Wondering where all the men are at 3 p.m. on a Wednesday?
Try the long bar at the new Joeys
Bentall: Wall-to-wall eligible bachelors in suits quaffing pints in
the former bank and trading stock tips on the white marble bar top amid
an art installation from Amsterdam (thats surrealism, Vancouver-style).
We recommend heading next door to the airy adjoining Wine Bar (pictured)
featuring Philippe Starck’s gold-plated AK47 lights, Jeremy Cole’s
blossom lights and over 60 wines by the glass (from $6 to $120 for
Chateau Pomerol) dispensed from an Italian Enomatic. Pair your Riesling
with the lobster grilled cheese dipped in cocktail sauce (brilliant!)
and your weeks woes are behind you.
Do check the custom wallpaper by Vancouvers Rollout
in the loos: The mens features spiders, while the womens features flies.
One question: Shouldnt it be the other way around, Charlotte?
