Vancouver Events Guide: check out the best things to do during your stay in Vancouver BC! Curated & crafted by the Victorian Hotel in Downtown Vancouver!

Located in downtown Vancouver, the Victorian Hotel offers a unique boutique experience that draws tourists from around the world. From the pillow top beds and flat screen TVs to the super speed Internet and continental breakfast, the hotel provides a cozy nook for tourists traveling in the fall, winter, and spring. However, there’s a whole new appeal when summer rolls around. That’s because the centralized location of the Victorian Hotel puts guests within walking distance to all of Vancouver’s greatest patios.

 

Whether it’s brunch, a romantic tête-à-tête, or a late night brouhaha with fellow sports fans, we’ve listed some of the coolest patios for the hot weather. Check them out on your next visit.

 

Chill Winston

Located near Gastown (not far from CRAB Park at Portside), this eatery, which features an eco-friendly menu and urban chic décor, has close to 100 outdoor seats on Maple Tree Square. This palate-teasing view, meant for a mingling kind of excursion, will only be elevated by the street facing patio, which doubles as a fabulous solution for boosting those depleted vitamin D levels.

 

Chambar

Not far from Chinatown and Yaletown, Chambar’s patio occupies a cool tree-lined street. Open from 8 till late (weather permitting), this is a terrific opportunity to leave your day at the door and indulge in the unpretentious fine dining experience that has defined this award-winning restaurant.  Chambar is a beautifully designed restaurant with quality and elegance in the service, ambiance, and food creations.

 

Joe Fortes

If you’re en route to Stanley Park (or heading back), try stopping at Joe Fortes on Thurlow and Robson. As an award-winning steak and seafood house, this is already a local favourite, but seeing the rooftop patio in full bloom definitely adds an extra dimension to this urban escape.

 

Reflections

Located on 801 West Georgia, this chic outdoor hotel lounge is centred around a fire-pit, making it more reminiscent of the trendy outdoor spaces that dominate high profile cities like LA, New York, and Miami. Tuck into fruity cocktails and Spanish-style plates after a tiring day of sightseeing. And don’t worry if the location seems hard to find, just ask the friendly staff and they’ll be glad to point the way to the rooftop.

 

The Keg Steakhouse & Bar

There’s nothing cookie cutter about the fabulous patio at The Keg’s Yaletown location. As one of Vancouver’s most sought-after open air spaces, this patio is comfortably furnished and generously staffed to ensure guests have a great time while partaking in the classic steak and seafood dishes that have made The Keg a mainstay of the chain restaurant scene.

 

Lift Bar & Grill

Sometimes called “the best patio in Vancouver,” this is another great place to check out if you’re in Vancouver. As a sleek eatery, the upscale Pacific Northwest fare is further enhanced by water and mountain views from the bustling rooftop patio. With brunch, lunch and dinner served fresh and hot, Lift elevates the senses with its tongue tingling steak, seafood, and sushi creations.

 

There’s a whole world to discover outside the Victorian Hotel, which is conveniently located within walking distance of Gastown, Yaletown, and Robson. Try a few of our recommended spots—or let us know if you find one of your own, because Vancouver is a city full of hidden treasures.

What does a light bulb, telephone, artificial pacemaker, Robertson screw, Wonderbra, and a jar of peanut butter all have in common? They are all Canadian inventions. This year, Canada celebrated 150 years of Confederation. It’s an exciting time, and the staff at the Victorian Hotel in Vancouver have decided to celebrate by publishing a little article on what makes  Canada so awesome. Spoilers—there’s plenty of back patting ahead, so get ready.

 

Canada has long enjoyed a celebrated international reputation. From acting as brand ambassadors for universal healthcare to undertaking peacekeeping missions around the globe, much of the world sees The True North Strong and Free as a compassionate and welcoming country where the goodness is wrapped in Canadian bacon and drenched in maple syrup.

 

Being Canadian is synonymous with qualities such as friendliness, caring, freedom, honesty, health, and good governance. It’s the 7th highest ranked in the 2017 World Happiness Report, which assesses economic, health, and polling data, and averages it out over three years.

 

Naturally, as members of the tourism industry, everyone at the Victorian Hotel knows that this is outdoor land. The abundance of natural beauty is one of Canada’s greatest resources, and it spills into the city in the form of cool tree-lined sidewalks and glorious green spaces. Oh, and since the World Health Organization recently ranked Canadian air quality as the third cleanest on the planet, feel free to gasp in delight as you take in the city’s sights and sounds.

