Capones Restaurant and Jazz Club 13th Anniversary and Figmint Lounge Opening

Aug 23, Aug 26

By Catherine Barr


Everybody's "loung-ing" around these days - and two big names stepped up to the plate last week to gain some attention. Yaletown mainstay Capones celebrated their 13th anniversary with an intimate VIP dinner that introduced a brand new menu, a new chef and a new attitude. And speaking of attitude, party number two was held at the ultra new Figmint Restaurant and Lounge, at Cambie and 12th, where chef Lee Humphries and company celebrated at their pre-opening gala with their invited guests.
