Vancouver Just Got A Swanky New Dim Sum & Cocktail Bar

Ampersand Bistro

There’s a new hot spot in town, in Gastown more specifically. Ampersand Bar + Bistro is a swanky eatery specializing in pan-Asian tapas, dim sum and cocktails.

It just opened a couple weeks ago, taking over the space of the shuttered Mosquito dessert bar.


Besides creative cocktails, they are whipping up delicious dim sum, including pork shumai, beef shumai, har gow and a variety of dumplings.

Other bar bites include crispy salmon skin chips and some healthy options like their salmon soba bowl with egg ribbons, roasted egg plant, edamame, spiced cashews and Japanese pickles.

If you’re looking for a new Happy Hour spot, you’re in luck. They have deals daily from 3pm to 6pm and 10pm until closing.

Ampersand Bar + Bistro
