The GOODS from Refuel
Vancouver, BC | Refuel Bar Manager Robert Scope introduces half pour wine pairings and an alcohol-free drink list. “We are starting to see a trend emerging; guests are requesting non-alcoholic mixed drinks and beer, as well as seeking out low alcohol wines,” says Scope. “I want our guests to have an incredible dining experience and not feel they have to abstain from enjoying a thoughtfully prepared beverage.” The new low and non-alcoholic options will appeal to designated drivers, guests with dietary restrictions and those who simply want to sample a variety of wines.
In addition to Robert’s new non-alcoholic drink list, guests can choose between a V.P.D. (Very Petit Drink) wine pairing and a Refuel wine pairing when ordering the daily $38, prix fixe menu. The V.P.D. pairing consists of a 2oz pour with the first two courses and a 1oz pour with dessert, for a total of five ounces, which is equivalent to one glass of wine. The Refuel wine pairing is double in size. From January 24 until February 6, these options will be available to pair with Refuel’s Dine Out Vancouver menu. Details after the jump…

Refuel neighbourhood restaurant and bar was inspired by freshness. Veering away from an exclusive ‘fine dining’ experience into one that is more accessible, the new space welcomes with a playful, warm design by Marc Bricault that evokes a neighbourhood atmosphere where guests can sit back, socialize and be themselves. Guests may watch the kitchen brigade while sipping a handcrafted cocktail at the 12-seat bar, or gather around a table with friends while listening to music compiled by the experts at Kitsilano’s Zulu Records.
Refuel’s food philosophy focuses on affordable, honest, down-to-earth Northwest fare that celebrates seasonal, local ingredients. Open for lunch and dinner daily, with special brunch features on the weekends, the Refuel menu has an incredible selection of snacks, sides, starters, mains and plates to share that utilize quality ingredients and offer excellent value. At the bar, the focus is on thoughtfully prepared, classic cocktails, along with craft beer and approachable wines.