 

As one of the most multicultural countries in the world, Canada stands as an example that people from different backgrounds, ideologies, and belief systems not only have the ability to live together, but to thrive together. In fact, Canada was the first country in the world to adopt multiculturalism as an official policy in 1971.

 

Of course, like all countries, Canada still does have its challenges. For example, there’s the conundrum of trying to reconcile its status as an oil producer with sustainability practices, serving the medical needs of an aging population, and governing a nation of people that are increasingly diverse and complex.

 

However, the important thing is that Canadians have never stopped trying. This outstanding attitude often manifests itself in little ways, from a willingness to help a stranger on the street, to the super-friendly staff at the local watering holes and hangouts—including, of course, the Victorian Hotel!

 

It will be interesting to see what the country can accomplish over the next 150 years. And for anyone still wondering who needs more Canada, the answer is simply everyone.

Celebrated on the third Sunday of June, the history of Father’s Day took root when Mrs. Sonora Smart Dodd decided to celebrate her father William Smith, who raised his six children alone after his wife passed away from delivery complications.

 

The first Father’s Day was observed on June 19, 1910, in Spokane, Washington, and thereafter families have used the holiday to remember and celebrate all things associated with dad. As a boutique hotel in Vancouver, many families come to the city to celebrate Father’s Day. To help create the perfect celebration, the team at the Victorian Hotel has put together a list of places that are easily accessible from the hotel’s Downtown Vancouver location.

Buy Dad a Beer—or Three

 

Vancouver is famous for a wealth of microbreweries that are ready to serve up a tall glass of frothy, chilled goodness on demand. Enjoy a tall cool one or enjoy a tasting flight at nearby venues like the CRAFT Beer Market, the Alibi Room, Rogue, or Tap & Barrel which features all the heavy hitters with over 20 taps at both their Gastown, Olympic Village, and West Broadway locations.

Take a Brunch Break

 

Okay, we know that brunches are more associated with Mother’s Day, but who doesn’t love a good omelette station? Food-wise, Vancouver is dotted with an array of West Coast eateries, many of which lay out lavish dad-inspired brunches. A few of our favourites are Café Pacifica in the Vancouver Hotel, the Boathouse Restaurant (located 10 minutes away in English Bay), and for the more down-to-earth dad, we recommend Jethro’s Fine Grub, which is located about 20 minutes away in Vancouver, near the University of British Columbia.  A hidden gem breakfast spot and favourite with the downtown Vancouver locals is Café Medina just 10 minutes walking distance at 780 Richards Street.

 

Tee Up

 

If dad’s a golfer, a Father’s Day treat should be no problem. If a full round of golf isn’t quite within reach, opt for the more budget-friendly Pitch & Putts at Stanley Park, Queen Elizabeth Park, or Rupert Park.  Favourite Public Golf Courses in Vancouver (just 25 minutes away by car) are McCleery, Fraserview, Langara, and Northlands.  These golf courses defy the myth that having “public” in its name means “mediocre”.  Tourism Vancouver and locals alike recommend these great courses where mountains serve as a backdrop to their lush fairways and rolling greens.

Indulge in Some Culture

 

Shakespeare had quite a lot to say on fatherhood. If literature is a popular pastime for your household, a visit to “Bard on the Beach” may be just the ticket. Bond with Dad over creative modern renditions of all The Bard’s greatest plays. Starting from June 10th, this year’s performances include Much Ado About Nothing, The Winter’s Tale, The Merchant of Venice, and The Two Gentlemen of Verona—all from the quaint Bard Village at Kits Point, an outdoor elegant theatre company located at Kitsilano Beach waterfront.  A must do adventure on a gorgeous summer night!!

Spend the Day at Stanley Park

 

This one is weather permitting. On a sunny Vancouver day, Stanley Park is only 10 minutes away by bus. Bike (renting bicycles at the park entrance) or walk the Seawall before finding the perfect picnic spot. As a bit of a splurge, several eateries offer premade picnic baskets to go. A few of our favourite suggestions are The Dirty Apron, Nosh, Giovane Café, and Picnix, which specializes in delicious, seasonal foods that are beautifully presented and cleverly stored for that perfect picnic with Dad.

