I started this blog to share my journey and knowledge about the world of craft cocktails and liquors.
First off I want to mention my personal favorites list of Cocktail bars in Vancouver.
- Pourhouse (162 Water Street)
- Clough Club (212 Abbott Street)
- L’ Abbatoir (217 Carrall Street) – Head bartender, Shaun Layton.
- The Diamond (6 Powell Street, 2nd Fl)
- Boneta (12 Water St)
- George Lounge (1137 Hamilton Street)
The bartenders at these bars serve cocktails on a different level than your typical restaurant/bar. Knowledge and skills wise.

- West (2881 Granville Street). Home to David Wolowidnyk, probably Canada’s top bartender. I had the honor of meeting him while he was working at West. Simply an amazing individual with extensive knowledge of everything to do with alcohol and more.
- Keefer Bar (135 Keefer Street)
- Hawksworth (801 West Georgia Street, The Rosewood Hotel Georgia)
