People who love bourbon are going to love Pourhouse and its classic Old Fashioned, but really all the cocktails here are top-notch. The Gastown neighborhood has the best bars and nightlife in Vancouver, and this spot is the best of the lot with several renditions of negronis, Manhattans, daiquiris, and martinis. There’s much more than just cocktails happening here though, as they have a great boozy brunch, daily Happy Hour that runs from 3-6pm and again from 10pm until close, and some great food. Go for the oozing Scotch egg encased in fennel sausage and crispy panko crumbs, charred king oyster mushrooms with pumpkin seed chimichurri and celeriac purée, and the baked-to-order hazelnut ganache-stuffed chocolate cookies that come with a side of whiskey cream milk punch.
