Summer may be winding down, but that doesn’t mean outdoor dining has to come to a close.

A city that deals with as much rain as Vancouver knows that a patio can’t just be heated for the winter months – it’s gotta be covered, too.

From secret garden oases to street-side spots with fire pits, these are our picks for the best heated and covered patios for dining out in Vancouver, no matter the weather.

No matter the season, Banter Room’s spacious outdoor patio is the place to be. The space is entirely covered with moveable side windows too, meaning come those brisk winter months the heat is contained while the view and general patio vibes remain intact.

With some of the best Vietnamese food in the city and a heated, covered patio to boot, Anh and Chi is one of our favourite spots to head to during chilly fall and winter days. The patio is also just as stunning as indoors, with lush plant life, a fire pit, and thoughtful furnishings adding to its appeal.

The rooftop patio at Vij’s is the place to be in the cooler months. With heaters, string lights, and plenty of ambience-making plants, this patio space is nearly as stunning as this iconic restaurant’s food.

Head to this cool Mount Pleasant spot for inventive sushi and a seat on the front patio, where heaters keep you warm and a covering keeps you dry. Plus, this place goes hard on the moody, ambient lighting, making dining on the patio just as fun as eating inside here.
