We are on a mission to bring people together to create meaningful and memorable experiences through genuine hospitality
We conduct business in ways that are good to the earth and good to each other. Ways that minimize our environmental footprint and support our local communities. By supporting us, you’re also supporting our cause and helping make the world a better place so for that, we thank you!
We love our planet and strive to operate big restaurants with small carbon footprints. Our exclusively ‘on tap’ beverage program has allowed us to eliminate over 1 million bottles to date. In addition, our locations are built using 80% reclaimed materials, use high-efficiency lighting and equipment, and have eliminated single-use plastics and unnecessary paper products.
Local Craft Beer & Wine
We believe that some of the best craft beer, premium wine, and spirits are created right here in British Columbia so why look elsewhere? Both our Beverage Director and Sommelier spend the majority of their time visiting breweries, wineries, and distilleries in order to develop our beverage lists and maintain unique and exclusive menus at each location.
Supporting Local Artists
Our passion for supporting local doesn’t stop at food and beverages. Our restaurants feature museum-grade art collections, highlighting Canadian artists such as Douglas Coupland, Carla Tak, and David Cho. We are proud of our growing art collection and invite you to explore our spaces to check out the incredible work from these esteemed and emerging artists.
As a restaurant group, we understand the importance of a good meal and want to help put an end to hunger. That’s why our main sponsorship is dedicated to Mealshare, a non-profit organization that works with partnering charities to provide meals to those in need. When a guest orders one of our Mealshare items, we provide one healthy meal to a youth in need. To date, our locations have provided over 80,000 meals.
We serve next level comfort food that you can feel good about. Food that is seasonally inspired and locally sourced using the freshest produce, Ocean Wise sustainable seafood, Fraser Valley free run chicken, and Certified Angus Beef.
Our beverage program features BC’s best wineries, craft breweries, and distilleries. This includes beer made at BREWHALL, our very own award-winning craft brewery known for its brewing innovation and collaborations.
Our restaurants are community gathering places where you go when you’re not at home or work. Places where you meet with friends and family to enjoy great food and drinks while creating lasting memories. We currently have three Tap & Barrel locations, a craft brewery and beerhall called BREWHALL, a smaller concept called TAPshack, and will be reinventing the iconic Bridges Restaurant on Granville Island as the fourth Tap & Barrel in spring 2022.
We pride ourselves on providing authentic guest experiences that can’t be found anywhere else. This is done through a unique style of service where our teams are encouraged to let their personalities shine. We believe that People Who Really Care Do It Better and share a passion for food, beverage, and hospitality.
