Lounge Like A Lannister, Sip Like A Snow
In honour of the season five premiere of the HBO’s hit series Game of Thrones, Gastown’s Bambudda is hosting “Winter Is Coming”, a themed pop-up cocktail bar, on Tuesday March 10 at 7 p.m.
At the helm of this one-of-a-kind evening is Matt Grippo, head bartender at San Francisco’s Blackbird Bar. The Whisky Warrior is heading North for his first-ever Canadian stop, thanks to an alliance with Bambudda’s bar manager, Tarquin Melnyk.
Grippo’s inventive, Games of Thrones inspired concoctions include: the soothing and sultry Milk of the Poppy, the alcohol-forward Mad King, the flaming Mother of Dragons and the dangerously delicious Red Wedding. Cocktails are $11 each or three for $30.
To complement Grippo’s gripping cocktails, Chef Curtis will be serving an “All Men Must Dine”, a la carte snack menu.
Get into the spirit of the evening: Prizes, including The Duke Bourbon and restaurant gift certificates will be awarded to fans who don their best Game of Thrones costumes.
