Dominion Bar + Kitchen at Surrey Civic Plaza: Win a Gift Card

Comments 86 by Rebecca Bollwitt

Dominion Bar + Kitchen (“Dominion”) is revolutionizing Surrey’s restaurant culture with a new social space located in the lobby of Civic Hotel, Autograph Collection, the first world-class hotel built in the area in over two decades.

Dominion Bar + Kitchen at Surrey Civic Plaza

With views that overlook Surrey Civic Plaza, a vibrant public square with immediate transit access and pedestrian walkways, Dominion Bar + Kitchen is expected to be the culinary destination for residents of and visitors to Surrey.

Dominion will draw inspiration from the idea of cultural unity to create a menu of ‘New Canadian’ cuisine that embraces inclusivity, share plates, and dishes influenced from diverse cultures across the region.

Signature dishes include the Bao Mac mini cheese burger in a Chinese-style open-side bun and the Jäger Chicken marinated in Jägermeister and served with German spaetzle noodle dumplings.

The menu doesn’t end with cuisine, it incorporates British Columbia’s two leading beverage craves: craft beer and VQA wine. Dominion’s craft beer selection focuses on local breweries across Metro Vancouver, such as Four Winds, Steel and Oak, and Parallel 49. The menu has local BC wine favourites, Burrowing Owl, Joie Farm, and Nichol Vineyard, from the Okanagan Valley. Dominion will also feature wine on tap, with a system that maintains wine freshness, minimizes oxidation, and prevents overheating.

Guests will be greeted by a ten foot, vibrant yellow portal door with custom Dominion ‘D’ shaped handles made by Vancouver-based fabricator, Birdman the Welder. Above the door, Dominion’s sign will be illuminated with blue LED backlighting.

The interior will be an eclectic mix of intricate industrial lighting, bold furniture, and striking colours. Custom Italian, red leather upholstered banquettes, are perfectly contrasted with a stunning custom-designed chandelier, Circle Grigio Don Gaeta Italian floor tile, and local art.

The feature display along the washroom corridor has three industrial photography images of the Surrey Steel Fabrication shop, captured by Brian Howell, an award winning photographer based in North Delta. Howell is known for contemporary photography that bring everyday images to life.

As someone who grew up in Surrey, and has seen the city evolve so much over the years, I’m excited to have a new social hub in my hometown, close to family. I look forward to hopping on the SkyTrain from Downtown Vancouver to check out the some craft cocktails, local beer, and New Canadian nibbles at Dominion.
