Welcome to Sector 7 Kitchen + Barstory behind our signature cocktails where every sip tells a story. 

Nestled in the heart of Richmond, B.C., our mission goes beyond just serving delicious food and drinks; we aim to craft an experience that connects our community through taste and culture. 

From the vibrant streets of Richmond to the bustling neighborhoods of Vancouver, Burnaby, and Surrey, we invite you on a journey through the narratives behind two of our most beloved signature cocktails: the Mojito and the Old Fashioned.

The Mojito: A Refreshing Tale of Cuban Origins

Imagine yourself on the sun-drenched streets of Havana, where the rhythm of salsa dances in the air and the scent of fresh mint tantalizes your senses. It’s here that the Mojito was born, a concoction that embodies the spirit of Cuba in every sip.

Legend has it that the Mojito traces its roots back to the 16th century when it was initially crafted as a medicinal remedy by African slaves working in the sugarcane fields. 

The original recipe included a mix of crude rum, lime, sugar, and mint – ingredients that were believed to have therapeutic properties.

As time passed, the Mojito evolved from a humble elixir to a beloved cocktail enjoyed by locals and tourists alike. Its popularity surged in the 20th century, thanks to literary icons like Ernest Hemingway, who famously frequented the bars of Havana, indulging in this refreshing libation.

At Sector 7 Kitchen + Bar, our rendition of the Mojito pays homage to its Cuban heritage while adding our unique twist. We start with freshly picked mint leaves, muddled to release their aromatic oils, then combine them with premium rum, zesty lime juice, and a hint of cane sugar. 

The result? A symphony of flavors that dance on your palate with every sip, transporting you to the vibrant streets of Havana with each refreshing gulp.

The Old Fashioned: A Classic Tale of Timeless Elegance

Step into the golden age of cocktails with the Old Fashioned, a timeless libation that harkens back to the sophisticated glamour of the 19th century. 

Born out of necessity during the days of Prohibition, the Old Fashioned has stood the test of time, earning its place as a staple in cocktail culture.

The origins of the Old Fashioned are shrouded in mystery, but one thing is certain – its simplicity is its strength. Traditionally made with bourbon or rye whiskey, sugar, bitters, and a twist of citrus, the Old Fashioned is a celebration of bold flavors and refined craftsmanship.

At Sector 7 Kitchen + Bar, we pay homage to this classic cocktail by staying true to its roots while adding our modern flair. 

We handpick the finest spirits, carefully selected for their depth of flavor and character, then marry them with our house-made simple syrup and aromatic bitters. The result is a drink that exudes elegance and sophistication, with each sip telling a story of tradition and taste.
