The February issue of the Revelstoke Mountaineer Magazine highlights budding new businesses in Revelstoke, takes a look at the importance of place in the elementary school curricula, and brings you the latest breaking news from our community.

On the cover of this issue, sisters Iris, Emily, and Eunice Kim of Revelstoke’s newest restaurant, Seoul Street. They are the faces of the new downtown pub and brining a new lively atmosphere to revelstoke’s nightlife. The pub imports Korean drinks culture to Revelstoke, including special drinking games and foods designed for sharing. To learn more, see our feature this issue.

This month’s issue features stories of fresh starts and new beginnings, including several new entrepreneurial enterprises, including the growing retail and artistic commercial scene in the Big Eddy.

Mountain biking has exploded in the past few years, and alongside it the bikpacking/gravel bike trend, as people seek to explore the backcountry. Jackalope Bikes, a creation of Jack Sutter, seeks to capitalize on the trend, making custom chromoly bikes in its new Big Eddy Workshop. Check out our feature.

In her Bean Business feature, Nora Hughes explores two new coffee roasteries opening doors in the Big Eddy. Dose Coffee, which has a downtown retail location operated by Lauren Webster and John Pierce, will be opening a new roastery in the Big Eddy. They’ll be joined by new competition in the neighbourhood, as Holm Coffee Company, operated by Izzy and Simon, opens its doors.

Meanwhile, in downtown Revelstoke, sisters Iris, Emily, and Eunice Kim are the driving force behind the new Seoul Street pub, located on First Street west in the location of the former Grizzly sports pub. The sisters plan to bring Korean bar culture to Revelstoke through cocktails and drinking games. They emphasize communal experiences, including a menu focused on dishes designed to be shared. Try their pajeon, “a pan-fried savory Korean pancake filled with green onions, white onions, carrots and corn, with a side of sesame-soy vinaigrette.”

Their cocktails feature a Korean twist, such as the Gangnam cocktail —” a cocktail with soju, triple sec, grenadine and grapefruit juice.”

Another new storefront opened downtown in January. The Revelstoke Women’s Centre, operated by Community Connections, opened its Orton Avenue space and will offer several services, including counselling for women, therapeutic groups, legal help, and childcare and income services. The centre opened on Jan. 9 and will host and invites women to attend an opening ceremony on Feb. 2. Details inside.
