The Diamond

6 Powell St.
Maple Tree Square
Vancouver, British Columbia, V6A 1E7, Canada

This Prohibition-era inspired restaurant and bar overlooks the Maple Tree Square section of historic Gastown. Owned by a handful of bartending veterans, the intimate, neighborhood venue serves Asian-influenced small plates like bánh mì and gyoza. The cocktail list includes several creatively named options, such as Penicillins, made with blended scotch, peated scotch, ginger, lemon, and honey; and Moscow Mules, made with vodka, ginger beer, bitters, and lime. Whitewashed, exposed brick walls, and a sparkling chandelier respect the 100-year-old building’s structure. The Diamond also offers a handful of seminars for aspiring mixologists, including How to Stock Your Home Bar & Throw a Cocktail Party and Classic Cocktails 101.

Insider Tip:

Arrive early to grab a window seat so you can soak in bustling Maple Leaf Square while sipping Lynchburg Lemonade, a Tennessee bourbon-based cocktail listed on "Notorious" section of the menu.
