Big Sparkler

July 8, 2009

Marilyn would say diamonds are a girls best friend, and wed agree, only
our Diamond looks
good and serves up drinks too.

The bar, in the classic, cool sense of the word, is a Gastown gem right
out of the gate. As soon as you ascend its dark staircase, nab the far
corner table that gives a prime view of the Gassy Jack landmark, as well
as the interior bedecked in brick, custom diamond wallpaper and a bit of
tropical verdure.

Make the cocktail menu your personality test. Broken into boozy,
refreshing, delicate, proper, notorious and not so boozy sections, with
icons of the glass they come in, we turned out refreshingly tall and
short on notorious thanks to signature drink Colins Lawn ($7) combining
sake, vodka, Kaffir lime, mint and soda. To ensure we didnt turn
scandalous, we filled up on above par bar snacks like handmade pork and
shitake gyoza ($5) and citrusy rock cod ceviche ($12).

Looks like we’ve found the perfect place to mine for a flawless
sparkler. Huge rock, anyone?

The Diamond, 6 Powell St., Vancouver,
