Community Taps and Pizza is Commercial Drive‘s newest restaurant, a community-oriented eatery where Vancouverites can enjoy a casual beer with friends or celebrate a special occasion over pizza.
Located at 1191 Commercial Drive, the restaurant seats approximately 200 guests with both indoor and outdoor spaces, including a newly expanded street patio that looks out to a hand-painted mural by local artist Chairman Ting, paying homage to the culture and excitement of the East Vancouver neighbourhood.
The menu, created by Chef Steven Ewing, will tempt guests with an assortment of traditional and global pizzas inspired by New York, Detroit-style pizzas and the amazing Vancouver pizza community. The pizzas are cooked with dough fermented for 72 hours and baked in a pizza oven specially imported from Europe. Gluten-free, vegetarian and vegan options are available, along with an assortment of unique, housemade dips to pair alongside the pizzas.
A large selection of appetizers include locally sourced meatballs, cauliflower fritters, and wings. Salads, meatballs and fresh pasta, as well as a variety of iconic handhelds such as chicken parmesan sandwiches, round out the menu. To put a spin on the classic chicken parmesan offerings, Chef Ewing has put together various sandwich options to choose from, including traditional, spicy and vodka sauce.
“We’re very excited to bring Community Taps and Pizza to The Drive, and we hope to become a core part of the community here. Beyond the menu and drinks, we’ve cultivated an interactive atmosphere and wanted to offer a location for local artists and creatives to gather.” – Steffanie Davis, General Manager, Community Taps & Pizza.
The drink menu at Community includes over 40 beer taps carefully curated with a selection of local and seasonal brews. In addition, Community’s wine program will shine a light on local BC wineries along with eight wines on tap. Guests can also enjoy access to the Community Beer & Wine to-go fridge, an ideal option for The Drive community to enjoy beyond dining-in.
Community Taps and Pizza will be open seven days a week for brunch, lunch and dinner service. For more information and menu details, visit: communitypizza.ca.
