This is absolutely the best place to enjoy whiskey in the city. Whiskey is a newly acquired taste for me and my enjoyment only developed because of the tastings I did at the Shebeen.
The Shebeen offers a wide selection of top-shelf whisky that you can not find at any other bar in Vancouver. The last time I was in the Shebeen the bartender explained to me that they have the highest value top shelf in the city of Vancouver. Now, don’t let this scare you off, I am not a man who has the financial means to spend a small nation’s GDP on a glass of whisky. The Shebeen offers a whisky selection that will satisfy any taste and price point. The bartenders are some of the most whisky knowledgeable that I have ever met.
The Shebeen is hidden behind the Irish Heather (probably the best Irish bar in Vancouver). When you go to the Shebeen you really get the feeling that you are going into a back alley bootleg bar. But this is a high-class place where whisky beginners and experts come together to share in the pastime of whisky tasting and drinking.
