“Every game, every home game, we are full with a lineup out the door. The atmosphere has just been electric,” Murray Saunders, General Manager of Shark Club Bar & Grill Vancouver shared in a recent interview with CBC. “This year, people are excited, there’s a positive vibe downtown this Summer. I can’t wait to see them (The Canucks) go through many rounds, I’m hoping they go all the way.”

2024 has been a fantastic year for the all-inclusive restaurant brand. For the 3rd year in a row, they have been bestowed with the title of ‘Best Sports Bar’ by the renowned Vancouver is Awesome Readers Choice Awards. This annual contest was established to allow local readers to vote for their favourite services, products, and experiences that are based in Vancouver. Best of all, it is also a chance for the public recognition and celebration of those who continue to showcase excellence to their guests.

At Shark Club, it’s about living in the moment for fans of all sports, shows, and events. A true home-grown brand, they aim to strike the perfect balance between sports bar classics & signature menu items, while providing all the comforts of true Canadian hospitality.

“Our team members are excited and the energy of the games has been really good for them. COVID hit everybody really hard and a lot of people ended up leaving the restaurant industry. So for the Canadian teams to be doing as well as they are in playoffs, combined with our recently received Vancouver Is Awesome award, it’s given us the chance to get back to doing what we do best,” explains Murray.
