It’s easy to forget exactly where you are when you step foot onto this beautifully laid-out, hidden patio at the Rosewood Hotel Georgia. Reminiscent of outdoor spaces found in L.A., New York, and Miami, Reflections, surrounded by soaring buildings, is the ideal urban oasis. With its own private elevator to the fourth floor, it can be tough for some to find on their first visit, so simply ask the hotel staff to point you in the right direction.
Address: 801 West Georgia Street, Vancouver
Head up to the top of this quirky Cambie Street restaurant and sip drinks and munch snacks surrounded by a sky-high “fence” of lights; this is in part what gave the flagship its nickname, Vij’s Lantern. Make the patio your destination, or hang out there waiting for your table in the main dining room.
Address: 3106 Cambie Street, Vancouver
Situated along the seawall in False Creek, The Wicklow Pub boasts one of the sunniest patios in Vancouver. West-facing, the upstairs back patio is where you’ll find a seat to plonk yourself on as you soak up some summer rays or watch a perfect sunset with a cold one in hand.

Lined by a beautiful blooming garden and a living green wall, Joe Fortes’ rooftop patio provides a great escape from the hustle and bustle of Robson Street below. Sun-drenched, the iconic space is a wonderfully peaceful spot to indulge on the restaurant’s signature seafood-focused dishes.

Darby’s Kitsilano patio is a non-pretentious bar patio with an impressive line-up of BC craft beers and decent food specials. It doesn’t hurt that the patio is sun-drenched most of the day and you won’t be frowned upon for showing up in sandals and beachwear.
