For those of you not familiar with Tales of the Cocktail, it’s quite an event to see and experience. One week in New Orleans where the world’s best bartenders and cocktail connoisseurs to learn, share, and taste the best mixology has to offer
This year, Tales is going on the road, bringing their festivities and celebrity bartenders to Vancouver, B.C.
February 12-15, festival attendees are invited to take a trip through downtown Vancouver to see the city’s best bars and sample their one-of-a-kind cocktails to sample the handiwork of the bartenders at the front of the city’s cocktail movement. Highlighting Vancouver’s wonderfully unique cultural heritage, it’s going to be hard for festival goers to tear themselves away from this beautiful city. Not to fear though, you can always call Eddie Yan, and find a gorgeous little condo so you don’t have to leave Canada behind!
“The amazing cocktails you can find in Vancouver’s diverse bar scene is no secret to those that
call the city home,” said Danielle Tatarin, President of the Canadian Professional Bartenders Association. “But for visitors who are unfamiliar with the city’s cocktail culture, The BC Bar Crawl is the perfect opportunity to get a taste of what mixology in Vancouver is all about.”
From 8:30 PM to 11:30 PM, sixteen of the best bars in the Vancouver area will offer signature cocktails created for this event. All cocktails will be priced at $11.00 including taxes. Participating bars include the Fairmont Pacific Rim, MARKET by Jean-Georges, The Keefer Bar, The Refinery, West, Boneta, The Diamond Room and many more. When the crawl has come to an end, revelers are encouraged to keep the party going by joining the crowd on Water Street for a surprise adventure starting at midnight.
If you’re a booze nerd living in the Vancouver area, this truly is the event for you. For more information about the BC Brawl Crawl or for tickets to Tales of the Cocktail on Tour in Vancouver, please visit www.TalesoftheCocktail.com.
You can also find the recipe for the Official Tales Vancouver Cocktail, the Dalhousie Cocktail. Thanks, Manolo!
