9 Patios You Need To Hit Up In Vancouver Now That It's Actually Sunny Outside

FINALLY! The sun has finally decided to show its face in Vancouver and we are embracing it with open arms. I don't know about you, but the rest of the world is ready to rip off their sweaters, throw on some sunnies and hit up all the patios because summer is basically here.

Lucky for us, there are tons of restaurants and bars in Vancouver with lit patios and good vibes all around. Here are just a few to kick-start patio season so you can start feeling summertime fine ASAP.

Homer Street Cafe

Where:898 Homer St // Downtown

Happy Hour at Homer Stree Cafe is where it's at. Their lush green patio that opens during the summer will make you feel like you're in a garden sanctuary. We also definitely recommend their Honeycomb Chocolate Pudding on their Happy Hour menu -- to die for.


Where:3106 Cambie St // Mount Pleasant

Looking for something to spice up your daily dinner routine? Look no further than Vij's for an exquisite Indian dining experience with a patio that will have you floored. Don't miss out on their unparalleled lamb popsicles made by the all famous Vikram Vij.

Banter Room

Where:1039 Mainland St // Yaletown

Need cute patio pics for the Insta? Banter Room's got the cutest patio for all your Insta needs. Not only do they have an adorable outdoor circle chair, they even have a Moët-Chandon Champagne vending machine -- what?!


Where:15 W Cordova St // Gastown

Is it even really necessary for me to include the famous Gastown Tacofino? Yes, why yes it is. Vancouver's favourite taco bar has opened up their patio once again for all our sun-loving, taco-eating friends. Hello, baja fish tacos and sangria pitchers.

Pier 7

Where:25 Wallace Mews Rd // North Vancouver

This North Van gem has a patio with incredible views of the waterfront looking over to downtown, definitely a view you don't always get. Whether you're in for the seafood, the wine, or the views, none will disappoint.


Where:#2-1600 Howe St // Downtown

Ancora is not only one of Vancouver's best restaurants for seafood, it is also home to one of the most gorgeous waterfront patios in the city. Overlooking False Creek, this patio is perfect for champagn sipping and oyster slurping.

Reflections Bar

Where:801 W Georgia St // Downtown

Another Van fan favourite is the Rosewood Hotel Georgia's Reflections Bar. The garden terrace is so magical with all its twinkling lights, lush garden greenery, and of course, their incredible cocktail menu. Don't forget to snap your obligatory summer patio Insta here.

Parkside Brewery

Where:2731 Murray St // Port Moody

Brews always taste better on a sun-lit patio. Venture out to Port Moody for a day and check out Parkside Brewery at Brewers Row. Not only are their beers fresh, crisp, and thirst-quenching on a hot summer's day, they're also a part of an entire brewery strip. After you've had a cold one here, you can hop on to the next brewery just next door.

Jules Bistro

Where:216 Abbott St // Gastown

A casual French affair is not the only thing you'll find at Jules Bistro, their small and intimate patio is the perfect spot for a romantic dinner with bae or a relaxing happy hour chill sesh with your besties during the summer. Their French cuisine is homey and comforting, and their wine list will make you feel classy AF.
