The Modern Bartender's claim to fame is simple: when it comes to high quality barware, it's literally the only game in town. Whether you're a cocktail aficionado or an industry professional, it has quickly become the go-to place to pick up high-end essentials – from ice cube trays (including the coveted King Cube), to mixing spoons, to mixology books, to flavoured syrups and more than 100 varieties of bitters (cocktail flavouring that no self-respecting drinking establishment would be without).

In addition to having the largest selection of bitters anywhere in the province, The Modern Bartender is also the BC distributor for The Apothecary Bitters Co., a local company making small-batch cocktail flavouring that can't be found anywhere else.

“Vancouver just has this complete lack of places where you can go and buy all the essentials for imbibing drinks and cocktail culture,” explains owner Rod Moore. “What happens if you're a new bartender, and you want to get the essentials together? There was literally nowhere to go. There were a couple places you could get a few things, but the rest you had to do online.”

Vancouver shops for bartending supplies and accessories

A bartending-focused store in the middle of Chinatown seemed like a funny fit back in 2012. Today, the shop has secured its spot as a retail fixture for mixologists and is conveniently located just around the corner from a few of the city's best cocktail hotspots: The Keefer Bar, Juniper and Bao Bei. Enthusiasts turn to the Modern Bartender to find equipment such as ice machines and aging barrels, and to stock up on hard-to-find ingredients like syrups, bitters and tinctures.
