Gin “it” Joint
When I heard that Donnelly Group had taken over the old space of beauty mecca, Beauty Mark…well I just scratched my head. When I heard it was going to be called Killjoy. Repeat.
At the recent media launch it was gin concoctions galore, charcuturie of top local meats, and ample sampling of the wine on tap. You read that right. Killjoy is the first restaurant in Yaletown to have Vancouver Urban Winery’s wine-on-tap program: eight B.C. red and white wines on tap.
My Gin Reco: ‘Unusually Yours’ with Hendrick’s gin, ginger, St. Germain (an elderflower liqueur), pear juice, cucumber foam, and rose spritz.
Once you’re finished enjoying the cavernous main floor there is a hide-away downstairs for bottle service (ala Vancouver style), DJ and a small dance floor. Killjoy is a cozy space and a nice addition to Yaletown.1120 Hamilton Street Vancouver, BC
