Holiday Celebrations at Reflections

Reflections is set to transform from the summer’s idyllic outdoor patio into a festive winter wonderland, just in time for the holiday season. Located in Rosewood Hotel Georgia – Vancouver’s landmark luxury hotel – the all-new makeover of the elegant al fresco bar and lounge will allow guests to enjoy the space for the first time ever during winter months. Opening its doors on November 24th, the winter terrace will be outfitted with cozy holiday décor and will feature a menu inspired by signature holiday dishes.

said Philip Meyer, managing director of Rosewood Hotel Georgia. “Complete with share plates, festive cocktails, and cozy décor ideal for lounging and visiting with friends, we look forward to making the winter pop-up a new favourite tradition for guests and locals alike.”

The perfect spot for a warm winter cocktail and quick bite after a day of holiday shopping, the intimate lounge space will be decked out with twinkling Christmas trees, posies of mistletoe and over-sized candles. Heat lamps throughout will ensure a toasty evening – and for extra chilly nights, guests can cozy up on comfortable couches complete with plush blankets.

Created by Executive Head Chef Harold Lemos, the winter terrace menu will include the lounge’s signature share plates along with new festive additions ranging from Georgia Cheese Fondue to Beef Cheek Crousillants and Turkey-Sage Sausage Rolls to a Pizza Maitake with confit mushroom, caramelized onion, roasted garlic cream, and Okanagan chevre. Along with classic winter sippers like hot toddies, warming mulled wine, and an extensive range of whiskies, the hotel’s award-winning bartenders will also be serving up Christmas-inspired concoctions, such as Little Helper with rum, port and topped with eggnog; and Winter Wonderland with champagne and cognac enhanced by winter spices.
