Sunshine is fleeting in the Pacific Northwest, which means that when it is sunny here, Vancouverites flock to the city’s patios in droves.

But the only thing we love more than an awesome patio is an awesome rooftop patio.

Lucky for us, there are several stellar spaces to choose from around the city, making patio hopping the city’s skyline a total blast.
