I really enjoyed the obscurity of the location, tinted windows looking onto vibrant Gastown whilst enjoying delightfully well prepared meals.

Be My Vest [Guest]
This was a random pick and much to my surprise, it's the same location as the place I went to..3 restaurants ago back in the days. Place has a Gothic Underworld look. Even my friend got anxious upon seeing skulls and The Ring-like images on its homepage. Server's exceptionally upbeat and informative in describing our orders. The appiez: Canadian oysters (good), & pine smoked venison carpaccio (gobbled it but wasn't down with the sunflower seeds). My fish wasn't as great cuz I realized I'm not a wide-range fish eating person. (Not the fault of the restaurant's.) My friend's Duck Breast Blood Alley looked like a shoot-out. Definitely a novel meal. Later on, it turned into a banging meat market lounge then we knew we had to bounce.

I and my friends went to the
I and my friends went to the restaurant for my bday dinner and I had such a great experience. The executive chef, Jimmy is such a talented guy and he delivered us amazing dishes to our table. His mains were outstanding, I would choose scallop and duck dishes as favorites. Their cocktails were great as well with fresh local ingredients. I had one with gin, lemon, and blackcurrent and it was refreshing. For appetizers, please try his artichoke soup, you would not get disappointed. If you are looking for a restaurant with a funky atmosphere but serving amazing dishes then you should give it a shot. In the evening, DJ plays vibes as well.

Unique restaurant / bar
It's a hip, perhaps hipster joint that serves great cocktails and small plates. There are a couple of main dishes that are priced around $25 dollars. The spring garden salad was my favorite dish.

HouseGuest is not easy to find, but worth searching for! Very unique space with incredible cocktails from an ace bartender, a solid beer list as well as amazing food. We were there on a Wednesday, so it was quiet but we are told it is crowded on the weekends. Definitely seek it out late night!

Brunch in a cozy corner in the dimly lit room that is HouseGuest is the perfect thing on a rainy Vsncouver day.
