Drink Urban Lounge (New Westminster)
Favorite new chic drinks lounge, for sure, the lovely Drink Urban Lounge. I recently took my 2 lovely interns, Anabelle and Jessica, out to New Westminster. We are working on a project for The Network Hub New Westminster campus, so we went to check out what is around Columbia Street. We actually calculated the time it takes from the New Westminster Skytrain station to the new campus of The Network Hub in River Market (by the Quay): 4 minutes and 30 seconds. Walking. WHOA.
Anyways, I digress. We went to Drink Urban Lounge on the recommendation of lots of friends from Twitter: Briana Tomkinson, Pamela Findling, Brigette Mayer and Rob Jones. And I’m glad we did. Inexpensive drinks made exactly the way I like them.
Drink Urban Lounge is the newest member of The Arbuthnot Group of pubs and liquor stores. We are a Yaletown bar in your backyard. We are located at 609 Columbia Street in New Westminster, just steps away from New Westminster Quay Market and Boardwalk.
I should probably tell them it’s not anymore the New Westminster Quay Market but River Market. Anyways…I ordered a Chocolate Goddess, made to perfection with Van Gogh Double Espresso, Creme De Cacao, Cream and Chocolate Shavings (at a very reasonable $ 7.25). Delicious. And the waitress was amazing (Julia was her name, I think?!).
I think that in the future, The Network Hub New Westminster campus will probably partner with Drink Urban Lounge to offer specials to our Passholders. Which would make for amazing Friday Liquor O’Clock. I will definitely be coming back to Drink Urban Lounge in New Westminster with frequency. Great service, great drinks, extremely comfortable and chic atmosphere (my photo doesn’t do it justice)
