Vancouver’s West End Could Use Poznan’s Underground Whisky Bar

(via) We’re well aware that a whisky bar in the basement of a West End residential building probably wouldn’t pass the NIMBY smell test, but that’s part of what makes the prospect so golden. Designed by Adam Wiercinski Architekt in the Polish city of Poznan, Zrodlo Bar is located in the basement of a tenement house on a busy street in the centre of town. Small, intimate, modern yet ancient, the uncluttered space looks urban without being too pretentious, and its streetside patio is equally on point. Bonus: dig the rebar and green leather roll seats!

The good looking "Piedra Sal" occupies a second-storey corner location in Paseo de la Reforma. We'd much rather have it here in Vancouver.

This Wes Anderson-Inspired ‘Budapest Cafe’ for Kerrisdale, Please

It has that mix of old money eccentricity and oblivious ridiculousness characterized in The Royal Tenenbaums and The Fantastic Mr. Fox

This Tiny Basement Bar in Mayfair for an Underground Address in Hastings-Sunrise

North Audley Cantine is a gorgeous, windowless basement bar that appears to be sprung from the colourful mind of local artist Andy Dixon.
