A good meal starts with the perfect glass of wine. Would you like to learn more about how to select a great dinner wine? Or simply try some of the best wines from around the globe? If so, I invite you to join my bimonthly wine club, where members meet up to sample diverse wines, region by region, with dinner at Bauhaus Restaurant. The best part is, we only charge for the wine at cost plus 10%, which gives you a great deal on higher-end wines.
Our next wine club dinner will take place on December 12th, which will feature wines from the Toskana region of Italy. Your palate will revel in the taste of Sassascaia, Ornellaia, and Solaia. The food will also be Italian inspired and include some Truffle dishes. The cost for this wine dinner is $130 (in addition to the cost of the wine). If you are interested in joining us at this wine club dinner, please email email@example.com. Don't hesitate! Space is limited to 20 people and there are only 6 spots left.
Meet Bauhaus Restaurant sous-chef David Mueller. David started his culinary career in 2006 while attending university in his hometown of Kelowna, British Columbia. Shortly after realizing his passion for restaurants he started to hone his skills at the Eldorado Hotel, working alongside two culinary stars: Food Network Chef Michael Lyons and former Five Diamond Eden Chef Justin Best. In 2012, David traveled to Ottawa to stauge for a month at Atelier, Canada’s fourth best restaurant, under Chef Marc Lepine. After completing this stauge, David set his sights on the Vancouver culinary scene. David became Junior Sous Chef under the prestigious Chef Lee Parsons, who came from Raymond Blanc’s Le Manoir Aux Quait Saisson in England, at Bacchus Restaurant in the Four Diamond Award-winning Wedgewood Hotel.
David views cooking as an art form that is appreciated best when all five senses are balanced. He employs local, high quality ingredients and a masterful technique to achieve sublime flavours, aromas, and visual appeal that leaves you wanting more. His culinary skills, family's German heritage, and drive to learn from Michelin-starred chefs led him to Bauhaus Restaurant to work and learn alongside Chef Stefan Hartmann.
At Bauhaus Restaurant, we like to keep on the cutting edge of culinary trends. That's why we provide the option for serving eau de vie in our cocktails. Eau de vie, which translates from the French to "water of life," is a un-aged fruit brandy that can be substituted for vodka in cocktails and other drinks. This spirit can be based on a wide variety of fruits, including pears, apples, and raspberries, which have been fermented and distilled. Much like other spirits, eau de vie provides a subtle fruit-tinged flavour so light that it does not overwhelm the taste of the cocktail itself.
Perhaps the best thing about using eau de vie at Bauhaus Restaurant is that it helps support local farmers. Because of the visually-imperfect nature of fruit-based spirits, it is less marketable in commercial liquor stores than clear vodka or whiskey. By serving eau de vie, we're directly supporting local producers by providing a market for the delicious spirit. Try eau de vie in our fabulous and refreshing cocktails at Bauhaus Restaurant.

Bauhaus’s patio is open! The patio is located on Carrall street and is connected to the restaurant via a beautiful wrought iron door, which has been placed at the building’s original entrance. Built in 1890, this historic space was known as the Boulder Hotel but it has undergone many incarnations over the past 100-plus years: it was also home to a saloon, a bank and some even say a brothel. When sight-seeing in the historic Gastown district, the patio is the perfect place to take a break and enjoy a five star lunch prepared by Michelin-starred chef Stefan Hartmann. It’s also a lovely setting for those looking to take in Vancouver’s long summer evenings. Come relax, sip on a crisp glass of German Riesling, and have a bite in one of the city’s most vibrant neighbourhoods.
