Dine Out Vancouver Tickets Now Available


Tickets are now on sale for the 2016 Dine Out Vancouver Festival (Jan. 15-31), described as the most diverse yet, featuring decadent feasts inspired by culinary-minded films; a whisky-focused dinner with a nod to Robbie Burns; a wine-centric debate and BC VQA wine tasting; an elegant under-the-sea theme at the Vancouver Aquarium; and a chef’s personal tribute to his mentors expressed through a bespoke menu.

The first wave of Dine Out Vancouver Festival event tickets are on sale allowing diners to browse an enticing menu of more than 90 culinary-minded experiences.

Highlights include:

  • Cocktail Masterclass. Class is in session! Vancouver bartender Lauren Mote has compiled a curriculum that explores some of the cocktail world’s most important ingredients: bitters, whiskies, agave and single malts, for starters. Sign up for one of five masterclasses and prepare to get schooled in Spirits 101.
  • Film Feast. Elegant dinners perfectly paired to food-focused films screened in swanky theatres. These leisurely pairings will take place at the Shangri-La Hotel (film: The Search for General Tso; restaurant: MARKET by Jean-Georges) and Fairmont Pacific Rim (film: Netflix sensation Chef’s Table; restaurants: ORU and The Rawbar).
  • Bauhaus Tribute. This exquisitely crafted, six-course meal pays homage to Bahaus Executive Chef Stefan Hartmann’s personal mentors: Chef Marco Pierre White (referred to as “the Godfather of modern cooking”) and Chef Juan Amador (his German-based Restaurant Amador has received three Michelin stars).
  • Brewmaster’s Breakfast. Hosted by Big Rock Urban Brewery, this beer-inspired breakfast buffet – think spelt-grain flapjacks, beer kielbasa and hopped hollandaise – is paired with local craft brew.
  • Feast with the Fish. Marvel at reef sharks, seahorses, sea turtles and other underwater tropical delights while nibbling on a four-course meal crafted by Vancouver Aquarium Executive Chef Tim Bedford. After cleansing your palate with craft brews from Red Truck Beer Company, adjourn to the Aquarium’s inner sanctum for a behind-the-scenes adventure.
  • World Chef Exchange. A series of five dinners crafted by local chefs who have joined forces with award-winning chefs from Sydney, New York, Copenhagen, Los Angeles and Puerto Vallarta.
    Ticket prices range from free to $197 (plus tax). Dine Out Vancouver Festival 2016 runs from Jan. 15 to 31.
