Cinq à Sept Happy Hours

Drop in to these elevated happy hours across the city during Vancouver Cocktail Week

Once the workday is done, head straight to one of these elevated happy hours based on the French concept of the “cinq à sept”—5 to 7 pm, the playful hours between work and family life. (Event times vary, though, so check the venues’ websites!) Expect VCW signature cocktails, snacks, entertainment, socializing and more. Note that these events are not ticketed; however, some establishments may recommend reservations, so call ahead to secure a seat.

Vancouver Cocktail Week Cinq à Sept happy hours run nightly, March 3-10.
