Five Festive Downtown Local Lounges

Take a load off this holiday season and indulge in some traditional local haunts. There is something magical about Christmas time and what better way to get in the spirit than visiting some of the most iconic Vancouver lounges.

Bacchus at the Wedgewood

Treat yourself to the special ‘Nutcracker Afternoon Tea’ from December 1st to 30th, from 2 to 4PM. At the Bachhus lounge you’ll find lush velvet banquettes, warm Cherrywood, a cozy fireplace, Xmas décor and so much more at this luxurious boutique hotel.


Hawksworth Cocktail Bar at the Hotel Georgia

Not only is Hawksworth one of the most impressive and scrumptious restaurants in the city but the bar serves only the freshest and finest ingredients to craft their seasonal beverages and craft beer menu. The beef burger with Applewood bacon, cheddar and pomme frites is a must.


Joe Fortes

Always decked out for the holidays, the classically appointed Joe Fortes lounge is a popular stop amongst locals and visitors. For culinary seafood specialties, Joe’s takes the cake. Love the classic clam chowder, jumbo prawn cocktail and of course, the fried oysters.


The Four Season’s Yew Bar

After a hard day of shopping, there is no better way to spend happy hour or ‘Apertivo Hour’ than at The Four Season’s beautifully appointed Yew Bar. Daily from 2 to 6PM offering a new line up of refreshing well-crafted cocktails and tasty bites.


The Gerard Lounge at the Sutton Place Hotel

A Vancouver landmark, Gerard Lounge is reminiscent of an English club with tapestries, leather chairs and a cozy fireplace. The hotel is always decorated beautifully with a hustle and bustle type of “Who’s Who” atmosphere, glorious cocktails, and light bistro fare.
