Grain Tasting Bar Vancouver

Comments 146 by Rebecca Bollwitt

Grain Tasting Bar is the latest main lobby attraction at the Hyatt Regency Vancouver that combines rustic and contemporary elements with chic ambiance. Local craft beer specials on game nights, wood-fired pizzas, and featured BC growers, distillers, and brewers make this new hot spot shine.
