False Creek's Irish Revival

Friday, May 09, 2014


Back in 2008, restaurant entrepreneur Bob Lindsay tried to borrow $4.5 million to renovate his celebrated Monk McQueens restaurant on False Creek. The global financial meltdown kiboshed that plan, but this summer…over 5 years later, that coveted piece of waterfront is welcoming brand new, Irish tenants.


The Mahony & Sons Irish Pub team is planning a complete overhaul of the 250-seat restaurant that first opened during Expo 86. Be prepared for floor-to-ceiling windows and a massive patio that will seat close to 300 diners and drinkers.  You can also expect Mahony to provide the same solid pub brews and fare served at UBC and the Convention Centre; under the watchful eye of their great-great-great-grandfather Barney – who appears on every menu.  

Now, when it comes to creating a successful restaurant, everyone knows it all about location, location, location - and real estate is no different.  That’s why we are so excited about our new False Creek listing that just happens to be within walking distance of this soon-to-be hotspot. Meet #302 - 650 Moberly Rd.




#302 - 650 Moberly Rd

This class condo located in the Edgewater Building is nestled into False Creek South, and one of the few Freehold Loft properties in the area. It’s rain-screened, two level and as charming as an Irish yarn. Worth a CHEERS or two if you ask us!
