Built into prominence by noted bartender Shawn Soole (now the owner of Little Jumbo), this cocktail-focused lounge remains a spirited force with duo Kate McDonald and Jayce Kadyschuk behind the wood. Take respite – shaken or stirred – with offerings from Tiki to global to classic, or throw caution to the wind with an on-the-fly creation. A small-plates menu hits the right notes with Kobe beef sliders, barbecue ribs, and poutine with Qualicum cheese curds and house chicken gravy.
