George Ultra Lounge is the Godfather of Vancouver’s cocktail culture. Modeled in the London style, George pioneered the cocktail kitchen concept in Canada when it opened in 2005. Today, with award-winning Shaun Layton behind the bar, George continues to pour proper classic and market-fresh cocktails, complimented by a dinner and late night menu through 2 a.m.  George is located at 1137 Hamilton Street in Yaletown, and online at georgelounge.com. For reservations, or to secure the G-Spot private room, phone 604.628.5555.

Other notable awards include silvers in the Grey Goose BC Competition (2008); Effen Vodka’s Vancouver competition (2008); and Maker’s Mark bourbon cocktail competition with his Loretto Process (2009); and a George team bronze in the Sagatiba Cachaca’s Battle of the Bars (2008).
