    Order an Old Fashioned!! They'll bring you a beer, cider or sparkling wine while you wait for them to make the most perfect of classic cocktails.

    Get the Old Fashioned. They take their time making it properly, and gives you a beer while you wait.

    Like a speakeasy of yore, The Diamond’s unassuming second-floor entrance belies the party inside: this is Vancouver’s top cocktail spot for its crowd and constitution. Read more

    Most unsanitary bartending I have ever seen. Bartender's fail to realize that I've is food. They use their hands to put it in drinks, pick cubes up and drop them back in the bin.

    Don't bother making resos for a party. Your guests will show up and be told they don't do resos!

    Great mint julep! Actually comes in a pewter cup. Their corpse reviver is also really good. The Clover Club at Pourhouse is just a tad better than the one here though.

    Head upstairs for an unbelievable atmosphere and cocktail menu...seriously, AMAZING drinks. Food isn't veggie friendly and more for nibbling.

    Drinks at the Diamond are divided into fun & approachable categories like Delicate, Proper & Notorious (w/ little illustrations showing which glass each cocktail comes in). And they don’t disappoint!

    Avoid the olive appetizer, try the edamame instead. Most cocktails will suit you well as long as you like the components. For a mouth-melting time, get the short ribs sub—delicious!

    The Gyoza is almost as remarkable as their Crab and Corn soup. I enjoy both with an Isabella.

    Gyoza goes in the duck sub, duck sub gets dipped in the crab and corn soup. Sip on a penicillin. Believe me.

    Eat the Gyoza (it has pork, so it's not for you veggies). So tasty.

    Go to the Diamond for the excellent cocktails but make sure you soak up the booze with the wicked Vietnamese-style duck sub sandwich.
