The Keefer Bar



Located within Vancouver’s historic Chinatown, The Keefer Bar has been an institution of the city for more than a decade. Where expansion and modernisation has eroded away at some of Chinatown’s history, the bar uses its place to spotlight its history through a unique drinks programme that is inspired by old apothecaries.

Drinks such as the Sweet & Sour Sour, made with gin, Scotch, acidified pineapple, red pepper and honey, are fun but delivered with serious panache – don’t forget the ketchup chip chicharron garnish. The classics are just as honed, with the Keefer 75 a fantastic rendition on the original. Don’t miss out on its happy hour, where all bar snacks and dim sum are half price, and a selection of cocktails are just $6-8 a pop.
