6 Powell Street, Vancouver
Advice: Order a couple of different items if you are hungry as they are fairly small.
Love the room with their exposed brick walls, this is a shining star for cocktails and nibbles in Gastown, the bartenders are masters in mixing up interesting cocktails and they have quite the extensive list from boozy to refreshing to not so boozy. The drinks are well priced in the $7-$10 range which makes them affordable. My friend and I chose different cocktails and both were unique, The Diamond Cup (on the Not So Boozy list) and the Buck Buck Mule (on the Refreshing list). There is a small menu of small plates with an Asian influenced theme. I had the Soba Noodles in the duck broth with peking duck and market vegetables in a bowl of miso broth. My friend had the Salmon special and the Prawn salad. The Diamond is an ideal spot for a late afternoon or night time snack with cocktails not exactly a great spot for dinner with friends unless you order a few different items. We skipped dessert as the only had one dessert on offering. The servers were friendly and we liked that they dropped by to check in fairly often.
