22 of Vancouver’s Best Patios

You ready for summer patio season?

Here is a list of a few of my favorite patios in Vancouver. In addition to my old favorites I have added a few new patios.

1. #PopUpPatio at The Westin Grand – Above the bustling intersection of Homer and Robson is the sun-drenched poolside terrace of The Westin Grand, Vancouver. Once again this space has been transformed into the #PopUpPatio, a bustling rooftop patio lounge open Thursday and Friday evenings.

3. Cactus Club Coal Harbour – Their 200 seat patio will be opened very soon. The wrap around patio has a gorgeous view of our harbour. I took a peak and this is going to be a very busy spot, the wait was 45 minutes for a table indoors at 2PM, so come early. I’m not a huge fan of chain restaurants but, who can deny Cactus Clubs are located at  Vancouver’s sweetest real estate.

5. Black and Blue Rooftop Patio

6. Local Public Eatery patio, situated right across Kitsilano beach is a popular place for sun worshipers and locals. It’s fun and I believe they still have the sangria’ specials.

7. Another Ktisilano patio is right on the beach, The Boathouse.

8. Speaking of beaches, Cactus Club English Bay is very popular for beach go-ers for a quick bite. Although, I would rather just sit in the sand.

Reflections rooftop lounge patio on the 4th floor of Hotel Georgia is one of the more swank patio’s downtown. Reminds me of Las Vegas, you can check out my review. Reflections has corporate atmosphere that turns into a meat market for brokers later in the evening.

16. Market Shangri-La rooftop patio is another swank patio although not as big as Reflections.

17. The Mill, situated on the Coal Harbour’s seawall is a very popular spot for tourists and locals. The only negative, I found was their small drink menu. How can you not have mojito’s or sangria’s if you have a patio??

18. Mahoney and Sons Coal Harbour has undisturbed and expansive views of the harbor. It is an irish bar known popular amongst tourists and the after work crowd.
