Since we first opened in 1995, Steamworks has been a favourite of Vancouver locals and visitors alike. Whether you're joining us for lunch, a drink after work, or a group dinner with friends and colleagues, we're honoured to have you with us.

Steamworks gets its name from the famous Gastown steam line that runs through our premises. The Gastown Brewing Company, which is located onsite and brews Steamworks beers, uses steam to fire its kettles. The instant heat of steam allows for greater brewing finesse, and most importantly great tasting beer. Whether you're in the mood for a thirst quenching Lions Gate® lager, or a full bodied HeriocaTM Oatmeal Stout, we've got a beer to please your palate.

Speaking of palate, our Executive Chef, Andreas Scharfetter, ensures that food doesn't take a back seat at Steamworks. One of the questions I am often asked is "What do you recommend on the menu?" While I can assure you that everything we serve is delicious, our wild BC salmon dishes, (Salmon Caesar Salad, Grilled Salmon Filet and Salmon Wellington) are among my personal favourites. Also deserving of mention is our tasty and lean Lamb Tenderloins.

Steamworks has always been known for its distinctive and eclectic atmosphere. We recently have added a number of rooms that lend themselves perfectly to group events. Our stylish Über Lounge and adjoining atrium are perfect for larger functions. Our more intimate and private Wine Room and Harbour View Room can be used separately or together for either cocktails, dinners or both!

While you're at Steamworks, I invite you to visit our Liquor Store which carries a full selection of quality wines from BC and around the world including Canadian Ice Wine.

Thank you for considering Steamworks during your stay in Vancouver,

Eli Gershkovitch, Principal
