Another Vancouver restaurant chapter is coming to a close, with word that Gastown’s patio king, Chill Winston, will soon shut their doors for good this fall.
Known for their farm-fresh menu of food and extensive cocktail program, along with their incredible centrally-located and eye-catching cobblestone patio, Chill Winston has been a favourite hang out of many since they opened at 3 Alexander Street in 2006.
“After 11 wonderful years in our Gastown home, Chill Winston will be officially closing its doors at the end of September.” the restaurant posted on Facebook on June 9.
“Join us as we celebrate a decade+ of cocktails & conversations, blind dates & breakups, business meetings, fashion statements, inside jokes, and fun food. Come down and celebrate the end of an era. It’s going to be a fun summer and we’d love for you to share it with us one last time.”
Luckily, there’s still the entire summer ahead to have your last few cocktails and your fair share of nibbles from their gorgeous “planks” of meat, cheese, or veggies fresh from Tsawwassen’s Earthwise farm, along with their menu of elevated but approachable eats.
Even more good news is that Guilt & Co, the live music venue below Chill Winston, will remain up and running. Guilt & Co. is owned and operated by the same duo behind Chill Winston, which means there will still be a pinch of the ol’ Chill Winston charm humming in Gastown.
Address: 3 Alexander Street, Vancouver
