We have a lot of pub in English Canada being a former colony and all and a major destination from emigrants from the British Isles for a long time, but honestly, now that your question forced me to think about it, what makes a pub a pub rather than just a bar? In my experience, I would describe as a bar where one can talk and sit with friends while drinking rather than being bombarded with music or overly crowded like a normal club or bar and with typical British pub decor. However, certain types of American taverns and bars also match that description so I don't know. So horribly off-topic but it was an interesting question.
