Fine dining returns to the Fairmont Hotel Vancouver’s roof .
Arguably the pop-up restaurant of all pop-up restaurants in Vancouver adds old-world class to a view of the city’s glittering skyline. The Fairmont Hotel Vancouver’s space called The Roof Restaurant + Bar will operate as a public restaurant through fall 2014 offering Vancouverites and visitors panoramic views of the coastal mountains, soaring high-rises and endless expanse of ocean.
First opened in 1939, the classic room became a nationally known for its dinner, dancing and live performances. Even though The Roof is only slated to operate as a public restaurant for a few months before being converted into private function space, this glamorous space takes guests back to the swank glamour of the past.
Buffet breakfast, a la carte lunch, afternoon tea and dinner are based on classic menus that match the ambiance. Expect such traditional favorites as oysters, prime rib and Yorkshire pudding at dinner and a sunken bar guaranteed-to-impress cocktails. The Roof is part of a $12-million renovation that will result in a more classic-contemporary Hotel Vancouver by late 2014. Meanwhile, enjoy this blast from the stylish past while you can.
The hotel is at 900 West Georgia Street, Vancouver British Columbia. The general phone number is 604-684-3131.
