Juice Spiked: Pop-up cold-pressed cocktail bar Black Bamboo is now open

The city’s newest pop-up experience, Black Bamboo, is ready to elevate the everyday cold-pressed juice with its cocktail bar at 1219 Granville Street (back alley entrance). Guests can expect to celebrate summer vibes in a tropical-inspired and intimate room, while enjoying music, live entertainment, champagne, and of course, juiced cocktails.

We really wanted to create a fun and distinct pop-up experience during the summer, and cold-pressed juice and cocktails is such a natural combination. I’m really excited for Vancouver to see what Black Bamboo is all about. The atmosphere is going to be different from nigh-to-night but consistent in its upbeat and fun environment. From downtempo and jazz to funk, disco and even hip-hop, Black Bamboo will aim to evoke a nostalgic feel from the 90s.

Black Bamboo has also partnered with AperolHendricks Gin, and locally-created BitteredSling Bitters to provide high-quality, small-batch bitters and extracts to the cocktails.

Current cocktail creations include a Pineapple Margarita with fresh pineapple juice, Cazadores Resposado Tequila, Bitter Sling Lem Marrakech Bitters; Grapefruit Cosmo with Campari Aperol, fresh strawberry juice, and bitters; and a Mandarin Gin Drop with Hendricks Gin, fresh mandarin orange juice, and bitters. There will also be speciality punches and champagne service which includes champagne and a tasting of juices.
The Black Bamboo pop-up cocktail bar experience is open now until September 30, 2017, every Friday and Saturday, from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m. Reservations are accepted up to two weeks in advance.
