Preview of VGC’s Gastown Cocktail Craw: Silk Lounge

Silk Lounge is a new restaurant in Gastown that offers a unique blend of Indian and French cuisines.  In the kitchen, they proudly use only locally sourced organic produce and protein, with no added sugar, preservatives, and modified ingredients.

They are also known for their incredible aesthetic interiors, spotting ancient Indian Hardwoods, hand linked chandeliers, and an array of Buddha statues. Visiting guests find themselves dining here with a calm atmosphere, blended with aromas of fresh herbs, and Indian spices, which they have also incorporated into their beautiful dishes and crafted cocktails.

As they are making such a great addition to the upcoming Gastown Cocktail Crawl by Vancouver Gourmet Club, I came here with Areta (@foodgressing) to have a taste of what they are offering to the cocktail event guests.
