Hidden behind a quirky ‘Pet Psychic’ front, this occult-themed speakeasy not only has all vibes in check, but also handcrafted cocktails inspired by Tarot cards and a small bites food menu that has a spin on classic items.

Recognizing the growing trend towards mindful drinking, Arcana’s bar menu gives ample room to low- and zero-proof cocktails.

Created by the same imaginative minds behind the beloved Storm Crow Alehouse & Storm Crow Tavern, Arcana fills the void left by the shuttered bars.

Arcana might be marketed as a speakeasy, but there’s actually no secret password or secret riddle you gotta solve to enter here.

Located in the former The Hart unit in Gastown, Arcana is all about open secrets and delightful discoveries.
