The GOODS from CinCin
Vancouver, BC | From June 2nd to 8th, CinCin Ristorante and Bar revisits its Italian roots with “Negroni Week” – an international celebration of one of the world’s great cocktails – and is one of only five venues participating in British Columbia. Restaurants and bars around the globe, from Romania to South Africa, will donate proceeds from their Negroni sales to a local charity during this time.
“Negroni Week is an opportunity for restaurants and bars around the world to unite with a common love of this classic cocktail, but also to give back to the community,” says Adaina Smyth, CinCin bar manager. “Since 2006, the BC Hospitality Foundation has provided a financial safety net that helps to support ill and injured food, beverage, and hospitality industry members in British Columbia, when they need it most. We are honoured to be able to support the BCHF by donating the proceeds of our Negroni Week sales to this important cause.”
In keeping with the spirit of community, the CinCin Bar team – led by Smyth – have collaborated to create a specialty menu of six new Negroni cocktails in addition to its signature CinCin Negroni. Smyth recommends guests try the Negroni Amante, which features locally-produced Long Table Gin, Campari, Pedro Ximenez Sherry and Prosecco for a light summer cocktail, or for a traditional Italian taste, the Tocco Italiano with Beniamino Moscato Grappa, Campari, and Martini Bianco. The full Negroni menu can be found online here.

About CinCin Ristorante
Italian inspired wood fired cucina
A winding stone staircase leads upward from bustling Robson Street to this celebrated Vancouver dining room, recognized for its contemporary, Italian inspired menu and award-winning wine cellar. The elegant marble bar is a central feature, accented by stone walls hung with original artworks, and punctuated with tall arched windows that open onto a secluded terrace. Housed in the private dining room, part of CinCin’s value-driven wine collection is on display: deep and global with rare vintages, boutique finds, and an extensive half-bottle selection.
An ingredient-driven, seasonal focus sets the tone for CinCin’s menu, with distinctive dishes embracing the traditions of Italy.
Acting Restaurant Director Richard Luxton and his service team choreograph unrivalled dining experiences, committed to their exemplary wine program and his own industry-leading service standards.
