This new late night bar menu stars cocktails and pie


Pie and cocktails are a magical twosome, and now one legendary Vancouver restaurant is pairing them up on a new late night bar menu.
Joe Fortes has just launched Joe’s After 9, and the stars of this post-din celebration are slices of decadent housemade pie and artisanal cocktails.

There are four pies to choose from: Lemon Meringue, Apple Crumble, Bourbon Pecan and Espresso Chocolate Chiffon. They’re $7.95 a slice (and after taste-testing the Espresso Chocolate Chiffon, I can attest these rich creations by Joe Fortes’ pastry chef Solana Harrison are very share-able).
Grab a fork and a friend, fam, or date and belly up to the bar to pair the pie with one of Joe Fortes’ featured After 9 cocktails. Get steamy with a Joe’s Irish Coffee (Jameson whiskey, coffee, sugar cube, whip cream) or escape to the islands with Delightful Warning (Jamaican rum, aperol, falernum, lime juice, orgeat syrup). They’re also pouring a barrel-aged Old Fashioned, and a Spicy Buck.

Joe Fortes is located at 777 Thurlow Street in Vancouver.
