The Diamond Vancouver | Gastown Cocktails, Happy Hour & Night cap

The Diamond Gastown Vancouver Cocktails Supper

The Diamond Vancouver is located on the second floor at Maple Tree Square in Gastown. It is kiddie corner to Six Acres, Chill Winston and L’abattoir. The Diamond is a great place for cocktails, happy hour and night cap. The Diamond, co-owner Josh Pape also owns Wildebeest with co-owner James Iranzad. Josh Pape was a bartender at Chambar previously and James Iranzad owns Abigail’s Party and Cartel Taco.

 

The ambiance at The Diamond is cozy and has an old school vibe with brass, brick wall and aged windows. Cocktails and highballs are skillfully handcrafted and there is a good selection of wine and beer.

I welcome Absinthe, Campari, Vermout, and Bourbon during Happy Hour (on a Tuesday that feels like another Monday. Though the drinks are wonderful, though I can’t seem to say the same about the food. We ordered an assortment of Prawn ceviche, four cheese dip and some hand-cut salsa and chips. All seemed very standard, bland and felt more from a branded jar at your local grocery store. French Fries are missing from the menu and would be a great additional – especially with some homemade ketchup! Nonetheless, nothing a great tasting Bicicletta or Moscow Mule can’t forgive.

Bicicletta #2 $10: Campari, Italian Vermouth, Gerwurztraminer, Grapefruit Twist. A boozy drink semi bitter but delicious. I do like an Old Fashioned finish from time to time.

Moscow Mule $15: lime juice, vodka, ginger beer. The Diamond uses premium Absolut Vodka hence the slap in price tag. This is a perfect summer drink. It can be easily made at home too with this simple Moscow Mule Recipe.  I also recommend the Isabella: sparkling wine, mango and ginger basil. Or the Penicillin.

Tricycle Grapefruit Radler: Try this sweet / sour combination of a Radler from Parallel 49 Brewing Co. Pours a cloudy peach color with bittersweet profiles of grapefruit and less apparent beer lager base. Surely I could polish a few without feeling like I’m drinking booze. 3.0% alcohol slightly more than my favorite Grapefruit Stiegl Radler.

After a few drinks, are you grammatically correct? Cheers to a good night!
