SCENEY GRANT



Head Bartender

CAN YOU TELL US A STORY, A FAMOUS ANECDOTE ABOUT THIS PLACE THAT MAKES IT UNIQUE?

Art, culture, music, refinement and energy. After only being open for seven short years, we are now on everyone's must-visit list when traveling to Vancouver.

IF THIS PLACE WAS A SONG, WHAT WOULD IT BE?

To put this place into one song would be too hard. We have live music every day of the week and we see so many genres and styles making it an energetic musical hub. However, it would probably be a song by Bob Dylan. His lyrics and words are so different and inspirational, we actually have them inscribed in a few of our tables that light up at night.

HOW DID YOU BECOME SO PASSIONATE ABOUT WINE & SPIRITS?

At first it was the taste, but the passion followed once I started to learn the history and cultural influence that alcohol has had through generations and the care put into making it.

HOW AND WHEN DID YOU FIRST DISCOVER LOUIS XIII?

I was fortune to be introduced to LOUIS XIII first at a tasting that was held at The Lobby Lounge shortly after joining the team six years ago.

WHAT WOULD YOU SAY ABOUT LOUIS XIII TO SOMEONE WHO HAS NEVER TASTED IT?

You're not just tasting a Cognac, you are getting an experience – perfection in a glass. You are literally tasting history.

WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST DREAM IN LIFE?

Wow, tough question. I have so many dreams and aspirations. I think my biggest dream is just to always be happy and continuously make as many people smile in doing so.

Arriving at the Lobby Lounge, Grant has been an integral part of the team and now oversees the cocktail program for the hotel.
