Hotel Bar with best ambiance in Vancouver

I am on the lookout for a good hotel bar to hole up for a Martini...i am not looking for anything trendy, yaletown, etc

i am looking for sophisticated elegance, but not so exclusive that they throw me out.

what do you people think

        i'd second bacchus and add the Yew in the 4 seasons

      2. I like the piano bar at the Hotel Vancouver.
        The Pan Pacific bar had a fabulous view although I haven't been there since the new convention centre was finished so I'm not sure if there is any impact.

        1. Was just in Vancouver last week and stayed at Four Seasons. I will second thesuggestion for Yew. Very nice lounge.

              Bacchus gets my vote too. Very nice!

            2. I should have added....which bar is open latest?? I think Bacchus closes relatively early or no? I would assume the hotel bars would stay open until later...
