News from Scout supporters The Refinery

Vancouver, BC | Sit up by the windows on the second floor, while the Olympic traffic floats by on the street below. With a menu heavy on artisan sandwiches, salads and flatbreads, the beverage accompaniments are nothing to shake a stick at. Lauren Mote and her bar team have been busy creating a cocktail list fit for an athlete – literally. With signature cocktails holding a significant place on the menu, the addition of “Tea Time” and “Jump-Start” cocktails, both healthy and delicious, help promote healthy vitality throughout the day, without depriving yourself of those sharp premium spirits we love so much. In case you were wondering, we?re now open 7 days a week, serving both lunch and dinner, with no closures in between. Plus, we?re not raising our prices. How?s that for awesome?

Open for Lunch, starting today, Tuesday, February 09 2010, from 11:30am to 3:00pm

Full listing of our menu, cocktails, brand new wine list *plus* all reservations can be made at www.therefineryvancouver.com.

Need something to do on Valentine?s Day? We?ve got just the thing. With our grand tasting menu in full force, $49/person gets you 6 shared courses, and a glass of bubbly. When you?re done, it?s party time – if you need a great Granville St after-dinner party, let us know and we?ll sort you out with our many Granville St neighbours. Happy heart day. Lastly, we?re open late. Who doesn?t want to jam to Chromeo and sip on an apple/walnut sazerac? Check us out: open until 1am Sunday – Thursday and 2am Friday and Saturday.

    Remember when “the Refinery” use to be the Sugar Refinery? It was that cool late night joint that played really good music, and served booze in tea cups that was eventually shut down by the city. And now it sells “artisan sandwiches”. Good times.

    WTF is and artisan sandwich anyway?
