Lobby Lounge at the Fairmont Pacific Rim

Our great city has a vast number of bars and restaurants that have embraced the growing trend towards cocktail culture.

Vancouver is also home to numerous industry pioneers who have made it possible for enthusiasts to enjoy high-quality, innovative craft cocktails. They’ve inspired countless bartenders, and provided valuable history lessons along the way. Many of the cocktails we enjoy today come from recipes pulled from the dusty pages of cocktail books printed in the 1800s, and the techniques they employ are as relevant now as they were then. The bartenders' meticulous attention to detail and respect for their craft — and for their guests — are the reasons they’re the very best at what they do.

However, there are only a small handful of bars and restaurants that really get it right when it comes to craft cocktails.

The Lobby Lounge at the Fairmont Pacific Rim has been a cocktail destination since its inception. Some seriously pedigreed bar stars have come through its doors, including Absolut Ambassador Jacob Sweetapple.

The Lobby Lounge is now home to Grant Sceney. Hailing from Australia, Grant is a creative genius and arguably the hottest bartender in Canada, with a top-six finish at the Diageo World Class Canada Bartender of the Year competition, and countless other victories to his credit.

Next time you stop by, ask him to shake up his medal-worthy cocktail, ‘Embers at Dawn,’ which is comprised of maple wood-smoked bourbon, apple, ginger and cinnamon — perfect after a chilly walk around the seawall.
