Restaurant Buzz: Prohibition


801 West Georgia St.

The Roaring Twenties are back at Prohibition— Vancouver’s $3.5-million vaulted cocktail bar located below the elegant Rosewood Hotel Georgia.  Owned by Vancouver’s Delta Land Development, the 151-seat establishment features sleek interiors by Toronto’s Munge Leung with ceilings clad in macassar ebony, a black stone bar and a custom-designed glass-andmetal chandelier. Bartender Brad Stanton’s collection of custom craft cocktails range from the traditional Prohibition Cocktail, featuring Dorothy Parker gin, Cocchi Americano, Abricot du Roussillon, fresh orange, lemon zest ($14) to bolder concoctions such as The Malahat, featuring coconut-oil “washed” Cuban rum, Gosling’s, orange muscat, bitters and allspice ($14). Guests can also have the Absinthe Experience ($35 per person) — a personal fountain for the table that dispenses the spirit over a sugar cube and into the glass. Executive chef Ken Nakano’s menu features snacks such as Smoked Duck Poutine ($16) and Belgian Truffled Pâté ($15).
