MEET THE TEAM
Established in 2020, the idea was simple, to begin stripping away some of the cocktail industries luxurious and often hedonistic decadence. We could then begin directing some of the conversation and profits raised to much needed local organisations/programs who we felt were doing invaluable work within our community.
If we could take a percentage of the profits from our sales and redirect them to valuable causes, how much could we really begin to raise? What if we could still enjoy our dining experiences and ample cocktails but, shift the focus to more valuable places.
The disparity in North America and, particularly our home city of Vancouver is rife. We aim to target some of these issues and do our part to solving the issue one cocktail at a time.
Max is started his professional career as a bartender and for a decade honed his craft in bars across the UK and Canada. His passion for creative expression in cocktails and providing warm, genuine service helped Max develop his ideas for bringing the same care and attention we have for our guests, beyond the bar and into our community.
Today, Max organises and hosts all Pine & Palm events.
Pine & Palm operates solely with guest bartenders, allowing creative free reign for all who come on board. Having the opportunity to allow a bartender or creative 'carte-blanche' is the secret to exciting, eccletic and enticing creations.
Previous guest bartenders include Robin Cleaver, Nicole Cote, Carolyn Yu and 'World Class Global Champion' Kaitlyn Stewart.
