This is incredibly sad. We had planned on having our wedding reception in this tavern....
I was scared when they closed the Tavern they'd close the Alehouse... and they did :(
The Tavern was great. It def had a less polished feel. I'm guessing that Commercial Drive had higher rent, hence its earlier closure.
The problem with a business like this is there is *no* pivot, and the rent increases due to a new skytrain were too much.
It's a lesson in how hard it is for a small business.
