We were so very excited, as always, to open this month's issue of Discorder Magazine, and even more excited to find Six Acres voted as reader's #1 "Favourite Place to Go For a Drink"!!
We couldn't be more honoured and humbled by the peers from which we were selected, and really glad you love the Acreage as much as we do.

Many thanks for all of your support! We'll be looking forward to having a drink with you soon!

Going for Gold!

It's that time again!!
Voting for the Georgia Staight's Golden Plate Awards is underway.

If you feel like we are the best-est (and, by the way, we really think you are the best-est), then shoot a few votes our way!!
Be it Best Pub, Best Import Beer List, or maybe even Best Restaurant Bathroom - no matter what, you can be assured that each one of those little votes will give us that really special, embarrassingly warm feeling (you know the one).

Bathroom Audio Contest


Going to the washroom at Six Acres can be an interesting experience. Whether it's Captain Nemo hijacking your lip gloss, or the call of a water buffalo shaking your focus. Whether it's an unexpected lesson in conversational Hindi, or the apocalyptic broadcast of an extra terrestrial war. Whatever the occasion, there's always something to keep you company in your most private moments.

With this in mind, we present a NEW CONTEST. Submit your favourite strangeness, bits of humour or dashes of intrigue. Bring it on, get crazy! In exchange for the winning effort, we offer 100 ACRES DOLLARS for your eating & drinking pleasure. You can send an MP3 or compressed file to, drop by a CD, or..? Please ensure that we have your contact information, and good luck!
