The city’s newest pop-up experience, Black Bamboo, is ready to elevate the everyday cold-pressed juice with its cocktail bar at 1219 Granville Street (back alley entrance). Guests can expect to celebrate summer vibes in a tropical-inspired and intimate room, while enjoying music, live entertainment, champagne, and of course, juiced cocktails.
“We really wanted to create a fun and distinct pop-up experience during the summer, and cold-pressed juice and cocktails is such a natural combination,” says Carissa Campeotto, owner of Commodity Juicery who joined forces with Vancouver restaurateur Peter Girges to bring Black Bamboo to life. “I’m really excited for Vancouver to see what Black Bamboo is all about. The atmosphere is going to be different from nigh-to-night but consistent in its upbeat and fun environment. From downtempo and jazz to funk, disco and even hip-hop, Black Bamboo will aim to evoke a nostalgic feel from the 90s.”
Black Bamboo has also partnered with Aperol, Hendricks Gin, and locally-created Bittered Sling Bitters to provide high-quality, small-batch bitters and extracts to the cocktails.
Current cocktail creations include a Pineapple Margarita with fresh pineapple juice, Cazadores Resposado Tequila, Bitter Sling Lem Marrakech Bitters; Grapefruit Cosmo with Campari Aperol, fresh strawberry juice, and bitters; and a Mandarin Gin Drop with Hendricks Gin, fresh mandarin orange juice, and bitters. There will also be speciality punches and champagne service which includes champagne and a tasting of juices.
The Black Bamboo pop-up cocktail bar experience is open now until September 30, 2017, every Friday and Saturday, from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m. Reservations are accepted up to two weeks in advance.

Vancouver Urban Winery (VUW) and Wine Director David Stansfield are pleased to announce the launch of their new premium, in-house Reliance Series, the first wines of their kind made entirely in Vancouver.
Crushed and aged at Vancouver Urban Winery’s Railtown facility, the Reliance Red and Reliance White are each sourced from single vineyards in the Okanagan. The series’ name pays homage to Railtown’s industrial legacy: Reliance Metal Works was the original tenant of the 1920s-era warehouse—now known as The Settlement Building—where Vancouver Urban Winery is located.
Reliance Red and Reliance White are being released alongside new 2016 vintages of VUW’s proprietary core trinity: Pinot Gris, Rosé and Merlot, all made at Okanagan Crush Pad’s Summerland facility.
VUW Reliance Red ($28.90) | Production: 225 cases
Sustainably-farmed grapes grown in the clay sub-soils of Serendipity Winery’s 10-acre vineyard on the north end of the Naramata Bench allow this Merlot to strike a balance between structure and freshness with a complex nose of ripe plum, black cherry, sweet spice, and sage.
VUW Reliance White 2016 ($24.90) | Production: 350 cases
Grown on Stoneboat Estate Vineyard’s heritage vines located on the lower Black Sage Bench of Oliver, this Northern Italian-style, alpine blend of Pinot Blanc (80%) and Müller-Thurgau (20%) grapes boasts a rich but refreshing palate with notes of fresh pear, apricot, lemon curd, and tarragon.
VUW Merlot ($19) | Production: 445 cases
A celebration of BC’s most popular variety and no-fuss every day drinking. This wine is all about fruit. It saw minimal time in oak to preserve freshness and crushability. A consummate cool climate red.
VUW Pinot Gris ($17) | Production: 355 cases
Pinot Gris is a natural fit for super natural British Columbia. The VUW Pinot Gris is no exception. All steel. No oak. Just pure, refreshing, BC fruit.
VUW Rosé ($17) | Production: 395 cases
Pink wine is life. A BC Rosé made in the elegant Provencal style. Perfectly crisp and dry but with unabashed Okanagan fruit character.

You know it’s spring in Vancouver when cherry blossom canopies unfurl over sun-washed streets and spot prawns pop up on menus citywide. In celebration of these seasonal delights, bohemian Main Street eatery Burdock & Co is staging a collaborative dinner – combining the renowned skills of Owner/Executive Chef Andrea Carlson and Masayoshi Baba, executive chef of acclaimed eponymous Japanese eatery Masayoshi. Held on Tuesday, May 30 and inspired by the colours and playfulness of spring, the collaboration reads like a rhythmic Haiku, paying homage to the simple beauty of cherry blossoms (sakura) and the abundance of spring spot prawns.
The single-night affair features multiple plated courses, each a product of chefs Carlson and Masayoshi’s distinct culinary influences complemented by seasonal ingredients sourced from local foragers and farmers. Sakura and spot prawns will play a role in each dish, and will also make an appearance in thoughtful touches, such as the delicately sweet sakura cocktail. Wild and sustainable B.C. spot prawns are a highly sought-after delicacy, coveted by chefs and consumers around the world for their exquisitely juicy flavour and firm texture. They are available live in B.C. during harvest season, which typically starts in May and lasts between six to eight weeks.
Burdock & Co’s rustic space, adorned by festive fairy lights and designed with locally sourced materials, is the perfect nature-inspired venue for this intimate event. Guests seeking a romantic night out can opt for a seating at one of several cozy tables, while larger groups are invited to settle in at the communal table running the length of the room. The restaurant offers a comprehensive selection of naturalist wines to pair with menu items, as well as local craft beers and bespoke cocktails.
Chef Masayoshi brings to the table a longstanding passion for Japanese cuisine, having spent nearly 20 years perfecting his skills in the kitchens of Japanese restaurants around the world. He has also studied multiple styles of international cooking, and regularly applies different cultural techniques to his cooking with the aim of coaxing maximum umami (savoury taste) out of each ingredient. After working in high-end restaurants for nearly a decade, Masayoshi opened his own restaurant in Vancouver’s trendy Fraserhood district. Since launching in summer 2015, the restaurant’s rising popularity and critical praise have contributed to Masayoshi’s current reputation as one of Vancouver’s top sushi chefs.
Tickets for the sakura and spot prawn dinner cost $99 per person, plus tax and gratuity (sakura cocktail and wine pairings available at an additional charge). Guests may select from one of two seatings: the first at 6pm and the second at 8pm; each seating will last 2.5 hours. Limited tickets can be purchased online at Eventbrite, or by calling 604.879.0077.
