Capones Wine & Jazz Festival

Before the trendy shops and beautiful people, Yaletown was an industrial area known for not much more than inexpensive studio space, offices and manufacturing workshops. Today, Yaletown is one of the most desirable neighborhoods in Vancouver. Yaletown is a place to see and been seen. And one of the ways to be seen is to attend the first annual Capones Wine & Jazz Festival.

Capones came under new ownership recently and the proprietors figured the best way to put the old jazz club and restaurant back on the map was the host a wine and jazz festival. From now until May 2, Capones will be showcasing great food and wines from five different regions. They will offer for each region an incredible 4 course dinner menu plus a flight of wine. The price is $60 per person (plus taxes & gratuity). Tonight was the opening gala party to kick the event off.

When an invite says free wine and jazz, we generally don’t need much podding to attend. There were six wine stations set up offering dozens of different wines. Sample them all and you’ll be feeling pretty buzz by the end, which we were. Enjoy the video.
