Is it Patio Season Yet?

Is that the sound of snow melting, birds chirping and flowers growing? Yup, it must be time for spring and with the arrival of warmer days and sunnier skies, Vancouverites get ready for patio season.

Before long, spring will be here and with it the chance to hit your favorite patio. Last year we stumbled upon what may very well be the city’s best kept secret: the secluded garden patio at Gotham Steakhouse.


Nestled against the south wall of the art deco heritage building, the patio is warmed by the morning and lunchtime sunshine and protected from the heat of the afternoon. Surrounded by lush flowers and greenery and protected from the street by vine-covered walls, it’s an inviting escape. Last spring, a menu of small plates, specialty cocktails and vino from their award-winning wine list was accompanied by cool beats courtesy of the in-house DJ, and we expect something similar in the works for this year.

While we wait for the last patches of snow to melt and the mercury to rise, you’ll find us at Gotham’s iconic cocktail bar, which is known for live music, expertly crafted cocktails and sublime surroundings.