 

Father’s Day only comes around once a year, so seize the opportunity to show Dad how much you care. Vancouver is full of unique activities, so find one that appeals to your dad—and make sure to book in advance. If you’re staying at the Victorian Hotel and need some advice to facilitate the perfect Father’s Day plans, just ask our knowledgeable staff for their assistance.

Finding a Spot to Watch the 2016 Fireworks

Fireworks-VancouverEvery year the skies of Vancouver light up in a rhapsody of colour. The annual Celebration of Light is a dazzling display of pyrotechnics that draws thousands of visitors to our fair city each year.

This annual event is a competition between three international cities and totally free to the public. Although finding a spot to watch the display can be a bit of a challenge, as a guest of the centrally located Victorian Hotel, you’ll have easy access to choice viewing locations throughout the city.

Dates for this year’s exhibition are listed below. The Celebration of Light competition begins promptly at 10:00pm over English Bay each night and carried on for about half an hour.

  • NetherlandsSaturday, July 23: 10pm to 10:25pm
  • AustraliaWednesday, July 27: 10pm to 10:25pm
  • AmericaSaturday, July 30: 10pm to 10:25pm

Best Locations

1. English Bay

Probably the best vantage point, if you don’t mind the crowds. The atmosphere in English Bay is intimate and intense. Remember to arrive early to stake out a good spot, and don’t even try to drive. Use the bus or SkyTrain, which is located about 5 minutes from the Hotel at Waterfront Station. You can also try ahead to make a reservation at one of the restaurants in English Bay, the prominent Cactus Club, Boathouse, and Milestone all have patios and exceptional views of this summertime spectacle.

2. Vanier Park

Situated directly across the bay from English Bay Beach, Vanier Park is famous for being the home of the Museum of Vancouver and the H.R. MacMillan Space Centre. You may even end up rubbing shoulders with a few Shakespearean thespians, as this is also home to Vancouver’s famous Bard on the Beach festival.

3. Kitsilano Beach

Kitty corner to Vanier Park, Kitsilano Beach is another prime viewing location. Once again, transit will be limited, so remember to plan your route. The staff at the Victorian Hotel will be pleased to answer your questions, so you can find your way to beautiful Kitsilano.  Try walking or cycling along the well designated bicycle path ½ a block from the Victorian Hotel.  The bicycle lanes safely lead to the Burrard Bridge and the seawall to Kitsilano Beach.  The Boathouse restaurant situated prominently at Kitsilano Beach has an amazing second floor patio that allows unobstructed views of the evening sunsets and fireworks spectacle.  We recommend booking early for this location as it is highly sought after by the locals.

4. Stanley Park

The fireworks are just another excuse to visit one of Vancouver’s top tourist attractions. If you’re trying to avoid the crowds, say so long to English Bay and head into Stanley Park. Any point along the Stanley Park Seawall that English Bay will provide a great view of the Fireworks.

5. Dundarave Pier

Located in West Vancouver, this family-friendly spot is a local favourite as it’s relatively quiet compared to the other locations. However, it will take a bit more planning to get there.  Make it a day trip along the SeaBus to the NorthShore of Vancouver and buy fresh snacks for a picnic at the Lonsdale Quay Market, and take a direct bus to the Capilano Suspension Bridge. After your tour of the suspension bridge, dine at the many restaurants located at Park Royal before walking to Ambleside Beach to enjoy the fireworks with the locals of North and West Vancouver.

6. Burrard Bridge

If you don’t mind the barebones experience, you can join the locals for a plum spot on the pedestrian walkways of the Burrard Street Bridge. Just remember, barebones means no beach, no concession stands—and no bathrooms!

Planning for The Celebration of Lights

The Celebration of Lights is a much-loved event that has come to define summers in Vancouver. Just remember that getting there and back requires some patience and planning. It’s likely that busses and trains will be packed both ways, so remember to take some water, snacks, or a picnic.  Then get ready for one of the most masterful fireworks display you’ve ever seen.

Staying at The Victorian Hotel

As a guest staying at the Victorian Hotel in Vancouver , you have access to our friendly and knowledgeable staff that can provide great recommendations. And you’ll have easy access to the very best Vancouver has to offer, located just blocks from Gastown and Yaletown!

If you have any questions about things to do in Vancouver, or about any of our hotel services, please give our front desk a call at 604.681.6369 (toll-free 1.877.681.6369).

