The Oakwood


Welcome to the West Coast baby! This Canadian bistro is warm and unpretentious, it’s sleek in its high gloss finish and welcoming with its cheeky touches of national heritage; think plaid and mounted antlers.

The staff are a down to earth bunch, which fits with the local, sharing mentality of the place. Reserve a fireside booth, or one of the nine seats at the bar. This is a popular place in the yuppie, yogi hood of Kitsilano, so those seats are in high demand. If you nab one, stick around and let the barkeeps talk you through your cocktail. They’re doing the local, seasonal thang when it comes to ingredients (just like the tasty food), so these babies are fresh as.

We loved the drama of the Smoking Barrel (smoked Bacardi Black Rum, fresh lime, ginger beer and walnut bitters) and the unique flavours of The Davidson (Bulleit Bourbon, elderflower liqueur and plum bitters). Its signature drinks like these make it stand out.
