The leaves are beginning to turn, the rain is here and that can only mean one thing: exciting new fall cocktails! Yes, Starbucks is going to see an increase in their pumpkin spiced latte orders, but this is also an exciting time for the cocktail aficionado, with warm spices and autumn ingredients that will warm you from the inside out, we’ve rounded up some of the best places to sip on fall cocktails:
It’s Vancouver’s living room for a reason – a familiar spot where the who’s who gather and people come to see and be seen. Cozied up by the fireplace and listening to the ever-changing musical roster, make sure to try the Harvest Moon or Apple Bottom Jeans this fall – they’re sure to get you into the fall spirit.
This gem in the heart of Gastown is another great spot to sip on fall cocktails – up a flight of stairs, the speakeasy-style bar is the perfect place to enjoy a hearty classic cocktail over candlelight.
Located in South Granville, Grapes and Soda is one of the homiest bars to cozy up in this fall with only 22 seats in the house. The bar takes lead from its sister restaurant, Farmer’s Apprentice with a farm-to-table philosophy for the cocktail menu.
A Vancouver favourite since its opening in 2009, the moody lighting and happening scene makes Keefer the perfect spot to drink a fall cocktail. Their menu has no shortage of options with new takes on classics and imaginative creations.
The floor to ceiling arching wine rack is reason enough for this spot to make the list, but add in the large selection of original and classic cocktails and you’ve got a recipe for the perfect place to sip on cocktails all fall long.
