We love a hidden patio situation, but Vancouver’s newest out-of-sight outdoor space might just take the cake when it comes to cool factor. It’s called Chupito and, from the photos, you’d probably have a tough time identifying its whereabouts at first. Chupito can be accessed from the back alley at 322 W Hastings Street. It’s now open Monday to Friday from 5 pm until late and on weekends from noon until late.

Vancouver has no shortage of patios, but that doesn’t mean we aren’t excited about the new seasonal ones popping up, like at the Fairmont Pacific Rim. The contemporary hotel has unveiled a grassy patio located in its front plaza. The space is a collaboration between Oakridge and Westbank. The patio has individual fire pits, lounge areas, and tables with umbrellas where patrons can sit down and enjoy offerings from the Fairmont Pacific Rim’s Executive Chef Damon Campbell’s new food truck.
