Our history

After building and operating the Queens Cross Neighbourhood Pub from 1979 to 1996, Ron Slinger and Dave Raht sold it and created the Black Bear Neighbourhood Pub, which opened for business in Lynn Valley on February 9, 1997. Sadly Dave passed away in 2006, but many of his ideas remain and Ron is now the sole publican. 

The Black Bear's turn-of-the-century craftsman–style design is perfectly at home in this corner of North Vancouver, where calming trees and breathtaking mountain views surround us.

Warm and attractive on the outside, the Bear delivers the same on the inside. With high ceilings, rich woodwork, an inviting stone fireplace and comfortable seating, you can really take the time to relax and enjoy the company of your friends and family - it's almost like you're home.
