Hotspots in Gastown for Food and Drink – our “to-do” list

Well, it’s day 21 of our 21 days of Downtown and the main conclusion we’ve come to is that we need about 20 more years to try all the places we’d like to in downtown Vancouver. That’s not going to stop us though, we’re going to do our best to try all of them and tell you all about it.

Gastown is an area we’ve not fully explored, and to give us a checklist of where we need to start, our photographer friend Israel Camarillo from ICD Photography took some amazing photos of places he thinks we (and all of you!) should be checking out.

He particularly suggested we check out Jules, where he had recently attended a great afternoon of gourmet cocktail creation with H – a well-known local bartender who is most passionate about serving quality concoctions. You can read an interesting Q&A and learn more about H here. Some photos from the cocktail event:
