Let the fun be gin as you sip on seriously delicious cocktails, snack on fresh summer bites, and soak in the fun with poolside activities and morning wellness experiences. Dive on in, it’s an endless summer affair!

Pac Rim Patio Pop-Up

Fairmont Pacific Rim’s Executive Chef Damon Campbell’s food truck stands center stage of the patio, serving a playful menu of appetizers, mains and refreshing desserts perfect for outdoor dining or packaged for take-away to enjoy while exploring Vancouver. To accompany Campbell’s dishes, Creative Beverage Director Grant Sceney has assembled a line-up of refreshing Malfy Gin cocktails including a series of G&T’s, Spritzes and other summer time sippers, alongside an extensive selection of craft beers and local and international wines.

The outdoor patio will be open Thursday to Sunday from 12:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., with live music daily on Fridays and Saturdays until 8:00p.m., and until 6:00 p.m. every Thursday and Sunday.

Bicycles and e-Bikes

Have we mentioned our bike-program is back in full-swing? Drop on by our guest services team to rent one of our brand new Mercedes-Benz bicycles or eBikes for the day, and head over to the seawall for a relaxing cycle with epic views. The seawall is a popular running, cycling, and walking trail for Vancouverites—get out around 10:00am or 2:00pm for the best experience. We also offer digital bike routes and tours through our new RunGo app which go right to your personal cell phone.

Hotel Art Tour

Fairmont Pacific Rim established its art collection under the direction of owners and developers Westbank and the Peterson Group when the hotel opened in 2010. A collection that is not themed, but rather driven by interest and passion – bringing art and artists into all aspects of the hotel’s design and development. The Pacific Gallery at Fairmont Pacific Rim opened in late 2021 and it features a rotating roster of artists ranging from those local to Vancouver to internationally recognized, with their collection displayed on the hotel’s second floor. Explore the public art and architectural detail at the property, beginning outside and gradually making your way inside to the works throughout the public areas of the hotel.

Botanist Brunch

Grab brunch with the entire family at Botanist, available every Saturday and Sunday. Executive Chef Hector Laguna’s menu depicts the culinary abundance and botany of the Pacific Northwest region – produce rooted from the soil, sustainably sourced seafood, and organic agricultural methods from backyard suppliers. Our brunch offerings include Brioche French Toast, Croque Madame, Cirioli Pasta, Slow Roasted Onion Benedict and so much more. View our menu here and book your brunch reservation online.
