pretty much anything, although most people dress up with nice jeans, and no-sneakers to come here.

The Blarney Stone: The Blarney Stone

If you are interested in a traditional irish type pub this is the place to check out.
Saturday nights they have a live irish band and a dance floor that people get out onto. Generally people just sit at one of the many big long tables with a few pitchers.
Because it is in Gastown, this place is fairly expensive. Cover is about $7 and a pitcher of domestic beer is about $14.

Dress Code Very casual... jeans.
