Colony Bar is opening in Kits at 3255 West Broadway in “early 2013.” Did you get a postcard in the mail? I did. And I carried it upstairs. This could be quite cool. Arguably, the title “Kitsilano’s true neighbourhood pub” could go to a few contenders, so I’m not ready to commit to that for Colony just yet.
But here’s what we know about the new venture from the press release:
Located in Kitsilano, the classic-style bar with laid-back charm, opens with the commitment to give Kits locals a true neighbourhood spot to call their own.
Bill Keriasotis, co-owner of Colony shares, “The vision for Colony is a welcoming, carefree place to kick back and relax with friends any day of the week; hear some good music, eat some good food and maybe take in a game.”
“We’ve held this locale within my family for years as the old billiards hall – I grew up here with family and friends. So with the transformation into Colony, it’s a dream come true to make this my own with those same sentiments rooted at the core”, he adds.
The 100-seat watering hole will offer a stocked bar, along with ten beers on rotating taps, $4 dollar daily beers, a full menu with $10-dollar lunch items from Monday to Friday, and DJs spinning on Friday and Saturday nights.
Additionally, sun-loving Kits locals will be happy to know Colony will open a patio in the Spring, with sliding garage doors to welcome the warmer weather.
