The team behind the Fraserhood’s popular, sports-loving Bells and Whistles are opening a second location deep in Vancouver’s West Side later this summer.
Gooseneck Hospitality’s James Iranzad, Josh Pape and Nick Miller have taken possession of the old Dunbar Public House space at 4497 Dunbar Street (at West 29th Avenue) and currently in the midst of a cosmetic overhaul of the interior that will see it transformed into a new location of Bells and Whistles. On my walk-through of the site last week James told me they’d signed the deal on the 1,500 sqft space in June. (The group also owns and operates Gastown’s Wildebeest, Kerrisdale and Edgemont Village’s Bufala pizzerias and Kitslano’s Lucky Taco.)

When it launches in August, the new Bells and Whistles will feature 48 seats inside and another 36 on the adjacent patio (accessed via a garage door) with a massive screen for viewing games and sporting events (one at a time) behind the bar. They’re still determining exactly how much of the original menu will be on offer, but frankly there are so many well conceived home run comforts on it that it wouldn’t be crazy to expect there will be many, such as the All-Day Breakfast Sandwich.
