VANCOUVER — Botanist Bar, located inside of the Fairmont Pacific Rim, has ranked No.24 on North America’s 50 Best Bars List for 2024. This is second-consecutive year the bar has been recognized by the global authority.

“To be recognized on this list for a second year in a row speaks volumes about Botanist Bar’s constant pursuit of creativity,” says Grant Sceney, Creative Beverage director at Fairmont Pacific Rim. “It’s a reflection of all the people that have been a part of its seven-year journey.”

Botanist is celebrating its recognition by hosting The Clumsies, ranked No.47 on the World’s Best Bars list in 2023, for a collaborative cocktail experience on May 15 and 16 in Vancouver. On May 15, Botanist executive chef Hector Laguna will design a six-course Mediterranean-inspired tasting menu, paired with a cocktail menu developed by Sceney and The Clumsies team.

On May 16, The Clumsies’ bar manager, Nick Sourmpatis, and bartender Georgopoulos Lefteris, will lead an informative discussion on the current global trends facing the cocktail and spirit industry in the Botanist Garden, followed by a four-course tasting menu with cocktail pairings by both teams at Botanist Bar.

The 2024 ranking is reflective of the best bar experiences collated by a group of 250 anonymous voters, made up of cocktail experts, educators, authors, journalists, bartenders, and bar owners from across North America. For this vote, the continent is divided into seven regions: Canada East; Canada West; U.S. Northeast; U.S. Midwest; U.S. West; U.S. South; Mexico and the Caribbean.
