The Grain Tasting bar is located in the Hyatt in downtown Vancouver on Robson street. It has a closeable balcony that overlooks the street scene and is fantastic people watching while you sample some local Vancouver beers, feels like your out on the deck.

Staff were extremely polite, bartender spotted me sitting there alone after 5 minutes and rushed over to take a beverage order, apologize, and send a very attractive waitress my way. He was also very well versed on the beers he had and came over later to ask my opinion of the ones I had sampled, very nice fellow. The waitress was also excellent and very attentive and courteous. Definitely will be back! Pizza was good, not great, but I'm not a fan of flat crust. Definitely filled the belly though.
Value was excellent, btw, which was a pleasant surprise for being situated in the Hyatt.

The Grain Tasting Bar is a wonderful place to go for a drink or two with appies to unwind after work. The service was excellent – quick and attentive. The kitchen produced absolutely delicious appies like wood fired pizza with spinach and artichokes, hummus with pita bread, cold cuts and cheeses, spicy smokie sausage with french bread, and smoked tomato bruschetta.

The Grain is a perfect place for friends to meet for drinks and light meal!

I had the Duck, Arugula, Goat Cheese Pizza and it was outstanding! We split the hummus and it was delicious! Hubby had a cheese and meat sampler - which he loved! We had a relaxing, lovely meal sitting by the open wall.... it was a beautiful evening in Vancouver and this was a perfect spot to relax and unwind. The staff was helpful and friendly, the service was fast and yet they never rushed us. Definitely give it a go!

We were staying at the Hotel so went there for an afternoon beer or a nightcap..
We ordered the charcuterie plate which was a nic ecompenement to our early evening drinks.
Modest selection of craft beers on tap.
