Our travels through the city’s food world for Urban Diner continued over the past 2 weeks capturing Vancouver’s bartenders and their cocktails. Some of the tasty drinks (yes, I had to sample a few) were brand new, only to be found on cocktail programs as of this week, while others are tried and true. My editor, Paul, titled the column “The Rebirth of Cocktail Cool” and these bartenders didn’t disappoint.

Some of the shots are above; you can see more photos and Part 1 of the column on Urban Diner here, and Part 2 here. And if you feel so inclined after trying one of the yummy beverages featured, head down to the according bar (being sure to say hello to the cocktail’s creator) and leave a comment below the column to tell everyone about it!

Happy drinking!

If you keep up with Vancouver’s restaurant scene at all you may have heard of Urban Diner. It is a site that has been bringing the general public updates, events, reviews and general news in the food and beverage scene in our city for a while now. What is new about the site is it’s recent turn to providing a more diverse group of voices from the community on everything that is going on, and we’re proud to be a part of that.

We are now working for Urban Diner to provide a regular and exclusive pictorial column, and the first one has been posted today! Check out “The New Italian” here, and then check out the great restaurants we’ve shot the next time you’re craving Italian.

Enjoy!
