Taste and sip through the historic Gastown district, Vancouver’s most vibrant restaurant scene and Canada’s cocktail capitol. Expect award- winning restaurants, inventive dishes, eccentric personalities, and inspiring decor.
We begin our evening at a local brew pub for a local beer tasting with food pairing. Craft beer tour is not only a trend, it’s a passion for many, including our well-versed guides. We compliment the 3 craft beers with signature appetizers to showcase the Westcoast flavours.
Take a stroll in the neighbourhood and become acquainted with the hottest restaurants, hidden cocktail nooks, and historical landmarks.
The next stop is a lavish craft cocktail bar with old-world charms. Decked out in vests and ties, the expert barkeeps shake up classical cocktails while expanding on the history and techniques. Time-honoured canapés are served, each with a story of its own. The interactive and bartenders have much knowledge to impart about the art of imbibing.
Next, follow your guide into an inconspicuous, pebble stone back alley where two hidden gems are tucked away from everyday tourists.
When your appetite is fully tickled, sample 3 BC wines alongside local farm charcuterie and cheeses from an ever-changing chalkboard menu. Nearby BC farms produce award-winning meat and cheese products that cannot be missed.
Then hop a few steps over to a modern, upscale Chinese dining lounge. Entice your tastebuds with innovative classics that push the envelope. We pair an Asian-inspired cocktail with the intricate plates for a truly unique experience.
