CAT'S EYE: Two Lions Public House in North Van
The new year is always a good time for a little resolution and change. Such is the case with a North Vancouver entertainment group that is anxious to bring the party back all year long. The Two Lions Public House, formerly known as the Mosquito Creek Bar & Grill, has swung open its doors to a new crowd, new menu and new attitude. Now owned by the Jennings Hospitality & Culture Group (which also own the Narrows Pub, London Pub, Caffe Brixton and The Manchester), the establishment has been renovated in more ways than one. Comfort food, local beers, hockey games and karaoke are all still there, as is the live music roster which will include appearances by former Roxy house band Joe’s Garage. The opening night party took place last week where friends and guests were invited for a sneak peek look at what’s in store.
