I was fairly lucky to be invited in on opening night last Friday September 3rd to experience The Charles Bar, perhaps the bar was named after a guy named Charles, I’m not sure, but this bar hits it on the nose in this neighbourhood. The room is beautiful, dark wooden floors, large wooden tables, high ceilings and a cool bar set-up along with a kitchen cooking pretty good food! Owned by the Adelphia Group, this bar is located in the new Woodward’s building on the Cordova side in Gastown.
I sampled some of the food and drink, favourites were the Gastown Lemonade, Tuna Tataki and Truffle Fries.
The Charles Bar is located at 136 West Cordova and online at www.TheCharlesBar.ca
