Karri and Nico Schuermans invite you to discover a new room, new menus and the same superior service you’ve come to expect.
Almost 10 years ago, Chambar established a new paradigm in the Vancouver restaurant industry by creating an unpretentious, boisterous evolution to fine dining service that translated into an enriched casual experience.
Chambar has evolved again, this time in a newly designed space two doors south of it’s previous location. Now offering breakfast from 8am, lunch, brunch on weekends and dinner, with the continued provision of late night dining. The beautiful south facing patio extends along the thoroughfare of the Keefer Steps and is open from 8am – 11pm until later hours are condoned by the city.
The new space at 568 Beatty street is two doors closer to the Chinatown Stadium sky train station, with the heart of the original location still beating strong. The room offers more light, custom high quality sound system with hidden recording studio insulation strategies and thoughtful functionality.
The new Chambar is a place to go for no reason, or any reason. The original vision to create a space where people always feel welcome and at home remains authentic, a place where people can feel a sense of being part of something bigger, of community, of ideas and conversations that incubate into inspiring actions.
The food continues to be the prime focus, still a strong environmental commitment in both sustainable seafood, local produce and the continuum of operations being carbon neutral. Chef Nico Schuermans has devised a reduced traditional menu to make room for a diverse selection of seasonal small plates.
The wine program is an intelligent, innovative and highly creative compliment to the food. A new wine room sits adjacent to the back dining room giving the program more space and commitment.
The bar program continues in leaps to showcase provocative selections of beautiful and creative cocktails, being served over a stunning 36 foot walnut bar. A multitude of well thought out details bring together streamlined functionality to allow staff to spend more time with guests. The lower level is a comfortable intimate space for private parties with open beam and brick, and windows facing east & south.
The space is characterized by a unique convergence between functionality and a witty forward thinking sensibility. Chambar is beyond being a just a restaurant, it’s a cultural contribution to the city.
