There’s a new addition to the downtown Vancouver waterfront: DosAlas Latin Kitchen and Tequila Bar. This place has the vibe of a Miami nightclub with the curved booths outfitted in white and black leather, the clean lines, and the ornate details to offset it, all resulting in a feel of glitz and glamor. And it is all enhanced by the presentation of the food and drinks! My friend, Chana, and I headed here to explore the other day, and it was a definite experience!
DosAlas is located on the second floor above WildFin, and boasts some fantastic views of the Columbia River from both the inside seating and the very nice covered and heated outdoor deck.
Chana and I had drinks and appetizers, following the “shared plates” and tapas theme of the restaurant. Most dishes are meant to be shared, and the food is definitely Latin American in theme. I ordered the signature margarita in the glass shaker, and Chana ordered a Purple Rain. Seriously, people… this drink glitters. I think there’s actually glitter in it. We then shared guacamole, Brazilian cheese bread, vegetable empanadas, short rib empanadas, and the signature sundae for a little dessert.
It is a bit pricy for a casual evening out, but if you are looking to celebrate a special event, have a date night, you want to dress up and “be seen”… this is your place. Great vibes, very attentive wait staff, and a fun experience all around!
