AfterMath, the restaurant and bar located in UFV’s Envision Athletics Centre, has reopened after undergoing changes which include new menu items, promotions, and events.
Restaurant manager Adi Brar explains that one of the new changes at AfterMath is the speed of service.
“We had some feedback that the service was slightly slow. The menu has changed to make it much faster,” he says. The new menu includes a grab-and-go section of ready-made foods including sandwiches, pizza, and calzones.
AfterMath has also expanded its drink menu. Brar shared that they decided to carry imported beer to appeal to a larger variety of students.
“One suggestion was that we should get imported beer because we have lots of international students coming,” Brar says. The bar now offers beers from almost all over the world, including Vancouver’s own Granville Island Brewery, which features a different beer every season. Customers can also try the four-beer sampler, where they can try four different kinds of beer for under $8. In addition, some of the beers that were only available in bottles last year are now available on tap, resulting in lower prices.
Although there aren’t any more major changes planned for the near future, Brar said they are open to feedback and ideas.
“If anything is brought to a server or a manager’s attention, we talk it over right there, discuss it among everyone and solve the issue,” Brar said. “There will definitely be constant changes as people react to things, including different promotions and menu foods.”
AfterMath will also host more shows this year. The campus lounge often features local bands, and this semester it will be host a variety of additional events, including a comedy show on Thursday, September 11. Clubs and associations can also book AfterMath for their own functions.
“There will be a lot more events and a lot of participation from clubs and associations,” said Brar. “We’re trying to be open and friendly, and accessible to them.”
