Whiskey Six BBQ
Whiskey Six BBQ is a distributor of organic barbecue, brown beer, and locally sourced ingredients. Whiskey Six BBQ combines classic barbecue with organic ingredients sourced from nearby farms and suppliers. They want to reimagine what can be built on the grill and smoker by challenging the conventional view of barbecue without sacrificing on quality ingredients. Whiskey Six BBQ is named after the McLaughlin H44 Buick, also known as “The Whiskey Six,” which was the rum-running muscle car of the 1920s. We sell a variety of brown whiskey from Vancouver’s own locally brewed distilleries and local craft breweries, as well as a variety of fine whiskies from around the world, to honor the country’s bootlegging past.

“It was such a fun experience. The food is absolutely phenomenal. I appreciate all the side dishes served with the BBQ meat, as they all compliment the BBQ itself. Service is friendly with prompt and informed delivery as well as service with a smile. Seating is not accessible for folks with mobility barriers but I believe the seats are comfortable for larger bodies. Bathrooms are clean and modern with brick walls. The establishment itself is clean and modern with an atmosphere that is casual and lively. Great for groups smaller then seven.” – Silver Stevens

“Excellent food, excellent service. Excellent place to experience Japanese hospitality and food. I am surprised by how well trained and attentive our server was without being “in your face” distracting/annoying. He simply observe, noticing the sign and attend us when needed. He also give us detail recommendations, instructions and tips on how to cook the meat perfectly. This is something we don’t normally at in Canada and it makes us feel like we are in Japan again.” – Alex Cheng
Yook Korean Grilled BBQ & Bistro
Yook Korean Grilled BBQ & Bistro is a result of a desire to prepare delicious meals. Cooking food slowly and steadily is both satisfying and calming. It encourages them to calm down and take a break from their hectic lives, allowing them to focus on one thing while forgetting about the others. They’ve always loved serving their food to friends and relatives, and shortly after, people began asking them to prepare “the amazing BBQ food” for them. Their fame began to spread solely by word of mouth, and soon they were receiving more and more catering orders.

“I had the pulled rib sandwich and it was so good it actually made me cry. I used to work for a BBQ pit master back in the states who’s BBQ is rivalled by few. I’d been on the search for legit BBQ for four years since moving to Vancouver and none of come close…until this blessed day. I could taste the smoke, the sauce was fantastic, the crispy edges added the perfect texture and no word of lie I was transported back in time to when I was slinging BBQ again. Some of my favourite memories. THANK YOU, I’ll be back but I can’t promise I won’t cry every time I eat that sandwich.” – Rachael Coakley
