Lickerish: A tasty hip-hop treat

Located on Vancouver’s Davie street lies the vibrant Lickerish lounge. Lickerish is the place-to-be for local foodies and hip- hop fanatics.

The two-level lounge has hip-hop written all over it. The red-and-black painted walls feature pictures of famous hip-hop artists from the past to the present: Biggie, Jay Z, Lil Wayne, Beyonce and the King of Pop himself, Michael Jackson.

On busier nights, Fridays and Saturdays, Lickerish serves up music videos as well. The lounge offers two flat screen TVs and DJs spinning tracks.

The menu, can be also viewed on Lickerish’s website, offers shared plates and entrees. Also, there is a cocktail list filled with creatively named martini’s from the “Dirty Hooker” to “Sexual Healing.”

Tibeb Shumu, a local foodie, summed up her Lickerish experience this way: “Lickerish is a place I like to go to when I need to unwind. The buzz at Lickerish is so inviting, from the good food to the music that they are playing. I listen to hip-hop music so when I discovered a place that combined both food and hip,hop I knew I was hooked.”

Marian Baiken, another Lickerish fan, said, ” I love Lickerish. I always have to go there to start my night off right. They play all the hits from old records to the new songs. Can’t really find that anywhere else.”

This Vancouver spot combines hip-hop roots and culture with its tasty food and drinks cooking up a very hot spot for people to enjoy themselves.
