1. Oakridge x Pac Rim Patio
Did you really think we were going to give the #1 spot to any patio other than our very own Oakridge x Pac Rim Patio? Well, bias aside, this patio hits the mark and has earned the top spot- offering a unique atmosphere inspired in equal parts by the rice terraces of Southeast Asia and the coastal temperate rainforests of British Columbia. Not only is the design incredible, but executive chef Damon Campbell has also created a fun summer menu from a food truck that stands centre stage on the patio, in our front plaza. Did we mention that creative beverage director Grant Sceney is also serving up refreshing cocktails? Do us a favour, and come see it for yourself – you won’t be disappointed.
2. The Roof at Black + Blue
While you may not be able to get your fill of people-watching at this altitude the roof at Black + Blue makes up for it with comfortable indoor-like seating in their outdoor oasis. There’s a little something for everyone on their menu, but as they say, when in Rome… order the steak.
The country-style courtyard at Giardino really makes one feel as though they’ve been transported to the Mediterranean and the menu reflects this with their Tuscan cuisine complete with pizzas, pastas, meat, and seafood dishes. While the dining room at Giardino is a bit more formal, their courtyard gives a more laidback vibe for those long summer nights.
