Pretzels and Nuts

Located at the Rosewood Hotel Georgia, this glamourous cocktail bar features a 3,000-square-foot lounge with daily live musical entertainment and sleek interiors that create an intimate, sophisticated ambiance reminiscent of the era’s speakeasies. Bespoke cocktail creations that incorporate house-made bitters will challenge convention while vintage cocktails will honor the history of the craft of bartending. The menu also features an impressive champagne selection and a diverse offering of wines, spirits and craft beers. Joined by my friend Jason we enjoyed a couple of cocktails, and a full dinner indulging most of their snacks and share plates. I had the Vieux Carre Cocktail ($16) Canadian rye, brandy, Italian vermouth, Benedictine, Peychaud’s bitters, gomme, absinthespritz and lemon oil; while Jason had the Prohibition Cocktail ($14) Dorothy Parker gin, Cocchi Americano, apricot du rousillon, fresh orange and lemon zest. Cocktails are served with a complimentary serving of pretzel sticks and nuts.

The Black Truffled Pate

We started off with delicious warmed Pretzels with a Farmhouse Saison ale cheese ($11); followed by the tasty Chicken Wings ($15) siracha chili, lemon juice. Next was the outstanding Pineapple Salad ($13) red watercress, jalapeno pepper, bood orange, lime and mint that had a nice spice kick. Next was the tasty in-house Smoked Farmhouse Cheddar and baguette ($13) apple mustard and baguette. The Smoked Duck Poutine ($16) fingerling potatoes, confit duck leg, golden ears cheese curds was highly addictive and delicious; and The Black Truffled Pate ($15) sauterne gelee, cornichon baguette was a great sharing dish to round out the savoury eats.

For dessert we both shared the outstanding and unique Smoked Chocolate Ice Cream Cigar ($9) with espelette pepper, olive oil

This is an elegant spot to enjoy some cocktails, eats with friends or business associates and it’s a place to be seen or not be seen.
