We were in from out of town and someone recommended the Keefer Bar. We went over there after a nice dinner and it blew us away. The decor being an old apothecary that might be slightly gothic was excellent as they have many of the herbs from which they make tinctures and things for their drinks. The food was good... More

I am from the Toronto area and this is the best place for drinks that I have ever been to. Strong, herbal, fragrant and a huge selection. There was a group of 4 of us and I made everyone try something different so I could sample as many as I could before we left. In total we had 9 different... More

Very well thought out concept; fitting to the neighbourhood and history as well as leading the cocktail scene in Van with origanality and execution.

Very cool bar with a huge selection of interesting drinks. Food was ok, but the portions could have been a bit bigger for the price. Really enjoyed the atmosphere and the experience. Would recommend coming here for the drinks, but not sold on the food.

Great drink selection and a great ambiance.... I don't recommend sitting in the first table if there is a burlesque show as you are are almost too close to enjoy the show. But this was a great evening of fun, including dancing...

The dark and mysterious bar is full of mystery and tinctures. The drink menu is large and very interesting. Lovely drinks made from scratch. There is nice outdoor seating but sitting at the bar is really fun. The craft bartenders are fun to watch as well as looking at all the things behind the bar; roots, herbs, tinctures and who...

The best drinks around! The staff was so friendly and accommodating! They knew what to recommend based on a few ingredient hints and really took the time to get to know your tastes. The place was comfortable yet super sexy! Dress up or dress down. Dimly lit with candles, crowded with cool people! A delight little find!

The cocktails here are divine, the snacks tasty and the atmosphere is cosy and trendy. Perfect for a drink before or after the theater or just to meet friends!

Went here with a few friends for a burlesque show. When we arrived it was pretty slow, the server was very attentive and nice. He recommended some fantastic cocktails and tapas for us. The portions were small for the price but the food was fantastic. Unfortunately, as it got busier the server began to ignore my friends and I as... More

We had a lovely time at the Keefer Bar--went early for a drink before dinner. The bar tender, Naveen, was very knowledgeable and listened to what we wanted. He produced cocktails that were inventive and delicious. I thought the mescal Last Word was especially good--lots of layers that came together really well. The bar filled up as we were there...
