New Concept For Cambie

The old Jolly Alderman Pub in the Plaza 500 Hotel is going under the knife today to make room for a new concept that will be umbilically attached to FigMint (photos below), the hotel’s dining room and lounge.

Mike Mitchell, Director of Operations is pleased to announce that the first phase in the redesign, renovation and rebranding of the former site of the Jolly Alderman Pub will begin Friday, December 19th. This first phase will require a short three week closure of the dining room of FigMint Restaurant from December 19th until January 12th. As cuisine is going to be an important part of the new concept, and since FigMint Executive Chef Lee Humphries will also be at that helm, the expansion of FigMint’s current kitchen, in preparation of the new concept, will take place during the closure.

The closure will not affect Firefly Fine Wines and Ales which will remain open its usual hours of Monday to Sunday from 10:00am until 11:00pm.

Says Mr. Mitchell, “It’s never a good time to close a business for renovations but if you are going to it may as well be over the holidays and with the holiday weeks a slow time in late December and early January this is the ideal time for some construction. We are very excited about this new project and look forward to sharing more details with you in the New Year.”

Further details on the concept for the former site of the Jolly Alderman will be announced early next year along with news on renovations to the Cambie Street frontage along FigMint Restaurant and Lounge and Firefly Fine Wines and Ales as the Cambie Line construction comes to its final conclusion.

    I remember working with Lee some 12 years ago at The Westbury back in London.
    Lee was at a time an apprentice and a very good friend.
    Because of his attention to everything and his determination,I always knew that he would succeed.
    And i am well please he does as he worked hard and deserve it.
    We all very proud of you mate.
