The busy entrepreneur is also an award-winning film producer and co-owner of the top-rated Gastown eatery, Bauhaus Restaurant
Entrepreneur Natalie Boll, the recent recipient of the Business in Vancouver 40 under 40 Award, has opened Kitsilano’s newest neighbourhood restaurant pub, The Blenheim Pub, on Vancouver’s Westside. Co-owner of the successful Bauhaus Restaurant and busy mother of three, Natalie spends part of the year in Germany, and noticed that many European restaurants are much more kid-friendly. She wanted to bring that atmosphere to Vancouver so her customers can have a casual meal with their children, where both parents and kids alike can enjoy dining out.
Natalie fondly recalls the Little Nest Café on Commercial Drive, where a vibrant kid-friendly environment was brought to life. “When my daughter was young, I used to spend my weekends at the Little Nest Cafe. I was so sad when it closed, but always loved the concept. So now at the Blenheim Pub I wanted to have the same concept and incorporate a nice kids area and kids menus. I created a casual place where families could enjoy a delicious meal that was set up for both the parents and the kids,” says Natalie.
Newly renovated, The Blenheim Pub décor features local Kitsilano artist Richard Herrington. The menu is not only kid-friendly and healthy, but has all the favorites that parents look for when selecting a family restaurant. Popular items on the menu are the rustic pizza, signature Blenheim burger and the schnitzel sandwich. At night, The Blenheim Pub is a popular neighborhood pub for people to get-together after a long day at work.
“Living between Vancouver and Germany I realized that Vancouver did not have as many restaurants with kids areas like the Germans do. Vancouver is expensive. Childcare is expensive. We have kept the prices with family budgets in mind at The Blenheim Pub. We want the community to come together so parents have places to go with their kids and not have to hire childcare just to go out and have a meal with healthy choices,” says Natalie.
If opening this restaurant didn’t keep her busy enough, Natalie is also director/producer of the award winning feature documentary “Maker of Monsters: The Extraordinary Life of Beau Dick”, that is scheduled to have a Canadian wide release in Cineplex Theatres on March 29th.
Maker of Monsters: The Extraordinary Life of Beau Dick is a portrait of a Canadian art legend, Beau Dick, an enigmatic carver from a small remote village on the Northwest Coast of British Columbia. His remarkable masks have been celebrated across the global art scene as vibrant expressions of West Coast Indigenous culture and a sophisticated crossover into the contemporary art world. Dick had an unprecedented ability to tap into the collective memory of his people and breathe new life into age-old traditions.
The Blenheim Pub is open 7 days a week from 11:30 AM until late. The restaurant is located at 3293 W 4th Ave in Vancouver, BC.
