VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwire) -- 09/25/12 -- Vancouver's newest lounge at Hyatt Regency Vancouver is a unique gastro bar and urban retreat for foodies and fun lovers. Grain Tasting Bar offers a warm, open atmosphere inspired by a window wall of glass panes that gives an all-season view of the downtown streetscape and can be removed so the inside and outside are a seamless experience.
Specializing in artisan cocktails, regional wines, craft beer, and fresh, local cuisine, Grain Tasting Bar is a pure culinary experience that infuses the flavours of British Columbia. Sourcing produce, organic breads and cured meats from local and sustainable growers, bakers, and companies, the cool new tasting lounge offers an eclectic menu of seasonally inspired cuisine, including gourmet pizzas with fresh herbs, house-cured duck prosciutto, charcuterie and cheese, and shared plates. In the afternoon, the Grain lunch menu focuses on artisanal sandwiches and seasonal salads.
Guests can whet their whistle at Grain Tasting Bar on hand-crafted cocktails and spirits featuring local distilleries, fresh herbs and seasonal accents. The bar menu tempts with VQA wines and local craft beer on draft and in bottles.
In the modern and rustic setting, nature and design come together in perfect compliment. Reclaimed wood doors and wall accents mellow the sleek, clean architecture of the room. Enjoy a cocktail at the under-lit yellow bar, kick back on the couches and lounge chairs, or sit around the table with friends. Merging the outside with the inside, the all-season terrace is the perfect spot to enjoy the beauty of Vancouver.
"Grain Tasting Lounge brings locals and travelers together in a cool aesthetic space, where modern, rustic design, fresh cuisine and local spirits reflect the culture and character of Vancouver," says Michael Halloran, Director of Food & Beverage, Hyatt Regency Vancouver. "At Grain, you'll discover a fresh, uncomplicated culinary experience mixed with a hip, urban vibe that feeds your senses."
Grain Tasting Bar exemplifies the feel of the space and the basic essence of the food and drink. The meaning of Grain touches upon the rich textures of reclaimed wood that accent the contemporary design of the lounge, the process of spirit distillation, and our rooted focus on fresh, natural ingredients simply prepared by the kitchen.
