$45 cocktail! – Granville Room Launches The 957


The Granville Room Kitchen & Cocktail Bar kicks off summer with the launch of the luxe 957 cocktail, created by resident bar star Trevor Kallies.

Crafted in three parts, the ultra-chic 957 blends Hennessy XO and Belvedere vodka and is topped with an aromatic vanilla foam. Adding further personality, the cocktail is crowned with a ‘GR’ monogram in the Granville Room’s trajan typeface, which is achieved by spritzing whiskey-barrel aged cocktail bitters through a stencil onto the foam. This elegant cocktail has caused quite a stir for Granville Room patrons shelling out $45 to sip on this luscious concoction.

Named after the Granville Room’s address on bustling Granville Street, the 957 was inspired by master mixologist Kallies’ current love affair with cognacs. The Hennessy XO’s rich, spicy notes and natural vanilla flavours are balanced by the vanilla liqueur in the foam and the hints of oak in the Belvedere vodka; the aromatic bitters compliment the foam’s sweetness. Rounding out the 957 experience is a creamy mouthfeel and luxurious texture.

The 957 is among a bevy of new flavours coming to the Granville Room and DHM Bars this spring and summer, thanks to Kallies, who spearheads the company’s cocktail development program and is regarded as one of the city’s finest bartenders. The new summer menus emphasize contemporary cocktails brimming with refreshing, fruity flavours, including new ingredients such as rose, orange & kiwi syrup, cinnamon sticks, Bulleit bourbon, apple twist vodka and cherry brandy. Meanwhile the classic cocktails adhere to the original recipes that have long made them favourites.

An oasis of good taste and casual elegance in the Entertainment District, the Granville Room may just be the least talked about place that everybody loves. Always busy with metropolitan locals and a chic pre-club and post-theatre crowd, the Granville Room focuses on excellent service, fine, quality craft cocktails and a boutique dining menu. The richly dark interior is accented by large mirrors, inviting couches, intimate booths and a lavish bar. The Granville Room is located at 957 Granville Street, and is open from 4pm – 2am daily.
