If you’ve been to Uptown lately, you may have noticed some construction going on above the boulevard. 

The new addition to the shopping centre has been in the works for years, but soon we will finally see the plans come to fruition. 

BC’s newest location of the Canadian Brewhouse, a Canadian themed sports bar, will open at Uptown this summer, marking the sixth location in the province and the first on Vancouver Island.

The chain began with its first location in West Edmonton in 2002. Now, 20 years later, the sports bar has expanded to over 40 locations across Canada.

In 2019, a proposal for the two-story restaurant which includes a bowling alley, received unanimous approval from Saanich council. 

The plans were soon put on hold, however, due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Now, construction of the new location is well underway, with hiring fairs planned in the coming weeks.

Uptown’s Canadian Brewhouse location will be a two-storey restaurant with seating for over 600 people, encompassing dining and bar seating, bowling lanes, billiards and batting cages. 

There will also be a rooftop patio!
