The Portside - New Pub from Mark BrandIn the photo: 7 Alexander Street in Gastown. The future site of The Portside.
Does the man ever sleep?
Among his many, increasingly high-profile projects, entrepreneur Mark Brand intends to add one more hospitality unit to his Gastown portfolio.
His new, 300-seat beer salon, The Portside, will be located at 7 Alexander Street -- the location of the old Post Modern club, right next to chill winston.
Apparently, Brand wants to keep the vibe very casual -- old-fashioned pub-style -- and will work with the building's setting within the historic marine commercial area of old Vancouver to provide the decor theme. Hence too, the name.
With any luck, he might even get the place up and operating by the New Year.
We'll drink to that!
