5 amazing rooftops to have a drink in Vancouver

1) Reflections: The Garden Terrace

Located in the inner courtyard on the fourth floor of the Rosewood Hotel Georgia you’ll find The Garden Terrace. This elegant space serves light appetizers but is mostly known for their beautiful cocktails. We recommend their signature drink, the Hotel Georgia. Winter time? Have no fear, the terrace turns into a winter wonderland.

2) The Keg Steakhouse + Bar

Situated in the heart of Yaletown, this Keg location has one of the most desirable rooftop patios in the city. Keep your eyes peeled while you’re here, it’s a popular spot for celebrity watching, especially Canuck players. The lively patio can be enjoyed year-round as it is heated through the winter.

3) Joe Fortes Seafood & Chop House

This garden rooftop patio belongs to a Vancouver favourite. The relaxing patio has a living green wall, cozy outdoor fireplace, and a bustling horseshoe-shaped bar. Patio aside, the atmosphere and happy hour, which runs from 4 pm to 6 pm, are also good reasons to make a visit.

4) Lift Bar & Grill

The view from this rooftop patio is breathtaking. On the water in Coal Harbour, there is nothing blocking your view of Stanley Park and the North Shore Mountains. The bi-level patio has plenty of seating and the restaurant serves sushi, steak, seafood and a good atmosphere.

5) Darby's Public House

More relaxed than the other locations on this list, Darby’s has been a mainstay of the Kits community for 37 years. This neighbourhood spot has one of the largest rooftop patios with beautiful views of the North Shore and is a great spot to grab a beer with friends… they have over thirty on tap!
