Here are 10 awesome covered patios in Vancouver to check out this month
It may be patio season, but it doesn’t look like the sun has gotten the memo yet. Luckily, there are plenty of gorgeous covered patios in Vancouver to keep you dry, relaxed, and filled with delicious food and drink all season long. From bars to cafes to brasseries – to every garden patio in between – there really is a place for everyone on this list.
Let’s dive in. Here are 10 amazing covered patios in Vancouver to check out this season.
Chupito & Canteen 189
Chupito’s is one of Vancouver’s best hidden bars, located on the rooftop of Cantina 189. While the concept was originally a tent patio, this year Chupito is going outdoors. But there are still umbrellas covering every table – so that totally counts. With the return of their popular frozen margarita maker and charcoal grilled entrees, we doubt anyone is focusing on what’s up in the sky.
Where: 322 West Hastings Street, enter the back alley
The Keefer Yard
Undoubtedly one of the most dynamic and fun nights out in town, The Keefer Yard is located next to one of Vancouver’s most acclaimed bars. Enjoy incredible Asian-inspired cocktails, delicious food, and some of the best happy hour deals in town. Plus, there’s a mini-golf course that also operates through donations! Graffiti walls meet delicate fairy lights at The Yard.
Where: 135 Keefer Street
R&B beer and pizzeria
Sip a few lagers or sours under the chilli lights at one of East Van’s most iconic breweries. Whether you’re heading out on a Friday night or meeting friends after work, the vibes are laid back, retro and amazing for hopping on the patio. Speaking of which, there’s also an e-bike right next door if you want to make a night of it.
To sweeten the pot during the week, they have industry nights every Monday with local DJs spinning and pints for $6.50.
Where: 1-54 4th Avenue East
As the name suggests, Banter Room is the perfect place to meet up with friends to chat over delicious, nifty drinks. Try brunch specials like Cornflake Fried Chicken & Waffles or Breakfast Bruschetta, or partake in their daily happy hour. There are also plenty of late-night snacks (after 11 p.m.!) to fuel your next night out if you’re looking for places that are open late.
