M.I.A. is a venue that needs to be experienced in order to be understood. Upon first entering the space, you descend a set of stairs into darkness. A black lacquered entranceway entices you to use all your senses as you navigate your way into the main room where the impressive Funktion-One system rises to greet you.
Wander further to the back of the futuristically designed main room to the now open M.I.A. sake bar. The combination of poured concrete and exposed brick bring a warm and intimate feeling to the space. The exposed brick being the same walls from the original foundation of the building, solidifying M.I.A’s roots within Gastown.
Manned by Theo Loyd-Khols, who you may recognize from the Dunlevy Snackbar, here you will be able to enjoy a selection of sake, sake cocktails and sake bottle service. The types of sake that will be available to purchase include Wind Water Man Junmai Sake, Takasago Yamahai Plum Sake and Hakkaisan Sparkling Nigori Sake, just to name a few.
