- L'Abattoir is in Vancouver's historic Gastown, which boasts much character with its old buildings and interesting past. Whether you're sat at the bar, watching the colourful people go by, or in the back atrium, you will enjoy the unique interior design; French tiles, plenty of glass, steel and natural wood decorate the room. The building itself was built in the 10th century and was Vancouver's first jail. Now how's that for a conversation starter?
Chef Lee Cooper sources local and fresh ingredients to create tasty West Coast, French fare. With a seasonal menu, your taste buds can look forward to new creations and inspiring dishes. L'Abattoir boasts an excellent food menu, but the cocktail menu is not to be overlooked. The Aviation cocktail is beautifully executed with hints of violet that cut through the gin. Another favourite is the Slaughterhouse, and the name pays tribute to Blood Alley, which is right behind L'Abattoir and was home to many butchers years ago.
