Bar at Gary Danko?

We are looking forward to going to Gary Danko for the first time on Sunday. Our reservation is for 9 pm, so we have plenty of time of a before dinner drink. Should we just go a little early and have a drink at the bar or is there a better choice for a before dinner drink nearby?

  1. You should go to the GD bar. You will most likely have to wait there anyways before you are seated.

    1. You may also want to try the Buena Vista, which is on the bottom the hill near Fisherman's warf. It's kind of a tourist trap but it has it's own charm and the Irish Coffees (they claim to have invented the drink) taste great!

        1. The bar at Gary Danko is a wonderful place to start your evening. And a lot of people have dinner at the bar. Do get there early to enjoy the ambience, the wine list, and the pouring staff. Enjoy!
