Or maybe the profit margin between "ethically raised, organic grass-fed (insert animal protein name here)" and the selling price wasn't enough to keep the business afloat.

If there is a growing percentage of the population who want to buy animal protein which reflects their values, then why is there a problem with the purchase price? Oh wait...it's unaffordable.

They seem to produce really great looking spaces, but despite the decor it all feels super inauthentic. They hype these places on social media months in advance, which puts so much pressure on them to deliver...

Good news for this restaurant group: They can still honour their values by sourcing from Cumbraes.

That's great news. Thanks for sharing. NE
P.S. Hope they keep the bar intact, they got craftsmen from Ireland to construct it.

That's a big space to fill. Slainte kind of lost its way when it became in some ways a dance club towards the end.

I went to 33 Bowen on Sunday.

The old bar is still there, it's just been moved to the upper floor which is the "events space". They have room for a band up there, whereas the main floor is more of a typical restaurant vibe.

Entire place is pretty nice. It was my first time in the building so I'm not sure what it looked like before, but there's a ton of exposed wood, brick and stone.

Food was good, although they have no fries, only potato wedges, which made my wife's fish and chips a bit weird/disappointing. As far as beer goes, they had 1 from Collective Arts and 1 from Shawn & Eds, but the rest (they have a ton of taps, 20+ I think) was all typical mainstream choices.

Hi there,
The bar they kept upstairs is the one that was upstairs when Slainte was in business. The bar from downstairs was definitely taken away, I was there tonight and the waitress confirmed it was removed but does not know what they did with it. Im glad they have the one upstairs, too bad about the downstairs one, it was a beaut! NE

Unique Restaurant group has always been known for their relative lack of craft beer (although they often have pseudo craft beers like Granville Island).

Ahh, my bad. They told me the "old bar" was upstairs but I'd never been before so didn't have the context.
