The Pacific Ocean Bar Crawl (4-11 October 2020)
The Pacific Ocean Bar Crawl
One dream. Twelve Adventurers. One Hundred Bars...
Join us for a bar crawl adventure to remember! Our journey starts in the Pacific Northwest from Vancouver, British Columbia in Canada and then continues on to Seattle, Portland, San Francisco and Los Angeles! You'll witness some of the USA's most distinctive cities along the Pacific Ocean, the most spectacular natural attractions and most importantly, the best pubs and bars they have to offer! This is a true bar and pub extravaganza as we explore some of the best and quirkiest drinking spots in the US of A!
Sunday 4 October 2020: Arrival in Canada
Arrive at leisure in Vancouver BC and check into our centrally located hotel.
You will meet up with the other Beer Adventurers in the lobby at 6.00pm for a tour briefing and, most importantly, the start of a crawl of the best pubs in the city!
Monday 5 October 2020 : Vancouver BC
Our first stop of the day will be a downtown Sunday church service with an award-winning gospel choir! Joining in with the singing and head swaying is compulsory...
From cocktail spots to hard-partying clubs, Vancouver's bar scene is diverse: there really is something for everyone! So after our gospel enlightenment, we will check out five districts of the city concentrated with a superb selection of bars and pubs: Granville Street, Yaletown, Gastown, Kitsilano and Main Street/SoMa.
If we have time between our bar hopping we can also become pirates for a few hours with swashbuckling with Pirate Adventures! A sunset booze cruise around Vancouver's harbour is also an option.
Tuesday 6 October 2020: Seattle, Washington
Today is all about exploring this breath-taking landscape as well as the local beer!
An early start as we catch the Amtrak Cascades train to Seattle. There's no better way to experience the sheer grandeur of the North American continent than by rail! We will see long stretches of the stunning Pacific shoreline, views you won’t get from the highway.
We arrive in Seattle late morning and transfer to our boutique hotel.
Seattle offers a superb number of options, from jazz clubs to speak-easies and the so called 'Emerald City' has endless options for a lively pub crawl! Like Vancouver, there are neighbourhoods with different types and styles of bars: Capitol Hill, Belltown, Downtown, Georgetown and Ballard. We will try our best to check them all out!
Wednesday 7 October 2020: Portland, Oregon
An early start as we take the train to Portland, Oregon.
After a late morning arrival we check into our hotel.
Forget the food, the music and arts scenes in Portland and its proximity to mountains and oceans. The actual BEST thing about Portland is the beer! Portland is home to dozens of craft breweries and some of the most talented, creative brewers in the world! Both their competitive streaks and their community-minded urges have driven them to make some seriously delicious brews. Today we will hunt them down and discover a selection of 'beer heaven'!
Thursday 8 October 2020: San Francisco, California
We take a mid morning flight to San Francisco.
Transfer to our downtown hotel.
Although we have already discovered the wonders of beer in Seattle and Portland, San Francisco is said to be the birthplace of the craft beer movement. Today, we will check out ten of the very best breweries in the city, travelling via the metro, cable cars and Uber.
Friday 9 October 2020: Los Angeles, California
Early morning flight to Los Angeles.
Transfer to our hotel in Santa Monica.
Today we can chill out on the beach and discover funky Venice. Santa Monica is home to every type of bar and every breed of drinker! The bar scene here is much more relaxed than the rest of Los Angeles. The dress code is much more casual and getting in depends less on who you know and more on what time you arrive!
Luckily Santa Monica is full of English pubs - they are everywhere! We will try our best to check them out as well as the finest dive bars this part of the city has to offer!
Saturday 10 October 2020: Las Vegas, Nevada
Early morning flight to Las Vegas.
This famous city of sin has plenty of places to imbibe! Smiling Grape's favourite area is downtown Fremont Street, perfect for craft beers, margaritas or how about scorpion tequila shots? We will also check out some of the coolest spots, including the Bellagio, Cosmopolitan and New-York casinos as well as Las Vegas' finest dive bars. Wherever we decide to go, we will have an epic time in this crazy 24 hour city!
Sunday 11 October 2020: Denver, Colorado
End of tour.
For those heading back to London, we recommend joining us for a stop-over pub crawl in Denver, Colorado where we will have about six hours for a final blow out in this exciting city! From tap houses, dive bars to cocktail speakeasys, we will find some of the best spots for your drinking pleasure.
