AnnaLena's Summer Affair

Happy Hour @ AnnaLena

Beat the dog days of summer at AnnaLena with the newly introduced happy hour daily from 5pm to 6pm — a curated selection of hand made cocktails, beers and wines. Happy hour is an appetizing way to try AnnaLena's world class cocktail program, led by Bar Manager Kevin Brownleee, recently ranked amongst the top cocktail bars in Vancouver by Scout Magazine.  

Back on the AnnaLena classic and happy hour menus is one of Kevin's favourites, the "Los Bravos". A combination of tequila, strawberry-black pepper liqueur, cacao, jalapeño and lime creates the perfect accent to a summer day.

AnnaLena Welcomes Scott Mitchell as Assistant Manager & Sommelier

Scott Mitchell is the newest member of the management team. Scott's career in Hospitality began 10 years ago in Western Australia's Margaret River wine country; since then he's pulled many pints in various Edinburgh pubs throughout his time at University and poured from one of the World's largest whisky collections at Scotland's famous Gleneagles Hotel. 

Before moving to Vancouver in Summer 2016, he left his post as General Manager of Edinburgh's The Bon Vivant - during which time they won a coveted 'Tales of the Cocktail' award, for 'Best International Restaurant Bar'. 

With a tremendous passion for everything surrounding the world of food and beverage service, alongside studying for his WSET Diploma in Wine & Spirits, Scott is relishing his time spent in the AnnaLena room; whether that be running a busy section, slinging cocktails behind the bar or helping the front of house team. Scott will also be working alongside GM Jeff Parr in developing the AnnaLena wine program. 

Named to honour Chef Michael Robbins' two grandmothers, AnnaLena is about imagination, creativity and possibility - combining modern Canadian cooking, creativity and innovation, with seamless service in one of Vancouver's favourite neighbourhoods. Since opening its doors in the coveted Kitsilano area in March 2015, AnnaLena has quickly become both a neighbourhood and critics favourite. 

AnnaLena was included in enRoute Magazine as the sixth best new restaurants in the country and earned the Air Canada enRoute People's Choice award in its first year. AnnaLena was also named to Canada's 100 Best Restaurants two years running, and was included in the top three of Best New Restaurants in the 2016 Vancouver Magazine Restaurant Awards following a glowing review in 2015. Robbins also won Best Chef and Best New Restaurant in the 2016 Golden Plate Awards in the Georgia Straight. With a clear focus on its vision and a committed and talented team, the best is yet to come for AnnaLena.
