HANDCRAFTED COCKTAILS || D/6 BAR AND LOUNGE

The Douglas Hotel at the Parq Vancouver Entertainment Resort in Vancouver is inspired by modernist architect Arthur Erickson, and artfully incorporates this inspiration with the natural landscapes of Vancouver. From its timber-infused exterior to its mind-boggling lightbulb elevator walls, the Douglas Hotel stands out as neither art or design hotel, it's simply embracing the best of Vancouver's people and beautiful natural surroundings. 

One of our favourite spaces in The Douglas Hotel is its elegant bar and lounge area on the 6th floor. Welcome to D/6, Vancouver's new hangout one must visit if they are stopping by one of the most livable cities in the world.

Stepping out from the elevator, your attention is captivated as soon as you make a right to see the front desk, where staff greet you warmly over the reception desk made of wood and glass. To your immediate right the sophisticated and mysterious dark colour palette decor of D/6 bar and lounge draws your eyes to the bar and the stunning bookcase at the very back of the room.

Part of their delicious and innovative cocktail menu is The Douglas Fir, a drink the D/6 team has perfected for the holidays. Served in a high ball glass, with an oversized ice cube, the drink uses Douglas Fir gin, sweet & dry vermouth, cointreau and orange juniper bitters.

Two other signature drinks to try would be their Red Letter Day and First To The Post cocktails. Red Letter Day offers you a taste of red berry vodka, infused with mint and served with blackberries and raspberries - a refreshing drink for those who prefer a lighter option.
