The time has finally come: our annual list of the best new patios in Vancouver is here. It’s always a blast to see the incredible outdoor spaces that pop up in every corner of the city, and this year it feels like there are more places to dine and drink al fresco than ever before.

From hidden hole-in-the-wall gems to a rooftop garden paradise that was given new life, Vancouver’s patio game has seriously never been stronger.

Here is our list of the six best new patios in Vancouver.

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

Address:Ā 322 W Hastings Street, Vancouver


CRAFT Beer Market ā€“ English Bay

Folks can now head into this 1795 Beach Avenue restaurant and enjoy over 100 beers on tap and quality comfort eats on its sprawling covered patio. If you’re looking for some casual good times on a year-round patio with a retractable roof, the views and vibes here can’t be beat.

Vancouver has no shortage of patios, but that doesnā€™t mean we arenā€™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 OakridgeĀ andĀ 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 Rimā€™s Executive Chef Damon Campbellā€™s new food truck.
