Locally owned and conceived, Neverland is unlike anything that has ever hit Vancouver. A bit like its co-owners Terri Tatchell and Renee Iaci, it refuses to conform to preconceptions of any kind. Let’s just say the Murphy bed stage and tea-infused cocktails are merely the tip of the iceberg.
Driven by a multitude of diverse passions, a few personal frustrations and possibly a smidgen of insanity, Tatchell and Iaci have set out to fill a void in the Vancouver salon scene. Harkening back to the salons of 18th century Paris, Neverland’s soul comes from a place of creativity, inspiration and gluttonous self-indulgence. With backgrounds in film (Tatchell is the Oscar-nominated co-writer of District 9) and theatre (Iaci is an original founder of Shameless Hussy Productions), the two creators have literally built an environment, menu, team and beverage list traditional restaurateurs would deem impossibly excessive. You can’t be the best at everything. They beg to differ!
