A fresh and vibrant distillation of the Pacific Northwest, 100-seat Juniper Kitchen & Bar is a Cascadian-themed restaurant in the heart of Vancouver’s vibrant Chinatown neighbourhood. Juniper’s bar programme was created by internationally acclaimed bartender Shaun Layton and is now being continued by Max Borrowman. Max is a native of the Okanagan and learned his trade first in Kelowna and honed his skills at The Lobby Lounge of the Fairmont Pacific Rim Vancouver. He comes to Juniper after a year as Bar Manager at Main Street’s popular Torafuku, where he created the restaurant’s inventive and acclaimed cocktail program. Under Max’s hand, Juniper’s signature selection of local and international small-batch spirits and revolving list of curated gin & tonics will remain. However, Max will expand upon the existing bar program and add new cocktails with a historical flourish, incorporating First Nations and Spanish ingredients and flavours to the menu.
