So.Cial at Le Magasin Opening and Ocean Club 1st Year Anniversary

April 4, 2007

By Catherine Barr


Trendy eateries are starting to define the Vancouver dining scene by offering a lot more than just great food. Recently, local celebs and foodies got their fill at two upscale locations. On April 4th, retired Canucks goalie Kirk McLean and former coach Bob McCammon joined forces with owner/restaurant director Maureen Fleming and owner/executive chef Sean Cousins to launch "SO.CIAL at Le Magasin" in Gastown. The opening event, entitled "A Social Affair", highlighted the new establishment's chef's table, dining room, lounge, butcher shop, deli, oyster/seafood bar and patio just in time for spring. Meanwhile, on March 29th, nightclub entrepreneurs Dave Kershaw and Derek Pink celebrated the one year anniversary of their newest dining lounge, The Ocean Club. The West Van club is the newest addition to their list of ventures which includes Tonic, The Stone Temple, Au Bar and Garfinkels in Whistler, and attract lots of local celebs who want good food and a cozy, private place to eat - ultra lounge style.
