People wear hiking outfits everywhere they go in Vancouver. On the way to the office? North Face backpack. Date night? Arc’teryx shell. Birthday celebration? Blundstones. If all the Gore-Tex is starting to get to you, and you also happen to have a lot of money and a special occasion to celebrate, you should head to Hawksworth. It’s inside the very fancy Hotel Georgia, and is one of the only restaurants in Vancouver with a dress code. You’ll find what sounds like standard Canadian food here, things like oysters, scallops, and duck, but your plate will come out looking like it took someone two days to decorate. And if you’re looking for somewhere you can continue wearing your bowtie without needing to make up a story about having just come from a wedding, head downstairs for a negroni at the hotel’s equally-fancy speakeasy, Prohibition (open Thursday to Saturday).
