The GOODS from Homer St. Cafe & Bar
Vancouver, BC | Homer St. Café and Bar Beverage Director JS Dupuis is pleased to announce the launch of a new Takeover series at the popular Yaletown eatery.
Each month will see a different distiller or brewer commandeer Homer Street Café’s bar and kitchen for a week, offering drink specials, collaborative menu items and ticketed tasting dinners with experts from the participating brewery and/or distillery.
The Takeover Series kicks off with Central City Brewing & Distilling, December 4-10. Throughout the weeklong event, Surrey-based brewer and distiller’s Queensborough Gin cocktail and a flight of all three Lohin & McKinnon whiskies will be featured at the bar and in special dishes on the Fresh Sheet. These will be complemented by SuperSolar IPA and Black Lager on tap for the week as well as casks of their Amber Ale blended with their Lohin & McKinnon 150th Anniversary peated whiskey starting on Thursday the 7th.
The Central City Takeover will close with a family-style tasting dinner on Sunday, December 10th featuring a cask-tapping by Central City Brewmaster Gary Lohin, a guided whisky tasting with Head Distiller Stuart McKinnon, and a welcome Queensborough Gin cocktail created by Brand Ambassador Christos Kalaitzis.

About Homer Street Cafe & Bar
Housed in two of Vancouver’s most iconic buildings, Homer St Cafe and Bar is a contemporary restaurant set in the historic Homer Building and new Beasley building in Vancouver’s Yaletown district. Classic comfort cooking takes center stage thanks to a fire engine red rotisserie that roasts all manner of proteins. It’s chicken that’s the star here: served in quarter, half or whole portions, accompanied by classic sides basted in jus. A decidedly adventurous wine and cocktail list rounds out the menu. The restaurant features two spaces that consist of an open concept kitchen “Chef’s Bar” where one can get up close and personal with the culinary team, a private dining room with reclaimed factory windows, and bespoke seating complemented by antique tiling.
