BarFly's Review of Chronis

This place is like a second home to me. The staff are super friendly and the karaoke is killer! Whoever wrote before about how the karaoke sucks hasn't been there recently. It has all been updated with a multimedia display and tracks fresh off the Top Hits billboard. The bartenders are so nice and the DJ is also the most kick ass, friendly person you have ever met as well as an extremely talented singer. Come to Chronis' and you'll have strong drinks, pool tables, darts, lotto, a good time, and lots of good singers to keep you entertained.
Alot has been improved over the past years and the KJ updates her music consitantly!! If u cant find a song just ask..guarantee if she doesnt have it, she will get it for the next time!! The sound is good! This place has a great friendly atmosphere! Appearance wise, ill give it a 5 but for the most part...its fun, friendly, and they definitely have GREAT drinks! So I give this place a thumbs up for a relaxing, all around fun place! No clicks here!! Come down and see for yourself!
I enjoy the drinks and people here, but the karaoke - sucks! The system is bad, the selection is bad, the rotation - okay that's decent most of the time. They definitely need to update their selection I don't think they have anything new from the last 4 or 5 years.
I have been to Chronis many times. I really like it in there. It feels like a neighborhood bar. I have always found the staff to be friendly. I have noticed at least 1/2 the bar customers are regulars and have been there pretty much every time I go in there and they do seem to like to keep to themselves and not be too friendly to new people - but so what! There are plenty of other friendly customers and I have always met people and had fun in there. I do wish they would update their karaoke selection. They really really need a wider selection. However, lots of people sing some really great classic rock songs that you rarely hear in karaoke. If you go in during meal time - they have some unique awesome Greek food.
The place isnt clickish at all, they just enjoy getting to know new people. I was new to the neighborhood, and they took me in like i was a old friend.. wish i still lived near there,
Great Food and atmosphere if you like sports. Yes, it may seem to be clickish as the bar owner can become friends with the patrons as he is a very likeable guy and she is just as likeable .... until you piss them off. And as a business owner they have that right. As far as drinking "every night", not so. He actually sits and visits just to get to know people without drinking. They do have business there daily but take off about 2-3 days a week. People from out of town have stopped in and enjoyed the fun and carefree atitudes amoung some of the bartenders. Come in with a good attitude and they will treat you with a good attitude.
I stop into this place on occasion, when I'm in the neighborhood. The crowd is very clickish and are friends of the owner. I know this because he is sitting with them drinking every night. The service is fair and the prices are reasonable. Compared to the other entertainment choices in downtown Vancouver, this is as good a place as any to get wrecked.
