The GOODS from Hawksworth
Vancouver, BC | Hawksworth Restaurant is delighted to confirm the appointment of Brad Stanton as Bar and Lounge Manager. Armed with expertise and passion for his craft, the co-founder and vice-president of the Canadian Professional Bartenders Association (CPBA) previously showcased his talents as Bar Manager at Blue Water Café and Beverage Manager at Opus Hotel Vancouver and oversaw the opening of KOKO Restaurant + Bar at Opus Hotel Montréal. As Bar Manager at Uva, the Ottawa native was integral to securing the venue’s coveted ‘gold award’ for best Bar/Lounge at the 2010 Vancouver magazine restaurant awards.
At Hawksworth Restaurant, Brad Stanton has found a fitting platform for an enticing cocktail menu that mixes pre-prohibition classics with innovative original creations, a reflection of the room’s history and its modern reincarnation which includes a luxe leather paneled bar centered in an intimate space that will accommodate around thirty guests. With a focus on the ‘craft experience,’ house made bitters, syrups and aromas feature alongside oak-aged cocktails and a carefully chosen craft bottled beer selection. Read more

There hasn’t been much in the way of news floating about on the highly anticipated “Hawksworth” restaurant front for a few months now so I thought it might be time for an update. Let me bring you up to speed…
David Hawksworth is one of Canada’s top chefs. If you’re one of our non-food fanatic readers and have never heard the name before, don’t fret. He may have twice upon at time cooked at the James Beard Foundation in New York and been named “Chef of the Year” (2005), but he’s been off the radar for about three years now, ever since he left his long-time position as the executive chef at the superlative West.
That South Granville spot blossomed during David’s seven year tenure in the kitchen, becoming known as one of the finest restaurants in the country. Speaking personally, he has prepared some of the most amazing meals of my life (including one of my stag suppers 9 years ago). It was an honour to be on stage with him when he became the youngest chef ever to be inducted into the BC Restaurant Hall of Fame (see video below). Read more

Art & Design
Created by Alessandro Munge, from the multi award winning Canadian interior design firm Munge & Leung, Hawksworth’s four distinct dining rooms include the leather-paneled Bar & Lounge, clubby and intimate; the glamorous Pearl Room, elegant and iridescent with pearl banquettes and a magnificent chandelier; the compelling and vibrant Art Room featuring a custom installation by internationally acclaimed local artist Rodney Graham, and the first floor York Room inspired by its 1920’s heritage where original features meet modern technology and huge arc windows overlook the Vancouver Art Gallery. This veritable chameleon of a restaurant delivers a range dining experiences suited to a variety of moods or occasions.
“Each design element, in addition to being functional, adds beauty, depth and appeals the senses, we really want people to experience the space on more then just a visual level, to appreciate its touch and feel and to really connect with it” – Alessndro Munge
