To tuxedoed people, velvet ropes are ordinary white picket fences and champagne fountains are lawn sprinklers. Kick down the fence and drink from the sprinkler with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of upscale bar snacks and drinks at OPUS Bar, located on Davie Street. Among a bounty of other accolades, OPUS Bar was included in the category Best Bar Snacks in 2009 by Vancouver Magazine.
OPUS Bar, located within the lavish OPUS Hotel Vancouver, loads its lounge with an eclectic ensemble of light bar fare and a fierce variety of palatable potables. Properly prep stomachs for the delightful drinkables with an "O" Bite such as the pecorino fries, an upscale interpretation of crispy fries accented by luxurious black-truffle oil, chives, and grated pecorino cheese ($9). Dredge crispy squid through decadent kewpie mayo and exotic sweet-chili-sauce terrain before disassembling the makeshift dozers with one swift bite ($9), or nosh on a plate of tandoori wings, spiced with a zesty butter-chicken sauce ($9). Lifestyle cocktails invite guests to analyze their alter egos, pairing fictional personalities with fun drinks, while OPUS's hand-crafted specialties sprinkle drinkable sundaes with cherries, lasers, and precious metals. The Summer Sun places Maker's Mark, calvados, vermouth, and bronze powder into a libation that is both potent and pretty ($16.50), and the Pacific Spa compiles Hendrick's gin, vermouth, rose water, smoked sea salt, silver flakes, and cucumber ($16.50). A quality selection of wines, whiskey, and single malts is also available.
Splashes of saturated pink and lavender plus sleek, eye-catching furniture make OPUS Bar a retreat for the glitterati or those easily distracted by shiny objects. Don a dashing outfit or put on a casually cool David Hasselhoff face mask before being seen at this chic, popular evening destination.
