3 of the Best Vancouver Patios
Ahhh the warm summer sun, what wouldn’t I give to bask in it everyday? With all the time we spend indoors at work and at home, we savor every moment we get to spend outside. Next time you’re looking for your next lunch or dinner spot, be sure to keep these wonderfully designed patios in mind. Here are our top three:
Reflections at Hotel Georgia
Situated in the heart of downtown Vancouver and nestled within the 4th floor inner courtyard of the historic Rosewood Hotel Georgia is Reflections: The Garden Terrace. This tranquil urban oasis is the perfect place to grab a bite and a drink after work. With a variety of seafood and tapas-inspired dishes, new and original cocktails and a showcase of wines, you are sure to unwind here. This year their dining and design concept is inspired by the Pacific Northwest with a crisp color scheme of blue and white accented by vibrant foliage, flowers and soft lighting. Did we mention that there are also heated cabanas?
The Roof at Black & Blue
Accommodating 120 guests, The Roof at Glowbal Group’s Black & Blue Steakhouse is Vancouver’s largest rooftop patio. Rain or shine, guests can enjoy this patio with an electronic ceiling that can be adjusted depending on weather. Looking out to the neighboring buildings on Alberni Street, you can grab a drink with friends and lounge around a fire or enjoy a perfectly cooked steak from the restaurant’s Josper Grill – the first of its kind in Canada. You are sure to love the warm ambiance as you watch the sun go down from here. Don’t leave without trying one of their decadent desserts!
The flagship restaurant of Glowbal Restaurant Group, Glowbal is exquisitely designed and is situated on the ground floor of TELUS Garden, Vancouver’s newest architectural landmark. Apart from their palatial interiors by BOX Interior Deisgn, the patio also boasts some spectacular features. Protected by soaring, winged, etched Italian glass is the all-weather patio which is partly warmed by an interior energy-smart fireplace. Take a seat and people-watch as you enjoy your meal or if you’re lucky, be seated in one of the unique bird cage-esque booths with your party. This patio is the spot to see and be seen.
