Hot Spot: House Guest

Monday, November 21, 2011
Last week I attended the media event for House Guest, Gastown's newest hot spot. And, it's just that.

The crowd was eclectic, from fashion bloggers to foodies, there was something for everyone. House Guest is definitely the type of place that attracts beautiful people, but it also boasts great food. I must say that the quality of the food surprised me, even though Liv & Kelsey had told me how great it was.

In addition to the crowd and the food, the space is gorgeous. The branding was done by House Guest bartender, Adam, with owners Justin & Mattie leading the team behind the decor.

Food recommendations:

  • PMC - pimento mac'n'cheese croquettes (the Red Eye ketchup is amazing)
  • Petite Ground Round - braised short rib Sloppy Joe's (favourite!) *
  • Fish Tacos - soft shell crab tacos*
* not on the online menu

I'd had such a great time at the media event that I had to go back the next day to try some other items on the menu (still delish), scope out the actual crowd (still beautiful and well dressed!), and drink some more!

Be sure to save me a spot at the bar.

I am reading all these fantastic reviews and I am getting really excited to check out this place. It sounds like the perfect classy place for a drink and some good food.

The mac n cheese croquettes are our fav too! We went there after the 212 fashion showcase and was pleasantly surprised! It's kind of hidden which is also cool. The decor gave such a vintage-y feel!
