Two rooms, each with a little bar, on the top floor. At night, the indoor lighting creates an intimate atmosphere. Music, mercifully, is not too loud. The main attraction is the selection of whiskey, bourbon, gin-based cocktails, some of them designed in the early 1900ies....More

Brian served us up two absolutely fantastic cocktails in this first floor bar/restaurant overlooking the square. Hubby had the cool & refreshing Buck Buck mule and I had a deliciously delicate Jade Statue. Excellent.

This is an upstairs spot in Gastown. Be sure to find this cocktail place. The drinks are deliciously different, the atmosphere is fun and the bar tender is a most interesting and charismatic young woman. It was a fun start to our evening.

A visit to Gastown is like turning back the clock and
stepping into a bygone era. With the distinction of
being Vancouver's oldest neighborhood, the many
plaques that stud the cobbled streets of Gastown tell

else. Having been originally founded around a popular
worker's saloon, it's no wonder that today some of