Victorian Hotel’s Traveler Tips in Honour of World Environment Day – June 5th 2016

In honour of World Environment Day (June 5, 2016) and Canadian Environment Week (June 5 – 11, 2016), The Victorian Hotel has created a five-point list to guide people interested in a more environmentally friendly approach to travel.

This doesn’t necessarily mean camping with a fibre-rich bowlful of nuts and berries for breakfast. Rather, the small decisions you make when planning your trip can help ensure that you minimize your ecological footprint while still having a great time.

1)      Opt for a stay-cation or minimize travel distances

Many forms of transportation can contribute to climate change. Why not opt to discover the charms of the next city or province? You’ll have a great time discovering local charm and hidden gems in your city, province, or country—and minimize holiday emissions.

2)      Consider your transportation

Some forms are worse than others. Can you drive or take the train? If you have to fly, look toward airlines with higher occupancy rates and newer, more efficient aircraft.  While in downtown Vancouver, choose the Victorian Hotel for its bespoke bicycle rentals to tour the local espresso and culinary scene along Vancouver’s well renowned bike lanes that encompass the best beaches, landmarks, and parks.

3)      Choose your accommodation carefully

Look for hotels that are conveniently located and use earth friendly products. For example, the Victorian Hotel is walking distance from all kinds of restaurants and attractions around Vancouver. Additionally, patrons enjoy local, handmade products like Purely Salt Spring soap, shampoo, and conditioner.

4)      Be Responsible

Act like you would in your own home. Hang your towels so they can be reused. Sheets don’t need to be changed every day. Shut off lights and turn off the air conditioner/heater when you leave your room. Remember to recycle newspapers and drink containers.

5)    Watch where you go…and what you buy

Avoid activities that are significantly harmful to the environment. For example, sports like skydiving burn a lot of energy, whereas an activity like golf can be relatively benign, particularly if the course makes use of recycled water. When it comes time to buy souvenirs, avoid anything made from animals, especially endangered species, which could be illegal.

Being an earth friendly traveller isn’t hard. By making informed decisions, you can have a terrific time and act as a responsible global citizen—wherever you happen to be!

If you’ve booked at the Victorian Hotel in Downtown Vancouver for the Victoria Day weekend, be sure give us your name for a chance to win two tickets to the Vancouver Art Gallery.

For most people, Victoria Day heralds the unofficial start of summer. It was made Canada’s first official state holiday by the legislature of the Province of Canada back in 1845. In fact, Canada is the only country that commemorates Queen Victoria’s birthday as an official holiday!

As Canada’s sovereign at the time of Confederation, Queen Victoria’s consent was necessary to form the new country in 1867. She is also credited with making Ottawa the nation’s capital a decade earlier.

When Queen Victoria passed away in 1901, her birthday became an annual holiday. Though it was initially meant to be celebrated every May 24th , today the actual day moves around a lot to ensure locals get to enjoy a long weekend. (Often called the “two-four” long weekend for a case of beer.)

Queen Victoria gave her name to the Victorian age and countless other things associated with the era, such as dress style (it’s said she began the tradition of the bride wearing white to weddings), cities (including BC’s capital and Regina, Saskatchewan) and, of course, many buildings. She is, after all, the namesake for the Victorian Hotel! The central building was built in

1898 at the time of the great gold rush. The second built in 1902 (turn of the Century) called the “Victoria Block” connected with the first occupying a corner City Bloc.

The Victorian Hotel manages to hold onto its past as well as embrace the future, with large open spaces inspired by the high-ceilings of the time, but servicing all the amenities we expect from a hotel today. It is a unique boutique setup, that affords easy access to all the city has to offer—including the Vancouver Art Gallery!

Raffle Prize: two tickets to the Vancouver Art Gallery

To commemorate Victoria Day, we will be raffling off two tickets to the Vancouver Art Gallery.

The current exhibition features Mashup: The Birth of Modern Culture, the Vancouver Art Gallery’s biggest exhibition yet, 3 years in the making and featuring over 156 different artists!

The raffle will take place on Saturday May 21st. If you’re staying with us during the Victoria Day long weekend, remember to enter your name in the draw box by the front desk—or ask us to do it for you!

  • The winner will be given the tickets Saturday May 21.
  • Complimentary tea and cake will be offered in the Lobby on Monday May 23rd, 2016 for guests to enjoy Victoria Day.

We wish everyone good luck and a great Victoria Day long weekend!

If you have any questions or to learn more, please give our front desk a call at 604.681.6369 (toll-free 1.877.681.6369).
