Cinara Restaurant – Best Downtown Restaurant Award 2016

Vancouver Magazine’s Best Restaurants of 2016

The Victorian Hotel blends historical hotel charm with contemporary comforts and an unpretentious atmosphere. This one-of-a-kind property sits between Gastown and Yaletown, offering easy access from a dynamic urban setting.

Many people don’t know that the hotel shares its historical space with an assortment of amazing retailers, including Cinara Restaurant, which was just recognized by Vancouver Magazine in the 2016 Restaurant Awards.

Cinara Restaurant, operated by Chef Lucais Syme, is well known for its Italian inspired cuisine, upheld by traditional cooking techniques. As part of the retail space around the Victorian Hotel, customers have quick and easy access to sumptuous goodies that range from naturally leavened breads and pastas to homemade preserves and creamy cheeses.

Cinara is well know for using fine and fresh quality ingredients that allow clean flavors to layer and build on each other,” explains a representative of the hotel. “Their reputation for serving fine, fresh food in a comfortable and approachable setting has most certainly earned them a name on the local dining scene, and we are thrilled they have been recognized for their efforts.

Cinara is located at 350 West Pender Street, Vancouver, British Columbia—which is housed within the Victoria Block Building of the Victorian Hotel.  Ample Homer Street parking is available. In addition, there are two parking garages located close by, one on the corner of Pender and Richards, and the other on the corner of Pender and Cambie.

Improv After Dark

Throne and Games at Vancouver TheatreSports League

Throne and Games is an elimination comedic improv format inspired by HBO’s wildly successful Game of Thrones and the book series it is based on, George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire.

The Iron Throne of Games sits empty. Three improv families descend on the Throne, each family feeling it has a rightful claim. Throne and Games is an improvised parody filled with betrayal, death, eliminations, unlikely alliances, and above all, humour.

Laughter is coming…

Thursday, Friday & Saturday at 7:30pm
