The Pit Pub UBC is located at 6133 University Boulevard. It is safe to say that if you can’t find your friends on a Wednesday night, they’re probably at The Pit. This past year, it went through a huge renovation moving into the Nest, and giving it a brand new, chic look. With a giant AV wall, a fancy new sound system, and a drink list carrying a variety of local craft beer, The Pit will once again be THE place on campus to watch the game, have a drink, meet your friends and (most likely) embarrass yourself.
