Karma: Inside downtown Vancouver's new opulent hotel lounge

May 30 2022, 11:27 pm

Vancouver loves its hotel food and beverage concepts, and there’s a new one for you to check out: Karma Lounge.

Located in the Paradox Hotel on W Georgia Street downtown, Karma and its sister spot in the property, Mansion Nightclub, are brought to us by After Dark Hospitality Group.

This new lobby bar experience aims to offer guests and patrons seasonal share plates, hand-selected wines, and signature cocktails.

Karma officially opened on May 20 in Paradox, which was the former Trump International Hotel & Tower Vancouver.

During our visit to the swanky space, we learned that there will be a live DJ playing from 11 am to 11 pm daily. That feature is giving serious Vegas vibes if you ask us.

In addition to the tunes, this place serves up some delicious bites.

Available daily from 11 am till late, folks will find morsels like Truffle Fries, Fried Chicken with gochujang glaze, Lamb Lollipops, and the delicious Chinois Prawns on the menu here.

The latter features crispy fried prawns with chinois mayonnaise, candied walnuts, and sesame seeds, and it’s a must-try.
