A deep dive and fun chat for this one with the co-owners of Greta, Gastown's newest Arcade Bar. Taking over in the old Bourbon on Cordova Street, Chris Decock and Casey Greabeiel reimagine the close to 9,000 square feet of space with a bustling high energy concept of arcade games, cocktails and signature fare. Taking cues from their two previous Greta iterations in both Calgary and Edmonton, Chris and Casey have helped to revitalize a dormant space while giving Vancouver a fun bar for everyone to enjoy.
I spoke with the two of them recently to learn more of why they came to Vancouver, what their concept was, how they got it off the ground and how they hoped to establish themselves within the community. If you're one of the few who has yet to check out Greta, you're sure to enjoy this chat as both Chris and Casey give plenty of insights and enthusiasm.
Do check out their website and head on down. I've been several times and it's a lot of fun.
